From Benjamin Franklin, “On Luxury, Idleness, and Industry,” in The Life of Benjamin Franklin (Auburn: Derby and Miller, 1852), p. 292:
“It has been computed by some political arithmetician, that if every Man and Woman would work for four Hours each Day on something useful, that Labour would produce sufficient to procure all the Necessaries and Comforts of Life; want and misery would be banished out of the world, and the rest of the twenty-four hours might be leisure and pleasure.”
