"Take it from Richard, poor and lame,
what's begun in anger ends in shame."
"But in this world nothing can be said to certain, except death and taxes."
"Wish not so much to live long as to live well."
"To lengthen thy life, lessen thy meals."
"Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that's the stuff life is made of."
from Poor Richard's Almanac by Benjamin Franklin
I thought it was fitting on this election day to remember a founding father and great American author.
