Benjamin Franklin compiled these pearls of wisdom on wealth and personal finance
from Poor Richard's Almanack. Today is 250th anniversary since the book fist
appeared as a pamphlet in 1758.
Some proverbs from Benjamin Franklin's Way to Wealth: "There are no gains, without pains" "One today is worth two tomorrows" "Time is money" "A life of leisure and a life of laziness are two things" "Get what you can, and what you get hold" "Sloth, like rust, consumes faster than labor wears, while the used key is always bright" "Have you somewhat to do tomorrow, do it today" "The eye of a master will do more work than both his hands" "Early to bed, and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise"
