“Omnes res creatso sunt divinaj sapientiaj et potentise testes, divitiaj felicitatis hurnanae: ex harum usu honitas Creatoris; ex pulchritudino sapientia Domini ; ex oeconomia in conservatione, proportione, renovatione, potentia majestatis elucet. Eanim itaque indagatio ab hominibus sibi relictis semper acstimata ; h vero eruditis et sapientibus semper oxculta ; male doctis et barbaris semper inimica fuit.” Linnaeus.

Quel que soit le principe de la vie animale, il ne faut qu’ouvrir les yeux pour voir qu’elle est le chef-d’eeuvre de la Toute-puissance, et le but auquel se rappor- tent toutes ses operations.” Buuckner, ThSorie du 8ysteme Animal, Leyden, 1767.

The sylvan powers

Obey our summons ; from their deepest dells The Dryads come, and throw their garlands wild And odorous branches at our feet; the Nymphs That press with nimble step the mountain-thyme And purple heath-flower come not empty-handed.

But scatter round ten thousand forms minute

Of velvet moss or lichen, torn from rock

Or rifted oak or cavern deep : the Naiads too

Quit their loved native stream, from whose smooth face

They crop the lily, and each sedge and rush

That drinks the rippling tide : the frozen poles.

Where peril waits the bold adventurer’s tread.

The burning sands of Borneo and Cayenne,

All, all to us unlock their secret stores And pay their cheerful tribute.

J. Taylor, Norwich, 1818,
