Σελίδα 331 - THE BODY of BENJAMIN FRANKLIN, Printer, (like the cover of an old book, its contents torn out, and stript of its lettering and gilding) lies here food for worms ; yet the work itself shall not be lost, for it will (as he believed) appear once more in a new and more beautiful edition, corrected and amended by THE AUTHOR.
Σελίδα 338 - And these all, having obtained a good report through faith received not the promise, God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.
Σελίδα 309 - Good,' which I think was written by your father. It had been so little regarded by a former possessor, that several leaves of it were torn out ; but the remainder gave me such a turn of thinking, as to have an influence on my conduct through life ; for I have always set a greater value on the character of a doer of good than any other kind of reputation ; and if I have been, as you seem to think, a useful citizen, the public owes the advantage of it to that book.
Σελίδα 306 - In a little time I made great proficiency in the business, and became a useful hand to my brother. I now had access to better books. An acquaintance with the apprentices of booksellers enabled me sometimes to borrow a small one, which I was careful to return soon and clean.
Σελίδα 339 - Whereas, several papers have been read relating to the keeping and bringing in of negroes ; which being duly considered, it is the advice of this meeting that Friends be careful not to encourage the bringing in of any more negroes ; and that such that have negroes, be careful of them, bring them to meetings, have meetings with them in their families, and restrain them from loose and lewd living as much as in them lies, and from rambling abroad on First-days or other times.
Σελίδα 348 - Rule, that commands us to do to others as we would that others should do to us...
Σελίδα 59 - And thou, Philadelphia, the virgin settlement of this province, named before thou wert born, what love, what care, what service, and what travail, has there been to bring thee forth and preserve thee from such as would abuse and defile thee...
Σελίδα 299 - I am for peace and not for war, And that's the reason why 1 write more plain than some men do, That use to daub and lie. But I shall cease, and set my name To what I here insert. Because to be a libeler I hate it with my heart.
Σελίδα 331 - ... no; don't go away. These pains will soon be over. They are for my good; and, besides, what are the pains of a moment in comparison with the pleasures of eternity ?" He had a picture of Christ on the cross placed so that he could conveniently look at it as he lay in bed. " That," he would say, " is the picture of one who came into the world to teach men to love one another...
Σελίδα 150 - Be it remembered, In honour of the Philadelphia youth, (then chiefly artificers) that in MDCCCXXXI, they cheerfully, at the instance of Benjamin Franklin, one of their number, instituted the Philadelphia Library, which, though small at first, is become highly valuable, and extensively useful, and which the walls of this edifice are now destined to contain and preserve; the first stone of whose foundation was here placed the thirty-first day of August, 1789.
