The Benjamin Franklin Virtues

Benjamin Franklin was told at an early age that he was not good with people. Following this, Benjamin Franklin came up with 13 virtues to work on for a week at a time (and then repeat) until his death in 1790. The 13 virtues are:
  1. Temperance
  2. Silence
  3. Order
  4. Resolution
  5. Frugality
  6. Industry
  7. Sincerity
  8. Justice
  9. Moderation
  10. Cleanliness
  11. Tranquility
  12. Chastity
  13. Humility
The next 13 blogs will be about defining each of those virtues to provide a foundation to who ever wants to tackle them.
