Index | A Butterfly Drest


What is a butterfly? He's but a caterpillar drest, The gaudy fop's his picture just.

Thoughts by Benjamin Franklin from Poor Richard's Almanac, or from his letters, on life and prosperity.


“Are you dejected? here is comfort. Are you sinful? here is righteousness. Are you led away with present enjoyments? here you have honours, and pleasures, and all in Christ Jesus. You have a right to common pleasures that others have, and besides them you have interest in others that are everlasting, that shall never fail; so that there is nothing that is dejecting and abasing in man, but there is comfort for it in Christ Jesus.”
–Richard Sibbes, Description of Christ
