Index | Spent in the Getting


Many estates are spent in the getting, Since women for tea forsook spinning and knitting, And men for punch forsook hewing and splitting.

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


“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.”
Isaiah 53:5
