Quote by Francis Bacon
Natural abilities are like natural plants, that need pruning by study and studies themselves do give forth directions too much at large, except they be bounded in by experience.
This quote emphasizes the importance of both natural abilities and acquired knowledge. It suggests that while individuals may possess innate talents, these abilities need to be nurtured and honed through education and consistent effort. It further highlights the role of studies in providing guidance, but cautions that excessive theoretical knowledge without practical experience may lack direction and effectiveness. To maximize one's potential, a balance between natural abilities and the application of knowledge gained through study and experience is necessary.

It's my firm intention to whop cancer into submission and I truly believe I've given myself the best start possible by radically overhauling my diet and by staying true to my motto, which is: Don't worry, be happy, feel good. The first thing I did when I was diagnosed was to turn vegan.
