For being too hasty in huddling up and tumbling out Books. Herein I confess I cannot acquit my self wholly from blame. I know well, that the longer a Book lies by me, the perfecter it becomes. Something occurs every day in reading or thinking, either to add, or to correct and alter for the better; but should I defer the Edition till the Work were absolutely perfect, I might wait all my life-time, and leave it to be published by my Executors.
