{Thursday}

 
Just as bodies lay themselves open all round to attractive and friendly things and go to meet them, so when they happen on things hateful and hostile they fly from them all round and pull back and withdraw into themselves.

{Francis Bacon
History of Density and Rarity
(1624)

_ * * * * _

We must ... investigate the individual and particular friendships and quarrels or sympathies and antipathies of bodies with diligence and care, seeing that they bring with them such a number of useful things.

{Francis Bacon
New Abecedarium of Nature
(1622)
