It's all about the Benjamin (Franklin)


I laughed out loud (OK, I chuckled out loud) when I read this Benjamin Franklin quote tonight.

  • He that would live in peace and at ease, must not speak all he knows nor judge all he sees.

-- Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)


I laughed because (1) I've been telling myself for a couple of years now that I would like to live in peace and at ease, (2) I just started this weblog, which, if the quote is accurate, quite clearly offers me the means to fail to achieve said peace and ease, and (3) wise counsel I have received (and, candidly, paid for) encouraged me to stop precisely the manner of sharing in which I'm likely to indulge in this weblog. To date, I just can't help myself. But it's nice to be able to amuse oneself, isn't it? My consolation is that at least I'm now able to recognize that/when I'm drifting off course.

Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
