A Quote by Benjamin Franklin on earth, interest, men, privacy, time, wisdom, and world

It is wonderful how preposterously the affairs of the world are managed. We assemble parliaments and councils to have the benefit of collected wisdom, but we necessarily have, at the same time, the inconvenience of their collected passions, prejudices and private interests: for regulating commerce an assembly of great men is the greatest fool on earth,

Benjamin Franklin (1706 - 1790)
