Live Well, Do Good

Death

“Wish not so much to live long as to live well,” said Benjamin Franklin.

Franklin, who died in 1790 at the age of 84, was fortunate enough to live both long and well.

This section explores living well and doing good from the perspective of the end. Often, we can better know and appreciate the lives of ourselves and others from the viewpoint of looking backwards.
