Consulting on the sum of things foreseen,

By that which we work naturally, as, when we breathe, sleep, and move, we set forth the glory of God, as natural agents do; albeit we have no express purpose to make that our end, nor any advised determination therein to follow a law. Hooker, b. i. p. 49.
In my school-days, when I had lost one shaft,
I shot his fellow of the self-same flight,
The self-same way, with more advised watch,
To find the other forth; by vent'ring both,
I oft found both. Shakesp. Merchant of Venice.
