Better Reward

“…thou shalt never envy the luster and glory of the great lights of worldly men, which are great by the infirmity of others, or by their own opinion, great because others think them great, or because they think themselves so, but thou shalt find, that howsoever they magnify their lights, their wit, their learning, their industry, their fortune, their favor, and sacrifice to their own nets, yet thou shalt see,  that thou by thy small light hast gathered Pearl and Amber, and they by their great lights nothing but shells and pebbles.” (Donne)
