Seeing Creator through Creation

"Let us consider the works of God and observe operations of His hands. Let us take note and admire His infinite goodness and wisdom in the formation of them. No creature in the sublunary world is capable of doing this except man, and yet we have been deficient therein." 

John Ray, 1691, The Wisdom of God Manifest in the Works of His Creation, which was cited in The Best Nature Writing of Joseph Wood Krutch, 1949.
