Benjamin Franklin about wisdom (“The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin”, 1791) - Those who govern, having much business on their hands, do not generally like to take the trouble of considering and carrying into execution new projects. The best public measures are therefore seldom adopted from previous wisdom, but forc'd by the occasion.
