Famous Sayings of Benjamin Franklin
“Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.” “We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.” “A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle.” “There is no kind of dishonesty into which otherwise good people more easily and frequently fall than that of defrauding the government.”
