Ben Franklin - The Way to Wealth Book Review
This is a fun little book filled with wisdom from "Poor Richard". You will recognize some of the following:
There are no gains, without pains.
He that lives on hope will die fasting.
Little strokes fell great oaks.
A small leak will sink a great ship.
A ploughman on his legs is higher than a gentleman on his knees.
When the well's dry, they know the worth of water.
He that goes a borrowing goes a sorrowing.
Tis hard for an empty bag to stand upright.
Rather go to bed supperless than rise in debt.
The book above also has different writing by Ben Franklin, but you can just buy the small book called the Way to Wealth by itself. It is a quick read and is only about 30 pages long at the most. Most libraries should have it or have access to it.
I always like to read a book first before I decide to buy it or not.
