Manipulation of Information 

At first sight we learne to read; and then

By Natures rules to perce and construe Men:

So commenting upon their Gesture, Finde

In Them the truist copie of the Minde.

The Tongue and Heart th’ intention oft divide:

The Hand and Meaning ever are ally’de

 

William Diconson, 1644
