If you would not be forgotten
as soon as you are dead and rotten,
either write things worth reading,
or do things worth the writing.
On January 17, 1706 Benjamin Franklin was born in Boston. Philadelphia is known as his home. His gravesite and The Benjamin Franklin National Memorial are in Philly. He is remembered as a scientist, an inventor, a statesman, a printer, a philosopher, a musician and an economist and is honored as one of our Founding Fathers.
He not only wrote the quote above - he lived those words by writing as much as he possibly could and doing even more.
