QUOTABLES: Ben Franklin’s Epitaph

“The body of Benjamin Franklin, printer, like the cover an old book, its contents torn out and stripped of its lettering and gilding, lies here, food for the worms. But the work shall not be lost; for it will, as he believed, appear once more in a new and more elegant edition, revised and corrected by the Author.”

~Ben Franklin, Epitaph on himself
