Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much of life. So aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something.
Two Went up into the Temple to Pray
by Richard Crashaw
Two went to pray? O rather say
One went to brag, th' other to pray:
One stands up close and treads on high,
Where th' other dares not send his eye.
One nearer to God's altar trod,
The other to the altar's God.
