Timeless Advice

Benjamin Franklin’s 13 virtues for personal improvement.

 “TEMPERANCE~ Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation.”
“SILENCE~ Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.”
“ORDER~ Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time.”
“RESOLUTION~ Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve.”
“FRUGALITY~ Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e., waste nothing.”
“INDUSTRY~ Lose no time; be always employ’d in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.”
“SINCERITY~ Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and, if you speak, speak accordingly.”
“JUSTICE~ Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty.”
“MODERATION~ Avoid extremes; forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve.”
“CLEANLINESS~ Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, cloaths, or habitation.”
“TRANQUILLITY~ Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable.”
“CHASTITY~ Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dullness, weakness, or the injury of your own or another’s peace or reputation.”
“HUMILITY~ Imitate Jesus and Socrates.”
