Mais, parce que selon le saige Salomon sapience n’entre poinct en âme malivole, et science sans conscience n’est que ruyne de l’âme, il te convient servir, aymer et craindre Dieu, et en luy mettre toutes tes pensées et tout ton espoir, et, par foy formée de charité, estre à luy adjoinct en sorte que jamais n’en soys desamparé par péché.
But as the wise Solomon said, wisdom enters not into a malicious mind, and science without conscience is but the ruin of the soul, thus it behooves you to serve, to love, to fear God, and on him to repose all your thoughts and all your hope, and by faith formed in charity to adhere to him, so that you may never be separated from him by your sins.
–François Rabelais, Pantagruel roy des Dipsodes restitué à son naturel, avec ses faictz et prouesses espoventables, ch. viii (1532) in: Œuvres complètes p. 206 (Pléiade ed. 1955)(S.H. transl.)
