Design
 
        When any great design thou dost intend,
Think on the means, the manner, and the end.
Denham.

                    Honest designs
Justly resemble our devotions,
Which we must pay and wait for the reward.
Sir Robert Howard.    
  2
        He that intends well, yet deprives himself
Of means to put his good thoughts into deed,
Deceives his purpose of the due reward.
Beaumont and Fletcher.    
  3
        When men’s intents are wicked, their guilt haunts them,
But when they are just they’re arm’d, and nothing daunts them.
Middleton.
