"Go then my little book and show to all

That entertain and bid thee welcome shall

What thou doest keep close shut up in

Thy breast.

And wish what thou dost show them may be blest

To them for good may make them choose to be

Pilgrims better by far.

Pilgrims better, by far than thee or me."

John Bunyan
