The wisdom of Benjamin Franklin (part 8)

"We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid."
Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

My trusted personal advisor reminds me that old Ben had an acerbic side. 

Franklin served in various government roles, so obviously he tolerated fools to some extent. His epigram above suggests he did not do so gladly….

It's a reminder that we must continue to learn through life….the "stupid" disease can be a recurring ailment…
