Isaac Watts

  • Acquaint yourself with your own ignorance.

  • Let me be dressed fine as I will, Flies, worms, and flowers, exceed me still.

  • Do not be deceived; happiness and enjoyment do not lie in wicked ways.

  • Logic helps us to strip off the outward disguise of things, and to behold and judge of them in their own nature.

  • Nothing tends so much to enlarge the mind as traveling.

  • Disputation carries away the mind from that calm and sedate temper which is so necessary to contemplate truth.

  • Satirists do expose their own ill nature.

  • Though reading and conversation may furnish us with many ideas of men and things, our own meditation must form our judgement.
