So I recently unearthed a little gem called Poor Richard’s Almanac, by Benjamin Franklin, a collection of periodicals were issued from 1732 to 1757. They contain humour, information, and proverbial wisdom. Some of the quotes seem really ahead of their time, definitely a high recommendation!
“If you would not be forgotten
As soon as you are dead and rotten,
Either write things worth reading,
Or do things worth the writing.”
– Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard’s Almanack 1738
