Index | Toil from Ease


Trouble springs from idleness and grevious toil from needless ease.

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


“If God give thee not only earth but heaven, that thou shouldest rule over sun, moon, and stars, and have rule over the highest of the sons of men, it would not be enough to satisfy thee, except thou hadst God himself.”
–Jeremiah Burroughs, The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment
