Quotation by Fulke Greville

As what was here before the world was made,
The first Mans life, the state of Paradise,
Where heaven is, or hell's eternall shade,
For Gods works are like him, all infinite;
And curious search, but craftie sinnes delight.
Fulke Greville (1554–1628), British poet. Caelica (l. 43–46). . .
