Benjamin Franklin’s virtues

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

As he records in his autobiography, Benjamin Franklin “conceiv’d the bold and arduous Project of arriving at moral Perfection.” He wrote a catalog of 13 moral virtues, and he drew a graph on which he scored his successes and failures each day. Here are the first four:

1. “Temperance. Eat not to Dulness. Drink not to Elevation.”

2. “Silence. Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself. Avoid trifling Conversation.”

3. “Order. Let all your Things have their Places. Let each Part of your Business have its Time.”

4. “Resolution. Resolve to perform what you ought. Perform without fail what you resolve.”
