Nothing more sublime, nothing more religious than the study of nature.

Through the work the maestro is known, and through the world marvels its creator has been revealed. He who has penetrated the immensity of space, the eternity of time, who knows that for millions of centuries the same laws of stellar movement have applied, this admirable machine which we call world has always moved untouched, with no need of composure, he who knows the same fundamental laws which determine the vital functions of living beings in our globe, in this atom of creation, will create in no doubt a more perfect idea of a Supreme Author than he who ignores all that, and because of that has the pretension of believing the world has been created only for himself.

With just pride, rejoiced for being gifted with the reason and intelligence capable of acknowledging so much, but in another way the conscious capability of his incapacity to understand the causes of so much marvel, the conscious of his littleness with respect to the whole world, will teach him humbleness.

The study of nature, the contemplation of its varied products will always be an endless source of the most pure rejoicement, which never leave remorse and never arouse petty passions.
