All nature is but
art, unknown to thee;
direction, which thou canst not see;
harmony not understood;
All partial evil,
spite of pride in erring reason's spite,
truth is clear, Whatever is, is right.
Pope (1688-1744) from Essay on Man.
do not what we ought,
we ought not, we do,
lean upon the thought
Chance will bring us through.
Arnold (1822-1888) from Empedocles on Etna.
