If we want to make a statement about a man's nature on the basis of his physiognomy, we must take everything into account; it is in his distress that a man is tested, for then his nature is revealed.
Nature also forges man, now a gold man, now a silver man, now a fig man, now a bean man.
Once a disease has entered the body, all parts which are healthy must fight it: not one alone, but all. Because a disease might mean their common death. Nature knows this; and Nature attacks the disease with whatever help she can muster.
In us there is the Light of Nature, and that Light is God.
Who else is the enemy of Nature but he who mistakes himself for more intelligent than Nature, though it is the highest school for all of us?
