Of Friendship –Para by para explanation

IT HAD been hard for him that spake it to have put more truth and untruth together in few words, than in that speech, Whatsoever is delighted in solitude, is either a wild beast or a god.

Meaning …..Francis Bacon starts his essay with a grand statement modeled after the views of Aristotle. Finding pleasure in solicitude is contrary to human character and mind. He expresses his belief in rather strong words. Anyone, who shuns fellow human beings and retreats to isolation, is degraded to the level of a wild beast. The other possibility is that he is god.

  1. Thanks a lot to published such inovative ideas among students

    • Thanks Shruti.

      • This is a very nice explanation, could I use it to present a paper? The paper is a comparative study of the Tamil poet Thiruvalluvar’s work named Thirukkural. I have taken the chapter named Friendship, I hope you will allow me to use and cite your work for the paper.
