To accept and remain in the mediocrity of our earthly state means for Locke to content ourselves with the measure God has assigned to our natural faculties, without desiring what goes beyond our intellectual capacities and wasting our time idly: this was a lesson he probably thought of as highly necessary to recall to the proud intellectuals of his time to the Cartesians in particular , as well as to the English gentry, whose social and economic status was changing in the late seventeenth century. We are here in the state of mediocrity; finite creatures, furnished with powers and faculties very well fitted to some purposes, but very disproportionate to the vast and unlimited extent of things. King 1: I have often thought that our state here in this world is a state of mediocrity, which is not capable of extremes, though on one side there may be great excellency and perfection; that we are not capable of continual rest, nor continual exercise, though the latter has certainly much more of excellence in it. We are not able to labour always with the body, nor always with the mind; and to come to our present purpose, we are not capable of living altogether exactly by a rule, not altogether without it — not always retired, not always in company.
