Sir Thomas Browne (1605-1692), Christian Morals, Part III, Sect. 11:
Look not for Whales in the Euxine Sea, or expect great matters where they are not to be. Seek not for Profundity in Shallowness, or Fertility in a Wilderness. Place not the expectations of great Happiness here below, or think to find Heaven on Earth; wherein we must be content with Embryon-felicities, and fruitions of doubtful Faces.
