Explanation:
  "Early to bed, early to rise (or get up) makes a man healthy, wealthy (or rich), and wise (or intelligent)." This was just one of the many quotes (or famous phrases) of a man named Benjamin Franklin that are still popular today. Benjamin Franklin, who lived from 1706 to 1790, was one of the most famous Founding Fathers (or the men who were very important in creating the United States).
  “早睡早起的人身体好、聪明又富裕。"这仅仅是本杰明·富兰克林广受人们喜爱的名言之一。本杰明·富兰克林(1706-1790)是最著名的几位开国元勋之一。
  Benjamin Franklin is famous for many things. He was a U.S. diplomat, which is a person who represents his or her government in another country. Benjamin Franklin was the U.S. diplomat to France. He got the French to send guns and other things to the Americans while they fought for their independence (or freedom) from Britain.
  本杰明·富兰克林因许多事情而闻名于世。他曾担任美国外交官,代表国家和其他国家进行外事活动。他曾被派往法国寻求帮助,得到了用于美国独立战争的武器及物资。(或者:他曾经为了美国独立战争,而向法国请求战略支援。)
  Benjamin Franklin was also the first U.S. postmaster general (or the person who makes sure that the mail gets delivered within the United States). Later in life, Benjamin Franklin participated in the Constitutional Convention (or the meetings to write the country's most important legal document, the Constitution). At 79 years old, he was the oldest member there.
  本杰明·富兰克林同时也是美国首任邮政部长。他晚年还参加了宪法大会,当时79岁高龄的他成为年纪最大的议员。
  Benjamin Franklin loved books. He wrote a popular book called Poor Richard's Almanac. This book was printed every year and had many different kinds of information, including the weather, a calendar, poems, and more. Benjamin Franklin made a lot of money by printing Poor Richard's Almanac and many other books. At that time, books were very expensive and very few people could buy books. So Benjamin Franklin had the idea to create a free library, or a building that would have many books that people could read without having to buy the books. America's first library opened in 1731 and soon they became very popular all over the country.
  本杰明·富兰克林酷爱读书,他写了一本书叫做《穷理查年鉴》。这本年鉴每年出版一次,里面包含了天气、日历、诗歌等丰富的信息。他靠这本册子和其他书赚了很多钱。那时,书是一种奢侈品,很少人买得起。因此他有了造一座免费图书馆的想法,人们可以在这里读到很多书又不用额外花钱买下来。于是美国第一座图书馆在1731年建成了,很快就风靡全国。
  Benjamin Franklin is also very well-known for his inventions (or tools and machines that are created for the first time). For example, he created bifocals (or glasses that has two types of glass in them: one that helps people see things that are close, and one that helps people see things that are far away). He also did many experiments (or scientific tests) on electricity.

  本杰明·富兰克林还因很多发明而闻名于世。例如,他发明了即能看清楚近处又能看清楚远处的双焦距眼镜,还做了很多电学实验。
