A Little Micro Humor…


“Enzymes are things invented by microbiologists that explain things which otherwise would require harder thinking!”

Wisdom to ponder…

Francis Bacon 2
Francis Bacon


British Statesman and Philosopher

1561 – 1626


“A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.”

“Age appears to be best in four things; old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.

“Fame is like a river that bears up things light and swollen, and drowns things weighty and solid.”

“Knowledge is power.”

“Money is like manure, of very little use except it be spread.”

“Nature, to be commanded, must be obeyed.”

“Reading makes a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.”

“The great end of life is not knowledge but action.”

“He who questions much, shall learn much, and retain much.”

“Small amounts of philosophy lead to atheism, but larger amounts bring us back to God.”
