Let no man, upon a weak conceit of sobriety, or an ill-applied
moderation, think or maintain that a man can search too far, or
be too well studied in the book of God's word. Rather let men en-
deavour an endless progress or proficiency therein. - BACON.

We shall conduct you to a hill side, laborious, indeed, at the first
ascent; but else so smooth, so green, so full of goodly prospects and
melodious sounds on every side, that the harp of Orpheus was not
more charming."-MILTON.
