If nature has so wove her web of kindness, that some threads of love and desire are entangled with the piece, must the whole web be rent in drawing them out? Whip me such stories, great Governor of Nature! said I to myself: wherever thy Providence shall place me for the trials of my virtue, whatever is my danger, whatever is my situation, let me feel the movements which rise out of it, and which belong to me as a man—and, if I govern them as a good one, I will trust the issue to thy justice; for thou hast made us, and not we ourselves.
