This is the fifth 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:
“A free and virtuous America will help diminish bad governments elsewhere.
Debt gives others power over you.
Goodness is a prerequisite for greatness.
Goodness prevails over hatred.
Do good to others for the goodness you have received.
Virtue and liberty are more valuable than wealth and power.
Do only actions you would not be ashamed of if known by others.”
