But dost thou love life, then do not squander time, for that's the stuff life is made of.

Ben Franklin never squandered his time, so surely he must have loved life. Ben Franklin is remembered as one of America's great thinkers. His ideas and visions helped to lay the foundation for the United States of America as we know it today. He had a clear vision of the way America should be and he spent his time helping to make sure that it would be.

Consider, for example, his idea regarding The Rattlesnake as a Symbol of America.
