This is the fourth of five posts that recap Franklin’s wisdom for us as we enter the election season.
The Goodness Party has highlighted 33 quotes from Benjamin Franklin over the past five weeks. Each quote has been introduced with Benjamin Franklin’s wisdom for US (each of us and the United States) and Benjamin Franklin’s call to action for US.
We should all heed Franklin’s wisdom, learn from them, and apply them.
Wisdom for US on image:
“Doing good is a responsibility we have to others.
Despotism is good for no one.
Doing good to others is the most desired praise to God.
Honor is lost when a mistake, once known, is not corrected.
Doing good is good for you.
Virtue is best obtained by learning it in youth.
The bashing of other political parties is nothing new—though distasteful, not always true, and not from a place of goodness.”
