A steady hand in governing of military affairs is more requisite than in times of peace, because an error committed in war may, perhaps, prove irremediable.

Francis Bacon/Quotes

Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested.

A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.

Reading maketh a full man, conference a ready man, and writing an exact man.

Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider.

If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts; but if he will be content to begin with doubts he shall end in certainties.

Hope is a good breakfast, but it is a bad supper.

Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not; a sense of humor to console him for what he is.

In taking revenge, a man is but even with his enemy; but in passing it over, he is superior.

A little philosophy inclineth man's mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion.

There is no excellent beauty that hath not some strangeness in the proportion.

Not true making an enemy by removing troop from a peaceful area to allow a development of warlike people is will hurt and not be irreversible world danger as history shows of course in Bacons time thinking was very differentSpeak to the hand

It's pretty much like in love affairs: the winner takes it all...
