Words to remember....

Just thought I would share this...it invokes some thinking....
Written on Benjamin Franklin's tombstone in Christ Church Burial Grounds, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania:
The Body of
B. Franklin, Printer
Like the Cover of an old Book
Its Contents turn out
And Stript of its Lettering & Guilding
Lies here.  Food for Worms
For, it will as he believed
appear once more
In a new and more elegant Edition
corrected and improved
By the Author
