Tag: Ben Franklin quote

Flock of robins speak of Spring…

We are spirits That bodies should be lent to us while they afford us pleasure, assist us in acquiring knowledge, or in doing good to our fellow creatures – is a kind and benevolent act of God When they become unfit for these purposes, and afford us pain instead of pleasure, instead of an aid become an encumbrance and answer none of these intentions for which they were given – it is equally kind and benevolent that a way is provided by which we get rid of them, Death is that way. – Ben Franklin
