It Never Stops

It Never Stops: Lovely piece by Maira Kalman on Ben Franklin:

Don’t mope in your room. Go invent something. That is the American message.
Electricity. Flight. The telephone. Television. Computers. Walking on the moon. It never stops.
(Via Daring Fireball.)

Some of the best things in Philly came that way, from Headhouse Square to Bartram Gardens to the ENIAC.
