My Enemy's Gift

"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."

—Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790);

philosopher, printer, writer, inventor, scientist
