Engrave this Quote For it is not possible to join serpentine wisdom with columbine innocency, except men know exactly all the conditions of the serpent: his baseness and going upon his belly, his volubility and lubricity, his envy and sting, and the rest; that is, all forms and natures of evil: for without this, virtue lieth open and unfenced.
Bacon was referring to Jesus
-Francis Bacon, The Advancement of Learning, bk. 2, ch. 21, sct. 9, 1605 Tell a Friend
