"By ignorance, and error, and prejudice, the mind of man is fetter'd and entangled, so that it hath not the free use of it self: but when we are rightly informed, especially in those things which are useful and necessary for us to know, we recover our liberty, and feel our selves enlarged from the restraints we were in before."
— Tillotson, John (1630-1694)
