I was lucky enough to be in a study group that read about Mr. Franklin. Now there was a guy filled with information. What he had to know to write Poor Richard's Almanac was astounding, but he was also an international diplomat for decades, a businessman, and an inventor. How nice to have the freedom to keep saying "What if?" and "I wonder?" and how amazing to have the courage to go find answers all of one's life. Very cool.
And from another intellect, this adjunction: Read a book.
