BISHOP JOHN WILKINS
English writer
(1614 - 1672)

It is an excellent rule to be observed in all disputes, that men should give soft words and hard arguments; that they should not so much strive to vex as to convince each other.
      - [Argument]

Know then,
  As women owe a duty--so do men.
    Men must be like the branch and bark to trees,
      Which doth defend them from tempestuous rage;--
        Clothe them in winter, tender them in age,
          Or as ewes' love unto their eanlings lives;
            Such should be husbands' custom to their wives.
              If it appears to them they've stray'd amiss,
                They only must rebuke them with a kiss;
                  Or cluck them as hens' chickens, with kind call,
                    Cover them under their wing, and pardon all.
      - [Husbands]

Nothing is properly one's duty but what is also one's interest.
      - [Duty]

Obscurity in writing is commonly an argument of darkness in the mind. The greatest learning is to be seen in the greatest plainness.
      - [Style]
