Epigraph

Vol. I:
 
For not to know at large of things remote
From use, obscure and subtle, but to know
That which before us lies in daily life,
Is the prime wisdom.
 
MILTON.
 
 
Vol.II:
 
Among unequals what society
Can sort, what harmony or true delight?
Or fellowship I speak fit to participate
All rational enjoyment.
 
MILTON.
