''Well done is better than well said.'' ''What you would seem to be, be really.'' ''A true Friend is the best Possession.'' The wise sayings within this little volume were selected from a number of editions of Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack. Of course, not all the sayings here are original with old Ben, for he included in his Almanack proverbs from other sources -- but he usually gave them a flavor all his own.
