“A penny saved is a penny earned.”

– Benjamin Franklin

 
Leave it to Benjamin Franklin to give us the soundest of financial advice. Armed with the practical and self-restrained virtues of Puritanism with the imagination, tolerance, and ambition of the Enlightenment, Ben Franklin was a successful politician and political theorist as well as a brilliant scientist who first harnessed the power of lightening to create electricity (ever heard of it?). He extolled the virtues of practical living, thrift, hard work, community responsibility, and education. When Ben Franklin says, “a penny saved is a penny earned”, this is a lesson we can take to heart and as relevant in our day-to-day life as, say, electricity.
