Quotes from Sir Francis Bacon

 

 

Of Superstition

"Atheism leaves a man to sense, to philosophy, to natural piety, to laws, to reputation, all which may be guides to an outward moral virtue, though religion were not; but superstition dismounts all these, and erects an absolute monarchy in the minds of men...the master of superstition is the people; and arguments are fitted to practice, in a reverse order."

Of Death

"Men fear death as children fear to go in the dark; and as that natural fear in children is increased by tales, so is the other."
