Coincidentally, I just this morning happened upon a lively online piece:

27 INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT BEN FRANKLIN

Read it and be amazed — unless you happen to be a big student of history and already know Benjamin Franklin inside and out (smile).

But first a trio of priceless Franklin quotes — there are actually hundreds of them, (see link below) many that we use all the time but don’t know they’re from the nimble mind of BF:

“When you’re testing to see how deep water is, never use two feet.”

“To cease to think creatively is to cease to live”

“The Constitution only guarantees the American people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.”
