For nature beats in perfect tune, And rounds with rhyme her every rune, Whether she work in land or sea, Or hide underground her alchemy.

What a paradox if our own cleverness in science should force us to live underground with the moles.j. william fulbright
Nothing is so much calculated to lead people to Forsake sin as to take them by the hand, and watch over them with tenderness.
