Half A Dozen Ponder Points From Poor Richard

These Ponder Points came from Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanac written in 1734. Seems to me that they are as true today as then.

Where there's Marriage without Love, there will be Love without Marriage.

Lawyers, Preachers, and Tomtits Eggs, there are more of them hatch'd than come to perfection.

Don't value a man for the Quality he is of, but for the Qualities he possesses.

He that cannot obey, cannot command.

He that is rich need not live sparingly, and he that can live sparingly need not be rich.

Would you live with ease, Do what you ought, and not what you please.
