American Phrase Friday

Benjamin_Franklin_1767I know I’ve been missing this one a lot lately, so I’ll try and make up for it in this post. All these quotes are from Poor Richard’s Almanac, by Benjamin Franklin.

“Do good to thy friend to hold him, to thy enemy to gain him.”

“Look before, or you’ll find yourself behind. By diligence and patience the mouse bit in two the cable.”

“There are no fools so troublesome as those who have wit.”

“Three may keep a secret….if two of them are dead.”
