Presumption
 
                                Who dares
To say that he alone has found the truth?
Longfellow.

        Presume to lay their hand upon the ark
Of her magnificent and awful cause.
Cowper.    
  2
        How dare the plants look up to heaven, from whence
They have their nourishment?
Shakespeare.    
  3
        It is not so with Him that all things knows
As ’tis with us that square our guess by shows:
But most it is presumption in us when
The help of heaven we count the act of men.
Shakespeare.    
  4
  He will steal himself into a man’s favor and for a week escape a great deal of discoveries; but when you find him out, you have him ever after.
Shakespeare.
