Excerpt from Essai sur l'Homme: Traduit de l'Anglais Of the Nature and State of Man with respect to the Universe. Awake, my St. John! Leave all meaner things To low ambition, and the pride of kings. Let us - since life can little more supply Than just to look about us, and to die Expatiate free o'er all this scene of man A mighty maze! But not without a plan A wild, where weeds and flow'rs promiscuous shoot; Or garden, tempting with forbidden fruit. Together let us beat this ample field, Try what the open, what the covert yield; The latent tracts, the giddy heights, explore Of all who blindly creep, or sightless soar; Eye nature's walks, shoot folly as it flics, And catch the manners living as they rise Laugh Where we must, be candid where we can But vindicate the ways of God to man.
