III. ' What a piece of work is man! IIow noble in reason! How infinite in faculties 1 in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god 1"Siiakbspeaee. COME to it we must, if not before, at least at the moment of death, that God, and God alone, is all our best having, our repose, the complete and perfect answer to man's whole being.
