"There is something so amazingly grand--so stupendously affecting--in the contemplating the works of the Divine Architect, either in the moral, or the intellectual world, that I think one may rightly call it the cordial of the soul--it is the physic of the mind--and the best antidote against weak pride--and the supercilious murmurings of discontent."
— Sancho, Charles Ignatius (1729-1780)
(I.xliv, pp. 123-7; pp. 87-9)
