" Young Kepler loved gaming, but, because he was afraid of losing, he gambled only with himself. He was mystically religious and superstitious, and when he felt convicted of sin he punished himself for his misdeeds. In his disputations with his school fellows he showed a bent toward imaginative and paradoxical topics; at 14 he was already deeply interested in theological questions." " As he was a cultured and learned young man, Bacon's society was much sought after, but still he devoted considerable time to study. When he was 22 one of his first philosophical papers, THE GREATEST BIRTH OF TIME, appeared." " Before he was 7 years old Dickens was reading such books as RODERICK RANDOM, PEREGRINE PICKLE, HUMPHREY CLINKER, TOM JONES, THE VICAR OF WAKEFIELD, DON QUIXOTE, GIL BLAS, and ROBINSON CRUSOE."
