    4 We would like . . . all human beings, together or individually, young or old,


    rich or poor, noblemen or commoners, men or women, to be fully educated and to


    become accomplished beings. We would also like them to be educated and


    informed completely, not only on such or such a point, but also on all that will


    allow them to achieve their essence integrally, to yearn to know the truth, not to


    be deceived by pretense, to love good and not to be seduced by evil, to do what


    should be done and to keep from What should be avoided, to speak wisely (and


    not to remain silent) about everything with everyone when it is necessary; lastly, to


    always treat things, men, and God with prudence and not lightly, and to never


    stray from their goal: happiness.


    — Comenius, 17th-century Rosicrucian
