Now is this golden crown like a deep well
That owes two buckets, filling one another,
The emptier ever dancing in the air,
The other down, unseen and full of water:
That bucket down and full of tears am I,
Drinking my griefs, whilst you mount up on high.

—Richard (Richard II, Act IV scene i)

To study, therefore is to serve God. Note also that knowledge has three properties, of which the first is that it always gains and never diminishes, the second is that it fosters virtuous habits, and the third is that it does not increase unless the knower Wills it and delights in it and seeks after it with the reason and will.

While you here do snoring lie,
Open-eyed conspiracy
His time doth take.
If of life you keep a care,
Shake off slumber, and beware:
Awake, awake!
