Whereas, in fact, we always fpeak a different language. We fpeak of the grand fcenes of nature, tho uninterefting in a piclurefque light, as having a ftrong effect on the imagination often a ftronger, than when they are properly difpofed for the pencil. We every where make a diflinction between fcenes, that are beautiful, and amujing -, and fcenes that are piflurefque. We examine, and admire both. Even artificial objects we admire, whether in a grand, or in a humble ftile, tho unconnected with picturefque beauty the palace, and the cottage the improved garden-fcene, and the neat homeftall. Works of tillage alfo afford us equal delight the plough, the mower, the reaper, the hay-field, and the harveft-wane. In a word, we reverence, and admire the works of God; and look with benevolence, and pleafure, on the works of men.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
