13 Virtues of Benjamin Franklin

After hearing about these 13 Virtues of Benjamin Franklin, it made me wonder I felt was important in how I acted or thought of my self or even excepted of others.

Temperance:Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation

Silence:Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversations

Order:Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time

Resolution:Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve

Frugality:Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; that is, waste nothing

Industry:Lose not time; be always employed in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions

Sincerity:Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly; speak accordingly

Justice:Wrong none by doing injuries or omitting the benefits that are your duty

Moderation:Avoid extremes; forbear resenting injuries so much as you think you deserve

Cleanliness:Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, clothes or habitation

Tranquility:Be not disturbed at trifles or accidents common or unavoidable

Chastity:Rarely use venery but for health or offspring; never to dullness, weakness, or the injury of your own or another's peace or reputation

Humility:Imitate Jesus and Socrates
