Benjamin Franklin once wrote that he had “conceived the bold and arduous project of arriving at moral perfection…[and] wished to live without committing any fault at any time…to conquer all that either natural inclination, custom, or company might lead me into.” Although he was never able to finish this project completely, Benjamin Franklin was able to lay down the beginnings of this work in his later writings. Collected here for the first time are essays by Benjamin Franklin on living a virtuous life. Starting with Franklin's essay “Art of Virtue,” read on to find out his thoughts on justice, moderation, chastity, and more. An easy-to-read guide to living your life with as much virtue as possible, the way Benjamin Franklin envisioned it could be.
