I have decided to run a quote day every week until Christmas. Tuesday is one of those neither here nor there days (too far away from last weekend, not near enough to next weekend), so it makes an ideal quote day. So, Christmas is 13 weeks away (yes, really), so I have 13 quotes to share with you…:)

Let’s start off with one of my favorite quotes by the great Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790):

“What good shall I do this day?”

Benjamin Franklin

A good first choice, Franklin was known as The First American for his fearless campaigns for colonial unity. He was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, and was an inventor, scientist, statesman, politician, leading author and a Freemason to boot.

His inventions included – bifocal glasses; the urinary catheter; and the Franklin stove. He was also a leading figure in the discovery of electricity (see image).Wikipedia

A very gifted individual, who quite rightly deserves first quote day πŸ™‚
