Benjamin Franklin Quotes for the New Economy

-"Honesty is the best policy, unless you want to get exorbitantly rich in which case your policy should include a healthy dose of dishonesty."
-"He that waits upon fortune, is never sure a dinner. So if you’re hungry, you’d better get moving. That Ponzi scheme isn't going to start itself."
-"Certainty? In this world nothing is certain but death and finding creative ways to underpay taxes."
-"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest. Plus you got laid off so grad school probably makes sense for you right now."
-"Judging by my 401k, a penny saved is basically nothing."
