A Quote by Sir Francis Bacon on men

in

The rising unto place is laborious, and by pains men come to greater pains; and it is sometimes base, and by indignities men come to dignities. The standing is slippery, and the regress is either a downfall, or at least an eclipse.

Francis Bacon (1561 - 1626)
