"The mental eye beholds by comparison, without a microscope, the human body magnified to view in the world of nature. But the component faculties of the mind and sprirt can be discovered only by the light of analogy, which displays the faculties of the human mind in the functions of the human body, and the workings of man's spirit in the works of nature."
