Learn thou, O young man!
God hath appointed wisdom the reward
Of study. 'Tis a well of living waters,
Whose inexhaustible bounties all might drink;
But few dig deep enough.

SOUTHEY, Thalaba, B. 4–15.

Knowledge with us is difficult to gain,
Is difficult to gain, and hard to keep
As virtue's self; like virtue is beset
With snares; tried, tempted, subject to decay.

WORDSWORTH. Excursion, B. 5.

It much behooves us to improve the best we can our time and talents by studious inquiry; and since we have a long journey to go, and the days are but short, to take the straightest and most direct road we can find.

LOOKE. Essay on Study.

Hanc meam qualemcumque opellam boni consulite ; quod si minus eveniat, hominum mores ita probe perspectos habeo ut non multum fallar, et officii mei rationem ita calleo ut animo neutiquam cadam.
