Publisher's Synopsis

Excerpt from Modern Painters, Vol. 3

Compare Eagle's Nest, Chap. II. 30 It is as little the part of a wise man to re?ect much on the nature of things above him, as of beings beneath him. It is immodest to suppose that he can conceive the one, and degrading to suppose that he should be busied with the other. To recognize his everlasting inferiority, and his everlasting greatness; to know himself, and his place; to be content to submit to God without understanding Him; and to rule the lower creation with sympathy and kindness, yet neither sharing the passion of the wild beast, nor imitating the science of the insect, -this you will find 15 to be modest towards God, gentle to His creatures, and wise for himself.
