A Quotable Puzzle

Benjamin Franklin, born January 17th, 1706, was many things: inventor, writer, philanthropist, founder father. But old Ben had his humble beginnings working in a print shop– a position that taught him the importance of communication.

Perhaps the first “Great Communicator”, Franklin was known for his pithy wit and wisdom. Following are four famous quotes… but only three of them are things that Franklin actually said. Can you guess which one did *not* come from Franklin’s pen?

#1: “Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today.”

#2: “If you would persuade, you must appeal to interest rather than intellect.”

#3: “We must learn to live together as brothers or we are going to perish together as fools.”

#4: “Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.”
