    should be out by the garage,” Rob told Jack as he opened the car door. He left it open as he slid out of his seat, sprinted through the grass, ducked around to the driveway, and halted as the flashlight beam fell upon the gasoline can. Jack picked it up, squeezing the handle tight enough that if he’d shined the beam upon his own hand, his knuckles would’ve been white. He carried it the way one carries a fallen tissue, delicate but disgusted, and darted back to the vehicle. The time on the clock…

    A swarm of bees took flight in my stomach. Although the roar of the crowd was audible from backstage, I moved around attempting to hear the fulfilling clank of the beads that attached to my cornrow braids. I felt skeptical about everything around me as this was more than ever I dreamed of in the twenty-five years of my life. I mustered the courage to peer behind the curtains only to find multitudinous copies of my book being held by people whom I’d never met before. The same words of “The fear…

BACONI NATI," which according to his unconventional form of Latin means that Francis Bacon wrote the plays. Platt 's phrase, translated into conventional Latin, would actually mean "Of the birth of Fr.…

    Four Idols Sir Francis Bacon divided the flaws of human thinking and understanding into four parts. These parts are in order of Idols of the Tribe, Idols of the Cave, Idols of the Market-place, and Idols of the Theatre. Each idol represents a separate fault in the way we perceive occurrences in the natural world and attempt to find a solid, unbiased, fact based, conclusion to the reasons behind the occurrences. These Idols, some more than others, inhibit one’s ability to have a clear way of…

    As Sir Francis Bacon once said, "A man that studieth revenge keeps his own wounds green, which otherwise would heal and do well." The quotation above proves Sir Francis Bacon’s beliefs that if one is constantly fixated on achieving revenge, it will never heal your own pain and misery.
