(Thought's from the Artist) As the author of Poor Richard's Almanac, Benjamin Franklin, wrote, “A penny saved is a penny earned and time enough proves little enough.”

After his death on April 17, 1790, Franklin bequeathed Boston and Philadelphia a total of $1,000 sterling, each with one hitch: much of the money could not be drawn on for 100 years, and the rest could not be distributed for 200 years. This gift became $6.5 million dollars, thanks to time and compound interest. Franklin's original purpose for the money was, helping young tradesmen get started in their jobs.
