The Wisdom of a Statesman

From Benjamin Franklin’s Way to Wealth, sayings collected from Poor Richard’s Almanack were displayed on children’s cups in the early 19th century.  People found Dr. Franklin’s wisdom an appropriate accompaniment to the gift of a porcelain mug for their children.

Now, we have a president who preaches that personal industry is a myth and our only responsibility is to the state which gave us everything.
