a few quotes from francis bacon

"They are ill discoverers that think there is no land, when they can see nothing but sea."

"A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds."

"He that gives good advice, builds with one hand; he that gives good counsel and example, builds with both; but he that gives good admonition and bad example, builds with one hand and pulls down with the other."

"Prosperity is the blessing of the Old Testament; adversity is the blessing of the New."

"Small amounts of philosophy lead to atheism, but larger amounts bring us back to God."

- Francis Bacon
