Wednesdays with Words: Able to Contend




“Histories make men wise; poets, witty; the mathematics, subtle; natural philosophy, deep; moral, grave; logic and rhetoric, able to contend.”
Francis Bacon, The Collected Works of Sir Francis Bacon

I don't remember where I read this one. I don't think I've shared it before for WwW. Someone reminded me of it because it was on GoodReads.

wise, witty, subtle, deep, grave, able to contend.

I like that.
