Friday Funny June 10, 2022 Poor Richard’s Wisdom

Happy Friday!  This week I thought I would share some notable sayings that Benjamin Franklin gave us through Poor Richard’s Almanac.


Fish and Visitors stink after three days.

Who has deceiv’d thee so oft as thy self?

Well done is better than well said.

What you would seem to be, be really.

Search others for their virtues, thyself for thy vices.

There is much difference between imitating a good man, and counterfeiting him.

Wink at small faults — remember thou hast great ones.

Little Strokes, Fell great Oaks.

Many Foxes grow grey, but few grow good.

Beware of little Expenses: a small Leak will sink a great Ship.

Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead.

A Slip of the Foot you may soon recover, but a slip of the Tongue you man never get over.

Love your Neighbour; yet don’t pull down your Hedge.

Lost time is never found again.

The Sting of a Reproach is the Truth of it.

Glass, China, and Reputations, are easily crack’d, and never well mended.

He that can have patience can have what he will


“This would be a great time in the world for some man to come along that knew something.” ~Will Rogers
