Benjamin Franklin

"Empty the coins of your purse into your mind and your mind will fill your purse with gold"
Benjamin Franklin
He is one of my favorite fathers of our nation. When I was young my family visited a museum and we saw everything that had been his, such as his porcelain bowl that his wife gave him. I was especially impressed that he invented the library, fire station, and the difficult to counterfeit dollar bill.
I also loved how he wanted to improve his life; he would set goals and little sayings to live by.
So I read his biography (a HUGE book) and I was so impressed by his ability to relate to people and negotiate.
