Page 2 - Aristotle ; not for the worthlessness of the author, to whom he would ever ascribe all high attributes, but for the unfruitfulness of the way ; being a philosophy (as his lordship used to say) only strong for disputations and contentions, but barren of the production of works for the benefit of the life of man ; in which mind he continued to his dying day.
Page 1 - Lady and eminent for piety, virtue, and learning ; being exquisitely skilled, for a woman, in the Greek and Latin tongues. These being the parents, you may easily imagine what the issue was like to be; having had whatsoever Nature or Breeding could put into him, His first and childish years were not without some mark of eminency.
Page 517 - Poësis, qua3 theatrum habet pro mundo, usu eximia est, si sana foret. Non parva enim esse posset theatri et disciplina et corruptela. Atque corruptelarum in hoc genere abunde est ; disciplina plane nostris temporibus est neglecta. Attamen licet in rebuspublicis modernis habeatur pro re ludiera actio theatralis, nisi forte nimium trahat e sátira et mordeat ; tarnen apud antiques curse fuit, ut ánimos hominum ad virtutem institueret.
Page 11 - Yet there happened in my time one noble speaker, who was full of gravity in his speaking. His language (when he could spare or pass by a jest) was nobly censorious. No man ever spake more neatly, more pressly, more weightily, or suffered less emptiness, less idleness, in what he uttered. No member of his speech but consisted of his own graces. His hearers could not cough or look aside from him without...
Page 10 - In which conversations and otherwise, he was no dashing man, as some men are ; but ever a countenancer and fosterer of another man's parts. Neither was he one, that would appropriate the speech wholly to himself or delight to out-vie others, but leave a liberty to the co-assessors to take their turns. Wherein he would draw a man on, and allure him to speak upon such a subject as wherein he was peculiarly skilful and would delight to speak : and for himself he contemned no man's observations, but...

Id fiet si pietate et religione recte instituti, moribus honesti, armis adversus hostes externos tuti, legum auxilio adversus seditiones et privatas injurias muniti, imperio et magistratibus obsequentes, copiis et opibus locupletes et florentes fuerint.
Page 11 - No man ever spake more neatly, more pressly, more weightily, or suffered less emptiness, less idleness, in what he uttered. No member of his speech but consisted of the own graces : his hearers could not cough, or look aside from him, without loss. He commanded where he spoke, and had his judges angry and pleased at his devotion. No man had their affections more in his power. The fear of every man that heard him was lest he should make an end.
Page 569 - C'est Dieu qui est la dernière raison des choses, et la connaissance de Dieu n'est pas moins le principe des sciences que son essence et sa volonté sont les principes des êtres.
Page 70 - ... of the application of the new method to all the phenomena of the universe. But to complete this, the last part of the Instauratio, Bacon does not hope : he speaks of it as a thing " et supra vires et ultra spes nostras collocata.
Page 5 - Which might be imputed, not so much to Her Majesty's averseness or disaffection towards him : as to the arts and policy of a great statesman then, who laboured by all industrious and secret means to suppress and keep him down ; lest if he had risen, he might have obscured his glory.
