Benjamin Franklin

A quote from Benjamin Franklin

The body of B. Franklin, Printer (like the cover of an old book, its contents torn out and stripped of its lettering and gilding), lies here, food for worms; but the work shall not be lost, for it will (as he believed) appear once more in a new and more elegant edition, revised and corrected by the Author.

— Epitaph on Himself. [1728]
