Presentation Transcript

  1. Benjamin Franklin’s 13 Virtues

  2. Temperance: Eat not to dullness. Drink not to elevation.

  3. Silence: Speak not but what may benefit others or yourself. Avoid trifling conversation.

  4. Order: Let all your things have their places. Let each part of your business have its time.

  5. Resolution: Resolve to perform what you ought. Perform without fail what you resolve.

  6. Frugality: Make no expense but to do good to others or yourself; i.e., waste nothing.

  7. Industry: Lose no time. Be always employed in something useful. Cut off all unnecessary actions.

  8. Sincerity: Use no hurtful deceit. Think innocently and justly; and if you speak, speak accordingly.

  9. Justice: Wrong none by doing injuries or omitting the benefits that are your duty.

  10. Moderation: Avoid extremes. Forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve.

  11. Cleanliness: Tolerate no uncleanness in body, clothes or habitation.

  12. Tranquility: Be not disturbed at trifles or at accidents common or unavoidable.

  13. Chastity: Rarely use venery but for health or offspring – never to dullness, weakness or the injury of your own or another’s peace or reputation.

  14. Humility: Imitate Jesus and Socrates
