Again Solomon, Chapter 15, "Foolishness," says he, "is joy to the fool," thereby plainly confessing
that without folly there is no pleasure in life. To which is pertinent that other, "He that increases
knowledge, increases grief; and in much understanding there is much indignation." And does he
not plainly confess as much, Chapter 7, "The heart of the wise is where sadness is, but the heart
of fools follows mirth"? by which you see, he thought it not enough to have learned wisdom
without he had added the knowledge of me also. And if you will not believe me, take his own
words, Chapter 1, "I gave my heart to know wisdom and knowledge, madness and folly."
Where, by the way, 'tis worth your remark that he intended me somewhat extraordinary that
he named me last. A preacher wrote it, and this you know is the order among churchmen, that
he that is first in dignity comes last in place, as mindful, no doubt, whatever they do in other
things, herein at least to observe the evangelical precept.
