Hodgepodge of ideological advice which Franklin synthesized from his Poor Richard's Almanack arranged as a type of sermon from "Father Abraham". Certainly contains some witty adages and timeless truisms on prudence, temperance, and diligence, but overall its philosophy is a secularized "Calvinist...more

A few wonderful, noteworthy quotes :

Ο Δρόμος προς τον Πλούτο αποτελεί ένα εξαισιο δείγμα πρακτικής σοφίας που ξεχειλίζει απο την βαθιά κατανόηση της ζωής που προσφέρει η αεικίνητη παρατήρηση συνδυαζόμενη με την άσβεστη δίψα για γνώση.

Charles Ryder: Nothing will surprise me about your religion.

Some real protestant work ethic secular asceticism if I ever saw it.

Very short book that does a great job of extracting the parts of Franklin's autobiography and almanac on matters relevant to setting yourself up for success in business. "Experience keeps a dear school, but fools learn in no other" is one of my favourite quotes from the book. Another one on the d...more

Good advice for retards with no common sense

We are taxed twice as much by our idleness. Idleness taxes many of us much more, if we reckon all that is spent in absolute sloth, or doing of nothing, with that which is spent in idle employments or amusements, that amount to nothing.

Sloth,by bringing on diseases, absolutely shortens life.
