I enjoyed this Ben Franklin piece the most even though it was probably the dullest read. I found his list of virtues to be the most interesting and important part of his writing. He lists; temperance, silence, order, resolution, frugality, industry, sincerity, justice, moderation, cleanliness, tranquility, chastity, and humility as the virtues one should live by. The point of this article of writing is that being a positive person and following all of these virtues will lead to sucess and happiness. I found his point to be very interesting and I would agree with Ben fully. He really took a scientific approach to every day life and it also mentioned that he recorded all of his data on virtues every day for a year. This piece might make people think about their actions throughout the day every day. The only people this piece might offend are people who are infatuated with their negative life. This article probably will make a few people think, especialy about their day to day actions.
