Indued with sanctity of reason.

Let none henceforth seek needless cause to approve the faith they own; when earnestly they seek such proof, conclude they then begin to fail.

"Let there be light!" said God; and forthwith light
  Ethereal, first of things, quintessence pure,
    Sprung from the deep; and, from her native east,
      To journey through the aery gloom began,
        Spher'd in a radiant cloud.
      - [Light]

Let us no more contend, nor blame
  Each other, blamed enough elsewhere, but strive
    In offices of love, how we may lighten

      - [Books]

Many books,
  Wise men have said, are wearisome; who reads
    Incessantly, and to his reading brings not
      A spirit and judgment equal or superior,
        Uncertain and unsettled still remains--
          Deep versed in books, and shallow in himself.
      - [Reading]

Meanwhile the adversary of God and man,
  Satan, with thoughts inflam'd of highest design,
    Puts on swift wings, and towards the gates of Hell
      Explores his solitary flight; sometimes the left:
        He scours the right hand coast, sometimes the left:
          Now shaves with level wing the deep; then soars
            Up to the fiery concave, tow'ring high.
      - [Satan]
