After you have completed the readings for Benjamin Franklin, consider the aphorisms we read tonight in the excerpt of Poor Richard’s Almanack on pp. 134-335 in our textbook.

1.  Choose three aphorisms that stood out to you and relate why/how you relate to these sayings. 

2.  Share your ideas in a paragraph of 8-10 sentences.
