Compete the sentences below.

Write NO MORE THAN ONE WORD for each

 Studies serve for 1 ________, ornament and 2_________.
 The chief use of studies for delight is in 3__________ and retiring.
 The chief use of studies for ornament is in 4_________.
 To spend too much time in studies is 5 __________; to use them too much for ornament is 6 ________.
 Natura abilities are like natural 7_______ that need pruning by study.
 Crafty men 8 ________ studies.
 9 __________ men admire studies.
 Wise men 10 ________ studies.


Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man. And therefore if a man writes little; he had need have a great memory; if he confers little, he had need have a present wit, and if he reads little, he had need have much cunning, to seem to know that he doth not. Histories make men wise, poets witty; the mathematics subtle; natural philosophy deep; moral grave; logic and rhetoric, able to contend. Abeunt studio in mores: (Studies pass into the character). Nay there is no stand or impediment in the wit, but may be wrought out by fit studies: like as diseases of the body may have appropriate exercise. Bowling is good for the stone and reins, shooting for the lungs and breast, gentle walking for the stomach; mriding for the head, and the like. So if a man's wit be wandering, let him study the mathematics, for in demonstration if his wit be not apt to distinguish or find differences, let him study the schoolmen; for they are cymini sectors. If he be not apt to beat over matters, and to call up one thing to prove and illustrate another, let him study the lawyers' cases. So every defect of the mind may have a special receipt.
