The 13 Virtues of Benjamin Franklin

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin is a great book, and is one of my all time favorite autobiographies. The main reason why I enjoy it so much is precisely because I admire his dedication to personal development which I believe is best exemplified by these 13 virtues.

If you haven't read the book, add it to your 'to read' list. And whether or not you've read it, study these virtues, make them a habit, take it as a simple prescription for better living that doesn't cost you a dime, but just a little bit of patience, self-discipline, and time.
