“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.”
Benjamin Franklin was born on January 17, 1706 in Boston Massachusetts. Franklin was known as a scientist, inventor, and writer. More importantly, Benjamin Franklin was one of the Founding Fathers. Franklin was a man of many accomplishments, such as drafting the Declaration of Independence, creating the first political cartoon in the United States, inventing things like bifocals, and much more. Franklin was also well known for the American proverb, “Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” Sadly, the well-known and brilliant man later died on April 17, 1790 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Analysis: The quote can be interpreted in many different ways, but from what I gather, Franklin was discussing the need for success. Success is not necessarily something that comes in the form of money, but instead fulfillment and contentment. To reach such success, you must make intelligent and well thought-out decisions. As Franklin says in the second half of the quote, when you make painstaking and difficult decisions with much consideration, you are known as successful because you are content with your actions.
