7. Quote from Herman Raybon via Benjamin Franklin and Alfred Lord Tennyson

Benjamin Franklin –

The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness;

To an opponent, tolerance;

To a friend, your heart;

To your child, a good example;

To a father, deference;

To your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you;

To yourself, respect;

To all men, charity.

Alfred Lord Tennyson—

Knowledge comes, Wisdom lingers.
