Benjamin Franklin- Continual Inspiration

We have all read about great leaders but one springs to mind and that is Benjamin Franklin. He was undoubtedly a man of action who seemed to have insatiable curiosity: A writer, diplomat, inventor and President of the United States.
I was in need of inspiration recently and found the following quotes that got the spring back in my step:

“Well done is better than well said.”

“Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today.”

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

“When you’re finished changing, you’re finished.”

“All mankind is divided into three classes: those that are immovable, those that are movable, and those that move.”

“Never confuse motion with action.”

“Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.”

“To succeed, jump as quickly at opportunities as you do at conclusions.”

“Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.”

“Diligence is the mother of good luck.”

“There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond, and to know one’s self.”

Who had deceived thee so often as thyself?”

“Energy and persistence conquer all things.”

“Life’s tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.”

I hope these will get you thinking and make sure you make the most out of every new day!
