It is the modest, not the presumptuous, inquirer who makes a real and safe progress in the discovery of divine truths. One follows Nature and Natures God; that is, he follows God in his works and in his word.1
Letter to Mr. Pope.
Note 1. Slave to no sect, who takes no private road, But looks through Nature up to Natures God. Alexander Pope: Essay on Man, epistle iv. line 331. [back]
