The Way to Wealth

Benjamin Franklin


All quotes by Benjamin Franklin

  • We are taxed twice as much by our idleness, three times as much by our pride, and four times as much by our folly.
  • God helps those who help themselves
  • If you love life, then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of
  • The sleeping fox catches no poultry
  • Lost time is never found again
  • He who rises late must trot all day
  • Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.
  • There are no gains without pains
  • At the working man’s house, hunger looks in, but dares not enter
  • Industry pays debts, while despair increases them
  • Plough deep while sluggards sleep, and you shall have corn to sell and keep
  • Never leave till tomorrow what you can do today
  • The cat in gloves catch no mice
  • Little strokes fell great oakes
  • Since you are not sure of a minute, do not throw away an hour
  • A life of leisure and a life of laziness are two different things
  • Keep your shop and your shop will keep you
  • The eye of the master will do more work than both hands
  • If you want a faithful servant, and one that you like – serve yourself
  • A fat kitchen makes a lean will
  • If you want to be wealthy, think of saving as well as earning
  • What maintanes one vice would bring up two children
  • Beward of little expenses; A small lead will sink a great ship
  • Fools make feasts, and wise men eat them
  • Buy what you do not need, and soon you will sell your neccessities
  • It is foolish to lay out money in a purchase of repentance
  • Silks and satins and scarlets and velvets put out the kitchen fire
  • A ploughman on his legs is higher than a gentleman on his knees
  • Always taking out of the pot, and never putting in, one soon comes to the bottom
  • If you want to know the value of money, go and try to borrow some
  • Pride is as loud a beggar as need
  • It is easier to suppress the first desire than to satisfy all that follow it
  • Pride that dines on vanity sups on contempt
  • Think what you do when you run into debt; you give to another power over your liberty
  • The second vice is lying, the first is running into debt
  • It is hard for an empty bag to stand upright
  • Creditors have better memories than debtors
  • Rather go to bed supperless, than rise in debt
  • Experience keeps an expensive school, but fools will learn in no other
  • Those who will not be counseled, cannot be helped
