    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
