Happy Birthday, Benjamin Franklin! Born today in 1706.

The quote in the image below is one of our favorites, and quite relevant for today. It was first written by Franklin for the Pennsylvania Assembly in its Reply to the Governor (11 Nov. 1755)

A little-known fact – Franklin was a member of the “Committee of Five” that drafted the Declaration of Independence. Although he was temporarily disabled by gout and not able to attend most meetings of the Committee, he made several “small but important” changes to the draft sent to him by Thomas Jefferson.
