Nature is often hidden, sometimes overcome, seldom extinguished.

There are unknown forces in nature when we give ourselves wholly to her, without reserve, she lends them to us she shows us these forms, which our watching eyes do not see, which our intelligence does not understand or suspect.

Nature hides her secret because of her essential loftiness, but not by means of ruse.
