The Promus was Francis Bacon's storehouse from which he would draw forth things new and old, turning, twisting, expanding, modifying, and changing them with a nimbleness of mind of which he felt himself to be specially endowed. It is a storehouse also of pithy expressions that can be found throughout Shakespeare's (Bacon's) writings.
