  • quot;Surely reader, this book shall be a looking glass for thee, wherein thou shalt most lively beholde the daily and present daungers and decytes of mans most miserable lyfe and the eyes of thy understanding shall be made open to discerne the flatteries of desceytfull men, and the wisdome of this most guileful worlde: by means whereof ye may easily blot out many effects of this (alas) our crooked age. This precious gem of knowledge, who so shall lodge it in the secrecie of his memory, shall never loose it but shall rather augment and increase it with age in such sort that he shall win a marvellous commodotie. . . . Thomas North, 1570 For to find so riche a treasure and not to know how to take it and laye it up; is rightly to follow him, that finding a masse of gold and silver, had not the wyt to take it and carry it away.quot; Saturday, 4 April 2009 43
