once again, thank you wikipedia:
"Benjamin Franklin (January 17, 1706 – April 17, 1790) was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. A noted polymath, Franklin was a leading author, printer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, musician, inventor, satirist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat. As a scientist, he was a major figure in the American Enlightenment and the history of physics for his discoveries and theories regarding electricity. He invented the lightning rod, bifocals, the Franklin stove, a carriage odometer, and the glass 'armonica'. He facilitated many civic organizations, including a fire department and a university."

We've all seen the occasional gem quoted from Ben Franklin's first mega-hit, Poor Richard's Almanack. I wanted to see what else was in there and found that (at least in the ebook version) it was a very long series of aphorisms. Most of them were not memorable, which explains why we ever read only the best ones!
