Excerpt from Seven Lectures on the Philosophy of Life, and the Art of Preserving Health

The inanimate worlds move and gravitate, and are chemically changed from form to form. The animate worlds live and reproduce their kind, and die, in obedi ence to fixed and unchangeable laws. These laws the intellect of man can discover and understand, and thus render his dominion co'extensive with his knowledge. So far as we understand the laws of nature, we can bring all substances governed by them beneath their action, and thus produce the results which we desire. So far as we understand the Creator's laws, he invests us with his power. When knowledge enables us to speak as with the aming tongue of lightning across a continent, is it not the same as though we had power to call down the swiftest angel from heaven and send him abroad as the messenger of our thoughts 2 When a knowledge of the sciences of astronomy and naviga tion enables us to leave any port we please on this side of the globe, and thread our labyrinthine way, among contrary winds, and through the currents and counter currents of the ocean, and enter any port we please on the opposite Side of the globe, is it not the same as though the Creator, for this purpose, had endowed us with his all-seeing vision and enabled us to look through clouds and darkness around the convex earth?
