Our sight is the most perfect and most delightful of all our senses; it fills the mind with the largest variety of ideas;converses with its objects at the greatest distance, and continues the longest in action without being tired or satiated with its proper enjoyments.
Sight is by much the noblest of the senses. We receive our notices from the other four, through the organs of sensation only. We hear, we feel, we smell, we taste, by touch. But sight rises infinitely higher. It is refined above matter, and equals the faculty of spirit.
