Früh zu Bett und früh aufstehen

Früh zu Bett und früh aufstehen, macht den Menschen gesund, reich und klug.

"Early to Bed, and early to Rise,
makes a man Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise."


Zitat aus
"The Western miscellany" (1778)
von Benjamin Franklin Ells
"Franklin's way to Wealth, under the character of poor Richard."

Textauszug
"Sloth makes all things difficult, but industry, all easy; and he that riseth late, must trot all day, and shall scarce overtake his business at night: while laziness travels so slowly, that poverty soon overtakes him. Drive thy business, let not that drive thee; and early to bed, and early to rise, makes men healthy, wealthy, and wise," as poor Richard says.
