=Knowledge.=

Knowledge is as food, and needs no less
Her temp'rance over appetite, to know
In measure what the mind may well contain;
Oppresses else with surfeit, and soon turns
Wisdom to folly.

MILTON: _Par. Lost,_ Bk. vii., Line 126.

All our knowledge is, ourselves to know.

POPE: _Essay on Man,_ Epis. iv., Line 397.

_I know_--is all the mourner saith,
Knowledge by suffering entereth;
And Life is perfected by Death!

MRS. BROWNING: _Vision of Poets,_ St. 330.

Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.

TENNYSON: _Locksley Hall,_ Line 141.

But Knowledge to their eyes her ample page,
Rich with the spoils of time, did ne'er unroll.

GRAY: _Elegy,_ St. 13.

Oh, be wiser thou!
Instructed that true knowledge leads to love.

WORDSWORTH: _Lines left upon a Seat in a Yew-tree._
