"He is a happy man...
that hath learned to read himself more than all books; and hath so taken out this lesson, that he can never forget it; That knows the world, and cares not for it; that after many traverses of thoughts is grown to know what he may trust to, and stands now equally armed for all event."

--Joseph Hall, Characters of Vertues and Vices (1639).
