A Few Wise Words From Old Franklin

On the subject of spending, it's interesting to note what Benjamin Franklin
thought of the topic. Of course, it was written in his earlier years, he was much more liberal with his money later on.

You may think, perhaps, that a little tea, or a little punch now and then, diet a little more costly, clothes a little finer, and a little more entertainment now and then can be no great matter but remember what Poor Richard says "Many a little
makes a mickle; beware of little expense for a small leak will sink a great ship."
- Benjamin Franklin-

A child and a fool imagine twenty shillings
and twenty years can never be spent.
-Benjamin Franklin-
