A Collection of Apophthegms, New and Old[
This is Francis Bacon's collection of wise sayings of past personalities. "The Apophthegms are pointed speeches, and certainly they are of excellent use. 'The words of the wise are as gods, ' saith Solomon. They serve to be interlaced in continued speech. They serve to be recited upon occasion of themselves. I have for my recreation amongst more serious studies, collected some few of them.
