Quick Quotes 9 -- Antiquote

This time, a quote I read and disagreed with:

There was never proud man thought so absurdly well of himself, as the lover doth of the person loved; and therefore it was well said, That it is impossible to love, and to be wise.
--Francis Bacon

Honest love involves being able to truly understand and be comfortable with the workings of another person. It is wise to live with love towards chosen individuals, humanity, and nature. Bacon is wrong unless he is speaking only infatuation or immaturity which is another thing altogether..
