Sir Francis Bacon


“I found that I was fitted for nothing so well as for the study of Truth;"..."as being gifted by nature with the desire to seek, patience to doubt, fondness to meditate, slowness to assert, readiness to consider, carefulness to dispose and set in order; and hatred for every kind of imposture.” 

-Francis Bacon, 1605
