Just notions will into good actions grow, And to our reason we our virtues owe; False judgments are the unhappy source of ill, And blinded error draws the passive will. To know one God, and know ourselves, is all We can true happiness or wisdom call. Reading.Christian instructed, 3 Notes and Queries, 240.
Beyond abstain To ask; nor let thine own inventions hope Things not reveald, which the invisible King Only omniscient, hath suppressd in night; Enough is left besides to search and know. Knowledge is as food, and needs no less Her temperance over appetite. Milton.Par. Lost, Book VII.
Knowledge and Wisdom, far from being one, Have oft-times no connexion. Knowledge dwells In heads replete with thoughts of other men; Wisdom in minds attentive to their own. Cowper.The Task, Book VI., Line 88.
