Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Newton, Sir Isaac
 
Nature and nature’s laws lay hid in night:
God said, Let Newton be! and all was light.
        Pope.—Epitaph for Sir Isaac.
  1
        Nature herself
Stood all subdued by him, and open laid
Her every latent glory to his view.
        Thomson.
  2
He also fix’d our wand’ring queen of night,
Whether she wanes into a scanty orb,
Or, waxing broad, with her pale shadowy light
In a soft deluge overflows the sky.
        Thomson.
