Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. – Ben Franklin

Yes I get the information about the people who I am using their quotes from Google or Wikipedia. But if one continues to read you find out why I picked who and what it is about their quote.

I was looking in today in history for inspiration and I wasn’t feeling the people I came across so I picked Benjamin Franklin for the many things he did and for being one of our founding fathers of the United States.

I love this quote because as I get older I feel this is most like me. I am forgetful at times, shit happens. But I’m not too old to be taught and I like being taught and learning new things. Lastly I am hands on when it comes to learning, many are so involving and showing me will teach me fastest.
