Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

Benjamin Franklin was seventeen seventy SIXER!

God helps those who help themselves.
Well done better than well said.
Lost time is never found again.
Energy and persistence conquer all things.
Begun in anger ends in shame.
3 kept secret. 2 were dead.
One today is worth two tomorrows.
Doors of wisdom are never shut.
Words show wit. Actions show meaning.
Beauty and folly are old companions.
Games lubricate the body and mind.
When you've finished changing, you're finished.
Admiration is the daughter of ignorance.
Our necessities never equal our wants.
A penny saved, a penny earned.
Creditors have better memories than debtors.
Half a truth often great lie.
