My first reaction when reading about how Benjamin Franklin was going to obtain moral perfection, was that it was very interesting how a man of little schooling was able to think about what he wanted to achieve in life on a moral level. Franklin was even able to come up with a plan for himself, and he came up with, what he believed to be, the top 13 virtues necessary or desirable to improve ones virtue. This made me think about how many people in today’s society do not tend to think like Franklin did. Most people do not try to improve there virtues and attain the perfect morals, but Franklin strived to do just that. It is quite amazing how a man who start with little social standing, achieved what he did, and that he was able to think and strive to be a better person; even at such a young age.
