THE WORLD'S LIFE-SYSTEM

“ The investigation of nature teaches us to recognise the omnipotence, the perfection, and the inscrutable wisdom of an infinitely higher Being, in his works and actions So long as we are ignorant of these things, the perfect development of the human mind cannot be hoped for, or even conceived. Without this knowledge the immortal spirit of man cannot attain to a consciousness of its own dignity, or of the rank which it occupies in creation.”—LIEBIG's Familiar Letters on Chemistry.
