The Mythological Picture

lutely a good Thing, when a Man is sometimes the better for being without it. From hence it follows that a Person that has Honesty and Discretion to his Fortune, may make something on’t; But unless he is thus qualified, he is only furnish’d with Edge-Tools to cut his Fingers. To conclude, the overrating these Things is that which disorders Humane Life, and ruins the World; For when People fancy they can't be happy without such Circumstances, they’l boggle at no Wickedness to come at them; And all this Mischief is occasion’d, for want of a right Notion of what is really Good.
