The Quote

Now i'm about to take my last voyage, a great leap in the dark


The condition of a man... is a condition of war of everyone against everyone


Curiosity is lust of the mind


A man's conscience and his judgment is the same thing; and as the judgment, so also

may be erroneous

No man's error becomes his own law; nor obliges him to persist in it.


science is the knowledge of consequences and dependence of one fact upon another.


The life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short.


The flesh endures the storms of the present alone;the mind those of the past and future

as well as the present. Gulttony is a lust of the mind.


Understanding is nothing else then conception caused by speech


The obligation of subject to the sovereign is understood to last as long and no longer then the power lasteth by which he is able to protect them
