Wise Advice From Ben Franklin

knowledge investmentRemember yesterday when I talked about math?  I got a little carried away with the length because it was so excited.  Buried deep down near the bottom of the post was a quote from Benjamin Franklin:

“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest”

I noticed this guy on the side of one of our buildings as I was walking to lunch today, and thought he was the perfect backdrop for Mr. Franklin’s words.

Do you know much about him?  He was a pretty cool guy.  Not only was he one of the founding fathers of the United States, but he was also a scientist, and inventor, postmaster, spy, and a number of other things – talk about a well-rounded guy!

As the high school year winds down, and the summer semester for college ramps up, lets keep investing in ourselves – we are our own biggest asset!
