46 Quotes About Sir Francis Bacon & The Shakespeare Works


Recommended Posts

Here's the last short quote video about the Great One dedicated to Lawrence in celebration of 25 wonderful years of sirbacon.org♥️♥️♥️

It is little known that there are a substantial number of passages by professors and academics relating to the links and connections between Bacon and Shakespeare. These links appear in largely inaccessible or out of the way learned journals or other difficult to obtain publications that the majority of scholars, students and casual readers are unfamiliar with. We have therefore thought on the basis that they may be of interest to a wider audience to gather them together in one place for those with an interest in Francis Bacon and Shakespeare and the authorship of the Shakespeare works.

The 'quote video' series was such a good idea. The Phoenixes have created an engaging, easy to consume way of bringing a great diversity of writings on and by Francis Bacon, theme by theme, to a large audience. A large and on-going audience. How many souls will read at least one of the Phoenixes' Great Quotes videos on YouTube and elsewhere between now and the quarter-centenary of Francis's "death"? Hundreds of thousands is my guess. Beautifully packaged and loaded with 'thought-seeds', each one helps to extinguish the lies and mis-truths of Bacon's detractors who simply don't understand. The garden has been planted and will bloom in time.

Good evening A Phoenix,

Francis Bacon said :"Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested".

I hope that your great video will be "chewed and digested" by the greatest number of people.

This video is  indispensable for anyone raising questions about the paternity of Shakespeare's Work.

 I will have to watched it several times in order to "absorb" all the information that you share with us in such a short time ! 😊

Many thanks for your dedication. This video is clearly the achievement of a great work, a "work for ants" in order to make information accessible to all. 🙏❤️

Thank you to Lawrence for this great idea , and thanks to you, A Phoenix, for another great achievement ! 👍❤️

Hi A Phoenix,

Yes, indeed, I have seen that you have also published a paper, and I will read it with a cool head. 😊

Thank you again.

Love Yann.

Hi Yann,

The good thing with the paper is everyone can read it at their own pace and also if required take some of the quotes from it and use them for their own research.

InDeed, the published paper will be seen by many more people than the beautiful enjoyable video. I'd predict hundreds of more eyes, maybe thousands. One day hundreds of thousands more eyes may study that paper.

The original paper is published here:

We also added the full PDF on the A. Phoenix page:

https://sirbacon.org/a-phoenix/

Read at at your own pace, knowing that Google is reading as well, indexing keywords and phrases that AI is learning to share as we converse.

Funny, not just AI/Google is listening, the Universe is listening as well. I was alone at a pizza place the other day for a quick bite and the guys in the next table were discussing "bacon" the entire time they were there. Not Francis Bacon, but the sliced bacon many people eat, and some are crazy about it. But Francis Bacon was on my mind, so the Synchronicity just fed my own Bacon craziness. LOL

I love it when I see BACON on a license plate on a random car passing by!

I'm guessing that this was your own number plate? Some idiots may have thought that "FR" was an abbreviation of "fried"! Which reminds me of a bad idea I had recently: a gallery of Francis Bacon merch, tacky or otherwise, to see where the Master sits in terms of contemporary popular culture... just for fun. For example, how's this for tacky?

We do know that Bacon has been having great fun with his name from the beginning. How many times does he "hang" and "bacon" appear near the word "name" in Shakespeare's works?

I'm working on trying to picture Francis Bacon skiing in Utah on his Sir Francis Bacon skis. I'm sure when he was in his prime, skiing in the mountains of his New Atlantis would be a thrill. I'm trying to picture it, getting closer, but not yet...

In all honesty, in my world, except people who spend time with me, if I were to show this photo and ask what they see, they would say it is "Shakespeare holding a pan of Bacon."

EDIT: Is it Bacon in an actor's clothing?

Hi Rob,

What is important is that sirbacon.org/B'Hive, and all of us, you, Lawrence, Yann, Kate, and Eric, and all the other contribuors, love and support each other in spreading the Baconian word-the Truth about the secret life and writings of the greatest man who ever lived.

I think you're right - Bacon dressed as Hamlet holding a pan instead of a skull. Or is he playing Macbeth about to whack Duncan over the head with a frying pan? Thanks for noticing this peculiar image.

As to the  "spectral presence" of Bacon for which A Phoenix quotes Jonathan Lamb, in A Phoenix's video, "46 Quotes About Sir Francis Baconand the Shakespeare Works," and paper, "Francis Bacon and the Shakespeare Works," as follows:

The spectral presence of Bacon permeates the fabric of The Merchant of Venice and apart from
Bassanio several other characters in the play bear a striking resemblance to Bacon. Professor
Lamb voices that not only does ‘Bassanio and Shylock resemble Bacon’, but so too its heroine
‘Portia’s legal, economic, and even religious advantages …may even suggest an association
with one of early modern England’s most famous lawyers, Francis Bacon’ and she ‘works as a
hypothesis-based scientist avant la letter, while other figures bear a striking resemblance to
what would become known as Baconian induction.’

Jonathan P. Lamb, Shakespeare In The Marketplace Of Words (Cambridge University Press, 2017), p. 79.

I wanted to mention that I had previously noted the "presence" of Bacon both in my book, Francis Bacon's Hidden Hand (Algora Publishing, 2018) and in the online  version posted here at SirBacon.org in pdf, "Bacon is Bellario with “Just Desserts” for All!"  (SirBacon.org, July 28, 2016).

In the July, 2016, pdf, I wrote that Mark Edwin Andrews "offered no concrete explanation for Bacon's uncanny, unseen "presence" in this play" (p. 7).

In my book, the wording became, "Andrews seems at a loss to rationally explain Bacon's strong "presence" within the play" (p. 17). And Simon Miles, in his "Foreword," wrote, "She does not need to press the point, because the conclusion is all but unavoidable: the play is Bacon's, through and through. It is permeated by his presence." (p. 6)

In the pdf (p. 52, fn 218), I quoted from Bacon's "Maxims of the Law": 

Bacon’s words in his “Maxims of the Law” remind me, figuratively, of Bellario’s ephemeral, off-stage yet controlling “presence”: 'Like law it is, but more doubtful, where there is not a presence, but a kind of representation which is less worthy than a presence, and yet more worthy than a name or reference' (in explaining that a mistake in age on a portrait of a woman “tendered,” in lieu of the woman herself, in a marriage contract would not invalidate the contract). Francis Bacon, “Maxims of the Law,” ‘Regula XXIV,’ in Spedding, Works VII, p. 381.

I have just today realized that this quotation is not in my published book! This is unfortunate, for, as anyone can see, here Bacon is describing the very phenomenon we've been describing as occurring in The Merchant of Venice, of something less that a presence, yet more than a nothing.  And it is in Regula 14 where the opening paragraph is about degrees of certainty and proof. Presence is more important than name, he says, and below that is demonstration or reference. Also, as to The Merchant of Venice, look at Regula 12 in Bacon's "Maxims," on bonds and duress, Spedding 7:378-379!  Bacon's Maximes of the Common Lawes of England were not published until 1631.

From the SirBacon.org "old" "New Page":

 "on what's new page of sirbacon
July 28, 2016
Christina G. Waldman has contributed a new essay, Bacon as Bellario with "Just Deserts for All" :
An explanation of Mark Edwin Andrews' Second Argument in "Law v Equity" in "The Merchant of Venice's Legalization of Act IV, Scene I "
 
If I have been remiss in failing to continue to fully acknowledge that earlier versions of what became my book were first published online here at SirBacon.org, I apologize and will try to remedy that in the future. It was not from lack of gratitude. There may be errors in the early pdf, as to dates, etc., that were corrected in the book. That was the main reason I had previously asked Lawrence to take down the pdf version. I hope to have restored the live link here?
 
Thank you for this forum!

11-24-22: I made an entry on all this at my website because the quotation from Bacon on "presence" is such an important quotation, https://christinagwaldman.com/errata-updates-and-feedback/. I am gratetul to you, A Phoenix, for directing my attention to the fact that this quotation was inadvertently left out of my book.
