. "Accuse me not

Of arrogance.

If, having walkc<I with Nature,
And offered, far tut frailty would allow.
My heart a daily racriftcc to Truth,
I now affirm of Nature and of Truth,
Whom I have served, that their Divinity
Revolts, offended at the ways of men.
Philosophers, who, though the human soul
Re of a thousand faculties composed,
And twice ten thousand interests, do yet prize
This viitl, and the transcendent universe,
No more than as a mirror that reflects
To proud Self-love her own intelligence."

Wordsworth.
