• Be advised what thou dost discourse of, and what thou maintainest whether touching religion, state, or vanity; for if thou err in the first, thou shalt be accounted profane; if in the second, dangerous; if in the third, indiscreet and foolish.

    Sir Walter Raleigh, William Oldys, Thomas Birch (1829). “Miscellaneous works”, p.563
