On Trivialities -- Benjamin Franklin



http://www.livejournal.com/users/pandemo/439185.html

For want of a Nail the Shoe was lost;

for want of a Shoe the Horse was lost;

and for want of a Horse the Rider was was lost;

being overtaken and slain by the Enemy,

all for want of Care about the Horse-shoe Nail.
    -- Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanac, June 1758, The Complete Poor Richards Almanacs, facsimile ed., vol.. 2. 375, 377 [1970]
