Rather go to bed supperless than rise in debt.
A penny saved is a penny earned.
Those willing to give up a little liberty for a little security deserve neither security nor liberty
Well done is better than well said
Experience runs an expensive school, but fools will learn in no other.
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote
We'll all hang together or surely we'll hang separately Benjamin Franklin
When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the Republic. Benjamin Franklin
Even peace may be purchased at too high a price Benjamin Franklin
He that is good at making excuses is seldom good for anything else. Benjamin Franklin
