Visiting - Warning Signs
Show subject index
Always an up-to-date mentor, Franklin’s insights fit right into the soundbites you see here. But why stop here? For a Niagara of wit and understanding in
the wonderful words from Ben's own works, get to a search engine
try: Franklin + “Poor Richard.” You might add “1758” -- or just click here
. The 1758 preface features some favorite sayings. ( Oh, parents, those
"Poor Richard's" websites can get raucous.)
|Visit your Aunt, but not
every Day; and call at
your Brother's, but not
every night. 
|Come to stay -
|Ill Company is like a dog who dirts those most, that he loves most. ||Featherhead guest
(Nicely) fouls nest.
|If you'd lose a troublesome Visitor, lend him Money. ||"Loan is it?
Here tis it."
|Friendship increases by
visiting Friends, but by
visiting seldom. 
|Little Rogues easily become
great Ones. 
|Mean little Pig
Pigs out...gets big.
|He that carries a small Crime easily, will carry it on when it comes to be an Ox. ||Little illicit habits
Thrive like complicit rabbits.
