  • Yes. The one I think that's very relevant for the times is: Early to rise and late to bed makes a man wealthy, wealthy but dead.
  • This is from Google: "the proverb, "Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise." This quote is often attributed to Benjamin Franklin since it appeared in his Poor Richard's Almanack; however, it was first used in print by John Clarke in a 1639 book of English and Latin proverbs."😇

      Franklin was a plagiarizer, without question. But he was also a very wise man. Chances are, you had to do some research to come up with the name John Clarke. Not that he was inconsequential, but if a quote is able to stand the test of time, it's because of who it is associated with, not because of who originated it. It's like a patent - it's not necessarily the one who invents something new who profits from it, but the one who files a patent on it first.
