    'Few there are but do love knowledge: but the reason why there are so few that are knowing is, because the entrance of all arts and sciences is difficult; and though most are delighted with the amiable parts of learning and wisdom in other men, and desire to be like qualified, yet they imitate not their indefatigable industry, by which they ascended to that eminent height'.
