LILY CELEBRATES BEN
January 17, 1706 – April 17, 1790
Benjamin Franklin was one of the most multi-faceted men of all time. This Founding Father was a patriot, author, printer, satirist, inventor, scientist, innovator, statesman and diplomat. Among his inventions were bifocals, the lightning rod and Franklin stove; among his accomplishments were forming the first fire department in Pennsylvania and the first lending library. And he was known to have played the harp, violin and guitar. He espoused the values of thrift, hard work, education, equality and community spirit.
In Poor Richard’s Almanack, writing under the pseudonym of Richard Saunders, Ben could have been speaking of his own life when he said,
“Wish not so much to live long as to live well.”
Benjamin Franklin strove to live by a set of Thirteen Virtues which he developed at age 20. His biography lists them as Temperance, Silence, Order, Resolution, Frugality, Industry, Sincerity, Justice, Moderation, Cleanliness, Tranquility, Chastity and Humility. He had a quote for each one; perhaps the best known is “A penny saved is a two pence dear”, usually translated today as
“A penny saved is a penny earned.”
