"When with bold telescopes I survey the old and newly discovered
stars and planets, and when with excellent microscopes I discern, in
otherwise invisible objects, the inimitable subtlety of nature's
curious workmanship; and when, in a word, by the help of anatomical
knaves, and the light of chymical furnaces, I study the book of nature
, I find myself oftentimes reduced to explain with the Psalmist, How
manifold are Thy works, O Lord! in wisdom hast Thou made them all!
(Ps. 104:24)" 1.433-434
