Excerpt from The Holy State, and the Profane State Who is not sensible, with sorrow, of the distractions of this age? To write books, therefore, may seem unseasonable, especially in a time wherein the press, like an unruly horse, hath cast off his bridle of being licensed; and some serious books, which dare fly abroad, are hooted at by a flock of pamphlets. But be pleased to know, that when I left my home it was fair weather, and my journey was half-past before I discovered the tempest; and had gone so far in this work, that I could neither go backward with credit, nor forward with comfort. As for the matter of this book, therein I am resident on my profession; holiness, in the latitude thereof, falling under the cognizance of a divine. For curious method, expect none; essays for the most part not being placed as at a feast, but placing themselves as at an ordinary. The characters I have conformed to the then-standing laws of the realm; (a twelvemonth ago were they sent to the press;) since which time, the wisdom of the king and state hath thought fitting to alter many things, and I expect the discretion of the reader should make his alterations accordingly.
