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.

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._
