More information about Final Jeopardy:
Benjamin Franklin is certainly one of the most quoted of the Colonial era; the specific quote in this 1789 letter was:
“Our new Constitution is now established, everything seems to promise it will be durable; but, in this world, nothing is certain except death and taxes,”
Franklin died less than a year after this letter. The “nothing is certain except death and taxes” became a very well-known American proverb when his papers were published in 1817, many years after his death.
