Index | A Loud Beggar


Pride is as loud a beggar as want, and a great deal more saucy.

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


“Two things are necessary to the life of pure faith. The first is, that we behold God alone, under all the imperfect coverings that conceal him; the second is, constantly to have our souls kept in a state of dependence.”
Fenelon
