Francis Bacon, Sr. quotes

English lawyer, statesman, philosopher, and master of the English tongue, 1561-1626

The ill and unfit choice of words wonderfully obstructs the understanding.


Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed.


The mould of a man's fortune is in his own hands.


Many secrets of art and nature are thought by the unlearned to be magical.


The worst solitude is to be destitute of sincere friendship.


There is a difference between happiness and wisdom: he that thinks himself the happiest man is really so; but he that thinks himself the wisest is generally the greatest fool.


There is a wisdom in this beyond the rules of physic: a man's own observation what he finds good of and what he finds hurt of is the best physic to preserve health.


There is little friendship in the world, and least of all between equals.


There is no comparison between that which is lost by not succeeding and that lost by not trying.


Those that want friends to open themselves unto are cannibals of their own hearts.
