“Consider what nation it is whereof ye are : a nation not slow and dull, but
of a quick, ingenious, and piercing spirit; acute to invent; subtle and sinewy to
discourse ; not beneath the reach of any point the highest that human capacity
can soar to: a nation of Prophets, of Sages, and of Worthies."

Milton's “AREOPAGITICA.”
