What if I tell you that you’ve watched Benjamin Franklin your entire life but hardly noticed him? You have seen him every day on 100-dollar bills and used his inventions like electricity and lightning rod. You must have used phrases like “no pain no gain” or “Honesty is the best policy” without knowing they were his. But no one knows Benjamin who crossed the river of poverty as a child the stains of which reflected later in his work. No one knows his journey from starving for basic education to contributing great pieces of works in American literature. To get to know this master of all trades, we have picked up some of the most heartwarming and impactful Quotes by Ben Franklin.

These quotes by Ben Franklin are just a small fraction of his wisdom and intellect which you need to read at least once in your lifetime.
