Which virtue on Benjamin Franklin's list do you think is least important?Why?
I think that if i had to pick out of the thirteen virtues, industry would be least important. But im not really sure how to explain why its least important. All of the virtues seem really important though.

  • American Literature -

    The definition of industry that fits Franklin's meaning is probably "systematic work or labor."

    In your opinion, why is work the least important?

    As a retired person, industry doesn't seem nearly as important as love, purpose, freedom, and leisure.

  • American Literature -

    Well work is important because you get money to pay for everything, but some times work is not always the main importance in life. You have important issues less physically, and more emotional and verbal.

    I agree.
