In order for a relationship to be successful, both partners need to feel invested. This theory was proven by the one and only Benjamin Franklin, who stated that the more time, effort, or work you put towards a person, the more you're personally investing in them and the more you want it to work out.…
"The scuritest place is a prison cell, but no liberty" - Benjamin Franklin
A couple of hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. Never leave that ‘til tomorrow, he said, which you can do today. This is the man who discovered electricity. You’d think more people would listen to what he had to say. I don’t know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I’d have to say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you’re wrong? What if you’re making a mistake you can’t undo? The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can’t pretend we haven’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the *** poets urging us to seize the day. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug until . ...
”Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants.” -Benjamin Franklin
"A person convinced against their will, is of the same opinion still." -fortune cookie I guess Benjamin Franklin said it too, but that's where I got it.
Benjamin Franklin had a son who stood with england during the first revolution.. he held king george as his ally and never wanted america to be free. Benjamin Franklin never spoke to this son again.. they sent minimal letters to eachother but Franklin could never fully respect a man who did not cherish freedom. im getting to this point in my life.. if you dont stand for freedom.. if you dont support those who stand for freedom then you are my enemy. and my attitude toward you will show accordingly..
Benjamin Franklin said, “there will be plenty of time to sleep when you are dead “ life is for the living. So, wake up and perform any way… Good Morning Have a Nice Day….

Benjamin Franklin said that most humans die at 25 and are not buried until they're 75. Today, Dodge has assembled a band of sprightly centenarians to dispense some hard-won wisdom about what they've learned in a 100 years.
Looking Benjamin franklin in his eyes
One of the Founding Fathers of American, Benjamin Franklin died on this day in 1790. He invented the "Franklin Stove", which still bears his name in the modern versions of today. STOVE: an apparatus for cooking or heating. In those days rooms could only be heated with a fire in a fireplace. It had a hollow baffle near the rear (to transfer more heat from the fire to a room's air) and relied on an "inverted siphon" to draw the fire's hot fumes around the baffle. It was intended to produce more heat and less smoke than an ordinary open fireplace. It is also known as a "circulating stove" or the "Pennsylvania fireplace". The heat it generated spread out in all directions, and was also absorbed by the furnace's iron walls, so that the stove provided warmth even after the fire went out. It could also be used for cooking.

I will be pre-registering people tomorrow for vote by mail since tomorrow is the deadline for vote by mail. However, if I miss you please come in person to vote!.

with today being the anniversary of the death of Benjamin Franklin (4/17/1790) here is one of his writings - "I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer."

Ever wonder who developed bifocals? In the 1780s, Benjamin Franklin grew tired of having to switch between distance glasses and reading glasses, and developed a lens that blended the two. However, it wasn't until 1827 when London optician John Isaac Hawkins patented the term bifocals.

4.17.1790: Benjamin Franklin died. “His death was an affliction which was to happen to us at some time or other. We had reason to be thankful he was so long spared: that the most useful life should be the longest also: that it was protracted so far beyond the ordinary span allotted to man, as to avail us of his wisdom in the establishment of our own freedom, and to bless him with a view of it’s dawn in the east, where they seemed till now to have learned every thing, but how to be free.” —to Rev. William Smith on 2.19.1791
RETHINK 15 Poverty does not produce poverty. It's only poverty mentality that produces poverty. Your father's failure or poverty is not a gift of failure or poverty to you. Where you are coming from is not your problem. Abraham Lincoln was born in a farm one room cabin house. Benjamin Franklin had two years of schooling and dropped out at age 10 and yet, he was one of the American Founding Fathers, began first subscription library and founder of Pennsyvania university. Sam Walton started Wal-mart with $2000 he borrowed from his father in-law and $500 of his. Every great man scaled a fence. Your future can never be made by your pocket. Give that responsibility to your mind. No amount of money in your pocket will be superior to your mentality. The prodigal son ignored his mind and his pocket lost everything inside it. Until he came back to his mentality, he never knew his way back home. Start thinking and stop blaming. The mind is the king that rules our destiny. God has something in there for you.-'As a ma ...

Are you GOAL SETTING? Harvard Business School researchers have taken a vital interest in what makes the difference in success or failure for people of similar backgrounds and educational standards. Their studies find that 3% of people are successful, 30% are moderately successful and 67% just exist. The significant difference for the 3% who are successful is that they have written down, specific goals. The 30% who are moderately successful have a general idea of where they are going but don't have any goals formalised. The rest are happy to watch the world go by. What is interesting is that people in the 30% category only need to put in a small effort to jump into the next group. The secret behind the effort is 'the development of habits and strategies which support the achievement of clear goals'. Benjamin Franklin discovered this secret the hard way. He was receiving constant criticism about his negative communication. He listed all the elements in his life that he had the courage to say did not support ...

Take the time to be crystal-clear in your communications with others.” — Brian Tracy “The goal of effective communication should be for listeners to say, ‘Me, too!’ versus ‘So what?’” — Jim Rohn “There are four ways, and only four ways, in which we have contact with the world. We are evaluated and classified by these four contacts: what we do, how we look, what we say, and how we say it.” — Dale Carnegie

RIP Mickey Rooney. My memories of Mickey--1972, while traveling with Lionel Hampton From my book: We played Mickey Rooney’s Downingtown Inn again. Unlike our first visit, Rooney was there that night and engaged us all in happy banter before we went on stage and he introduced us. Rooney was a little plumper and much shorter than I imagined (5’ 3”), barely coming up to my chest. He sported a long haircut, which, like Milt Buckner, made him look like a jolly diminutive Benjamin Franklin. Since he started in Vaudeville at 17 months, Rooney, now 51, was going to celebrate his golden anniversary in show business in 1972. Rooney was already a veteran movie actor by 1925. After a chance meeting that year with the five-year-old Rooney, Walt Disney named Mickey Mouse after him. During the 1930s, Rooney made more than five movies a year. By the 1940s, he was a top-rated star in comedies and dramas. By 1972, Mickey Rooney (real name Joe Yule, Jr.) had been married seven times. (The eighth time was the charm.) H ...

Homeschooling Revelation of today ... This morning Jimmy and I studied interesting facts about our home state of Massachusetts. Knowing his interest in entertainers and celebrities I guided him through a Google search of famous people born in Massachusetts and I was surprised to learn the following people were born here. - George H. W. Bush (Sr.) was born in Milton, MA (Who knew? I KNEW he was from Texas) - Benjamin Franklin was born in Boston (Thought he was born in Pennsylvania DUH!) - I knew entertainers Eliza Dushku, Donna Summer, Bobby Brown, John Cena, the Wahlbergs and Matt Damon were born in Massachusetts, but there are a slew of well known entertainers (at least I know them) that I didn't know were born in Massachusetts.

Americans are asleep, they're like Egyptian slaves, given beer and bread to keep them verbally neutered and contempt with their worthless lives. our current generation haven't even learn baby steps when compared to our grandparents political activism during the years of civil right revolution & Vietnam. "Politics is far too important to be left to the politicians" Ed Miliband ... but who cares about sacrificing liberty over security as Benjamin Franklin once so eloquently put, . assassination of US citizens, sending children of America to war needlessly, proposing laws that take our civil rights away would have send any politician into hiding a century ago... that is the power of the masses we no longer have. We need to speak our minds and exercise our rights before we lose them
The phrase "God helps those who help themselves" is a popular motto that emphasizes the importance of initiative. The phrase originated in ancient Greece and may originally have been proverbial. It is illustrated by two of Aesop's Fables and a similar sentiment is found in ancient Greek drama. Although it has been commonly attributed to Benjamin Franklin, the modern English wording appears earlier in Algernon Sidney's work. The phrase is often mistaken as scriptural, but it appears nowhere in the Bible. Some Christians have criticized the expression as being contrary to the Bible's message of God's grace. A variant of the phrase, however, can be found in the Quran (13:11). Wikipedia
The last two presidents: war criminals, deviates of the constitution and bastions of rapacity have regurgitated the country once known as the United States into a moribund dystopia. It's claimed great leaders come once every hundred years or so. Here spoke a few: Man will ultimately be governed by God or by tyrants. Benjamin Franklin "If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." Samuel Adams America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. We the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts–not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution. Abraham Lincoln The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing but newspapers. Thomas Jefferson

Overhauling Healthcare is a huge complex undertaking….. Any fool can get up and make wishful statements, “This year our team will be “This company will be the top in our market!” “We will clean this city up!” “Lets find a cure for this terrible illness!” But there are very few people that actual can lead a company, community and get results. In the business world they are very well paid CEO’s and visionaries. History has shown us a few great leaders that have ability to change the world they live in. Martin Luther King, Steve Jobs, Henry Ford, John F. Kennedy, Galileo Galilei , Benjamin Franklin, Ronald Regan. At the moment we have a leader that has no idea what it takes to get it done, He has good ideas. The only difference between our President and the visionaries in the “Occupy tent encampments” is 17 billion of our dollars!!

History of the Rothschild Family   In 1789 Alexander Hamilton became the first Treasury Secretary of the United States. Hamilton was one of many Founding Fathers who were Freemasons. He had close relations with the Rothschild family which owns the Bank of England and leads the European Freemason movement. George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, Ethan Allen, Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, John Brown and Roger Sherman were all Masons. Roger Livingston helped Sherman and Franklin write the Declaration of Independence. He gave George Washington his oaths of office while he was Grand Master of the New York Grand Lodge of Freemasons. Washington himself was Grand Master of the Virginia Lodge. Of the General Officers in the Revolutionary Army, thirty-three were Masons. This was highly symbolic since 33rd Degree Masons become Illuminated.

Benjamin Franklin was a member of the Hellfire Club in order to make connections with all the right people. and though that was a sex club instead of pagan worship (supposedly) in proves the strange things the rich and powerful do behind closed doors.

Benjamin Franklin, Silas Deane and Arthur Lee present themselves to France's King Louis XVI as official representatives of the United States on this day in 1778. Louis XVI was skeptical of the fledgling republic, but his dislike of the British eventually overcame these concerns and France officially recognized the United States in February 1778. Some of the great ironies of the American Revolution lay in the relationship between the new United States and the French. In 1774, when Parliament decided to offer religious toleration and judicial autonomy to French-speaking Catholics in Quebec, North American colonists expressed horror at the notion of empowered French Catholics on their borders. In 1778, though, Franklin, Deane and Lee, all proponents of democratic government, were delighted at the prospect that the French Catholic monarchy, ruling by divine right, would come to their aid in a war against British parliamentary rule. As for the French, they had recently been dealt a humiliating defeat in the Se ...

After the demise of Belgrade, the post office, discontinued about 1936, was moved to Upper Belgrade. McFarland Lewis moved to Orange County during the 1850's and settled west of Orange. His name, though corrupted in spelling, is remembered in the McLewis (sic) community and school. Benjamin Franklin (B.F.) Jones reached Bevil's settlement in 1831. A native of Georgia, he had lived for a number of years in Mississippi where he met and married Letitia Guthrie. His league, where he lived, is located east of Jasper and John Bevil's grant.

OUR DEPENDABLE FATHER Jesus said in Matthew 10:29-31, “Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father's will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” The Lord has shown us in these verses that our Heavenly Father is still in control of His world. There is not anything that happens which He is not aware of. More than 200 years ago, Benjamin Franklin stood before the Constitutional Convention and said, “I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live the more convincing proof I see of this truth: that God governs the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall without His notice, is it possible that an empire can rise without His aid?” In this conversation, Franklin was referring to the above statement made by Jesus. The longer we live, the more we should be convinced that God still rules in the affairs of men, to accomplish His purposes. Throughout the Scripture ...

On March 20th in American history: 1760 — The dreaded cry of "Fire!" roused sleeping Bostonians. Over the next ten hours, the worst fire to strike a colonial American city ravaged the capital of Massachusetts. Beginning in a tavern near the central market, the wind-whipped blaze spread quickly. The flames consumed shops and homes along King and Congress Streets and continued down to the wharves, where ten ships were left in ashes. Faced with staggering losses, Boston sought aid from the King and Parliament. While other colonies took up charitable collections for the city, the British government refused to help. Some historians have suggested that the Crown's indifference to Bostonians' plight after the Great Fire of 1760 was an early spur to the spirit of rebellion. 1776 — General Clinton informed Georgia Governor Wright that he could not protect loyalists in the province. 1777 — WILLIAMSBURG.

If You Were Arrested for Kindness by Michael Josephson (841.1) If you were arrested for kindness, would there be enough evidence to convict you? Some people cheer up a room by entering it, others by leaving it. What do you bring to your interactions with work-mates, friends, and family? Is it encouragement, optimism, or kind words? Or is it pessimism, criticism, or cynicism? People often forget what we say and usually what we do, but as Maya Angelou said, "They always remember how we made them feel." Here are some other wise words about kindness: "Wise sayings often fall on barren ground, but a kind word is never thrown away." – Sir Arthur Helps "You will regret many things in life, but you will never regret being too kind or too fair." – Brian Tracy "Don't wait for people to be kind. Show them how." – Anonymous "The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention." – Oscar Wilde "That best portion of a good man's life: his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of ...

22 Things Happy People Do Differently There are two types of people in the world: those who choose to be happy, and those who choose to be unhappy. Contrary to popular belief, happiness doesn’t come from fame, fortune, other people, or material possessions. Rather, it comes from within. The richest person in the world could be miserable while a homeless person could be right outside, smiling and content with their life. Happy people are happy because they make themselves happy. They maintain a positive outlook on life and remain at peace with themselves. The question is: how do they do that? It’s quite simple. Happy people have good habits that enhance their lives. They do things differently. Ask any happy person, and they will tell you that they … 1. Don’t hold grudges. Happy people understand that it’s better to forgive and forget than to let their negative feelings crowd out their positive feelings. Holding a grudge has a lot of detrimental effects on your wellbeing, including increased depre ...

Persistence "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

IV's one year old birthday is approaching in April and I am having so much fun being included in on the party plans. I am pretty sure he will be walking by his first birthday. While keeping him yesterday, I watched him over and over again hold on and maneuver around our coffee table. Then he would sit down and take off crawling to the fireplace, stand up and then side step all the while holding on and making his way around to the dog bed. He would turn and think about letting go but instead would sit down and crawl again. I kept my phone in my hand in case h ...

On This Day in History, March 20 ... According to scholars at the University of Paris, the Black Death is created on this day in 1345, from what they call "a triple conjunction of Saturn, Jupiter and Mars in the 40th degree of Aquarius, occurring on the 20th of March 1345". The Black Death, also known as the Plague, swept across Europe, the Middle East and Asia during the 14th century, leaving an estimated 25 million dead in its wake. Despite what these scholars claimed, it is now known that bubonic plague, the most common ailment known as the Black Death, is caused by the yersinia pestis bacterium. The plague was carried by fleas that usually traveled on rats, but jumped off to other mammals when the rat died. It most likely first appeared in humans in Mongolia around 1320. Usually, people who came down with the plague first complained of headaches, fever and chills. Their tongues often appeared a whitish color before there was severe swelling of the lymph nodes. Finally, black and purple spots appeared ...
My recent prayer walking occurred in Philadelphia. This city is chocked full of govern mental firsts. I was so surprised when I discovered I was within walking distance of a bridge I saw in the distance driving into the city the previous day. And yes I prayer walked it! Thank you Jesus for showing me another interstate bridge, The Benjamin Franklin Bridge connects PA and New Jersey. Though I did not get a picture of the huge lantern style lights flanking the bridge walkway or the numerous lamps and lamp stands along the brigade walkway, it was certainly engraved upon my spirit. I get the sense that the Benjamin Franklin is a lamppost bridge though, I do not know what that could mean.

50 more of the most important English proverbs. Proverbs are wise sayings that are remembered and repeated. The ones below are so popular that you will often hear them in daily conversation. If you're trying to learn English, it would be a great idea to memorize these proverbs. By memorizing them, you will not only learn some common English sayings; you will also help your brain to become better at forming good English sentences. So here are 50 more awesome sayings that English speakers use: 1. "A broken clock is right twice a day." When an old clock stops working, it shows one specific time but doesn't move.

"A friend in need is a friend indeed." If someone helps you when you're in trouble, that person is a true friend. 3. "A little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing."

No one person is given any more time in a day than another, nor does anyone get any less. The only thing that differs is how many days we are given as a whole. We must make it a goal in each day to better manage the time given to us to get done all that needs to. This is not limited to housework and job related "things".

A small leak can sink a great ship - Benjamin Franklin ~
signingcon.jpg A reproduction of a painting of George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and others signing the U.S. Constitution in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. (Library of Congress) The Constitution is clear: it is the role of Congress to make all laws, the Judiciary to interpret the laws, and the President to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” This system was wisely set into place by our country’s framers because they saw the effects of executive overreach by the crown in England and designed the Constitution to avoid concentrating power in one leader or one branch of government. The framers knew first hand that the concentration of power in the same hands was a threat to individual liberty and the rule of law. The Constitution grants Congress, not the president, the power to make legislative decisions. Unfortunately, as prominent law professor Jonathan Turley – who stated in his testimony that he voted for President Obama – observed at a recent House Judiciary Committee hearing, the ...

When asked to relate the results of the Constitutional Convention of 1789 to a citizen as he left Independence Hall, Benjamin Franklin is reported to have replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” As the annual Conservative Political Action Conference ended last weekend, one might reply similarly t...
Spiritual Lessons From America's History While reading historian, William Bennett's excellent book, "Our Sacred Honor," I discovered a multitude of lessons that are applicable to members of churches of Christ in the 21st century. Consider the following words of wisdom. • At the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, a Mrs. Powell asked Benjamin Franklin, "Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" Franklin replied, "A republic, if you can keep it" (p. 15). Our fathers in the faith delivered into our hands a restored church. The question is are willing and able to preserve it? It was almost swept away in the apostasy of the last half of th 19th century. It is in grave danger at this very hour. Satan labors incessantly to transform the church into something other than the spiritual kingdom of Christ (Matt. 16:16-18). • "Only a people possessing the right dispositions and mores, and strong but tempered religious beliefs, would be able to keep what the Founders had bequeathe . ...
Some famous quotes on ASTROLOGY : "Astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity." Carl G. Jung, founder of analytical psychology. "Millionaires don't use astrology, billionaires do." “ Anyone can be a millionaire, but to become a billionaire you need an astrologer.” - JP Morgan, America's first billionaire "Courteous Reader, Astrology is one of the most ancient of Sciences, held in high esteem of old, by the Wise & the Great. Formerly no Prince, would make War or Peace, nor any General fight in battle, in short, no important affair was undertaken without first consulting an Astrologer." - Benjamin Franklin "Astrology is a science in itself and contains an illuminating body of knowledge. It has taught me many things and I am greatly in debt to it." - Albert Einstein “ It's common knowledge that a large percentage of Wall Street brokers use astrology.” - Donald Regan “ A most unfailing experience... of the excitement of sublunary (that is, human) natures by th ...

"As postmaster general under the Continental Congress in 1773, Benjamin Franklin helped leak letters from American officials who were collaborating with the British crown. And in more recent times, whistleblowers have alerted us to such secrets as the Nixon Watergate break-in and enemies list, J. Edgar Hoover's dirty tricks campaign against civil rights activists and Vietnam War protestors, the Bush-Cheney WMD scam and Obama's secret drone wars." - From The Hightower Lowdown, February/March 2014 Edward Snowden is obviously in good company and deserving of sincere thanks for opening our eyes to the truth.
The Battle of Chamkaur (Guru Gobind Singh vs Aurangzeb's Mughal forces) happened in 1704; only 2 years before THE Benjamin Franklin's birth
The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is a knowledge of our own ignorance. -Benjamin Franklin
Stephen Trussell Last night, around 2 am., I turned on the TV and clicked on every (so-called) Christian station that is broadcast in our area, Dallas Tx. It's a large market, so there are quite a few of them. I'll just name a few. TBN, God TV, Daystar, Angel 1 & 2, Impact, Church Channel, and so on. I won't name every show that was on at 2 am., but I will say this, I saw NOTHING but false prophets, money-grabbing heretics, and 'scam artists'. In other words,,,I smelled a lot of DEAD FLIES! "Dead flies PUTREFY the perfumer’s ointment, And cause it to give off a FOUL ODOR.." Ecc.10:1 Oh, there's was 'plenty' of 'planning' going on! There were lots of 'promises' up for sale! There were lots of 'vows' being made, if you would make a 'pledge'! There were plenty of 'harvest' prayer lines 'open'; if you were willing to 'sow' a 'seed' of 'faith' into their 'field' of 'falsehood'. And, of course that 'faith' needed to have the 'face' of Benjamin Franklin on it! The Bare-Naked Gospel that hung upon the cross for ...
As we are all adjusting to the recent time change, I thought it would be nice to share some fun facts about Daylight Savings Time. *It's actually Saving not Savings. *Hawaii and Arizona do not observe it. *Benjamin Franklin was the first to advocate for DST in 1784. *DST is always initiated at 2:00 a.m., not midnight, to eliminate disruption. *Many local fire departments encourage you to use DST as a reminder to change, or charge, batteries in your smoke detectors. All Amtrak trains running at 2:00 a.m. come to a stop for a full hour. *The sun also sets later, so we can all enjoy the extra hours of sunshine during the warmer seasons! I hope that your year is off to a great start. Sincerely, Eric Kimble Mortgage Suppliers eric

It is not that money is buying the politician.. It is that money is buying your vote... It is not the PARTY affiliation that will destroy America...

They succeeded in reduc ...

The concept of daylight saving time (DST) which is also referred to as “summer time”, was first introduced by Benjamin Franklin in 1784, and is now observed by many countries. It has also become a major annual debate amongst many countries.
Communism is like Benjamin Franklin, because I like it a lot more on paper.
The idea of daylight saving time was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin as a way to diminish the cost of light by burning fewer candles. Without searching the internet, do you think this is TRUE or FALSE?
