Of Studies and Of Great Place
Sir Francis Bacon
"Histories make men wise; poets witty; the mathematics subtle; natural philosophy deep; moral grave; logic and rhetoric able to contend."
"Read not to contradict, nor to believe, but to weigh and consider. Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested."
Francis Bacon was born on January 22, 1561 in London, England.
Bacon served as attorney general and Lord Chancellor of England, resigning in the midst of charges of corruption.
His more valuable work was philosophical.
