Nehemiah Grew
  By humility I mean not the abjectness of a base mind; but a prudent care not to over-value ourselves upon any account.
Nehemiah Grew: Cosmologia Sacra.    
  From the total abolition of the popular power may be dated the ruin of Rome: for had the reducing hereof to its ancient condition, as proposed by Agrippa, been accepted instead of Mæcenas’s model, that state might have continued unto this day.
Nehemiah Grew: Cosmologia Sacra.    
  Contemplative men may be without the pleasure of discovering the secrets of state, and men of action are commonly without the pleasure of tracing the secrets of divine art.
