Popular quotes of famous philosopher Francis Bacon

Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider.
Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.
In charity there is no excess.
A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.
Old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.
There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.
I will never be an old man. To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am.
It is impossible to love and to be wise.
Revenge is a kind of wild justice, which the more a man’s nature runs to, the more ought law to weed it out.
In taking revenge, a man is but even with his enemy; but in passing it over, he is superior.
