“Be studious in your profession, and you will be learned. Be industrious and frugal, and you will be rich. Be sober and temperate, and you will be healthy. Be in general virtuous, and you will be happy. At least you will, by such conduct, stand the be”

-Benjamin Franklin

*Great advice as we head into a new year, set new goals, live more dreams.
