Yeah right beastlet, if it's in Wikipedia it must be true. It's not like just anyone could upload information and have it put on that sight without any bearing to it's actual factuality. eye rolling

For all we know the origional anonymous poster could have faked that quote and put it there or even the beastlet itself might have edited that page just to be able to call someone else a "dumbass".

I can see such a hateful and negative condescending "person" like the beastlet fabricating information in an attempt to make someone else look bad.

As much as I hate to admit, aDCbeast is correct. The actual issue of "Poor Richard: 1758, An Almanack, &c." was for the month of July.

The full quote is "The Way to see by Faith, is to shut the Eye of Reason: The Morning Daylight appears plainer when you put out your Candle."

My source is a reprint edition of Poor Richard's published in 1965.

BF published these books he dd not write them.
There are many almanacs published by BF, they are intended to be a collection of phrases of the time.
Many of which have no known author.
