Cicero for the Commonplace Book

Says Cicero: There is nothing so charming as the knowledge of that branch of literature which enables us to discover the immensity of nature, the heavens, the earth, and the seas; this is the branch which has taught us religion, moderation, and magnanimity, and has rescued the soul from obscurity to make us see all things above, below, and between…”
found in Nature Readers: Sea-side and Way-side, Issue 4, By Julia McNair Wright
