Glimpses of the Wonderful

Excerpt from Glimpses of the Wonderful: A Series of Instructive Sketches for the Young When contemplating the magnitude and distances of the heavenly bodies, we are overwhelmed with astonishment and awe; and, as we turn away from the glories revealed to us by the telescope, we are ready to sink into dust at the comparison of our own utter insignificance. "Surely," we say, "such pigmy insects as we arc can never occupy a moment's care from that awful Being who has framed the boundless wonders of the heavens-who has scattered, like gold-dust, throughout the immeasurable depths of space, worlds upon worlds, compared to the least of which our earth, with all its inhabitants, its " everlasting hills," its rivers and its seas, is but a speck in creation. Surely, we are tempted to say, the very existence of such a mere atom as man must be forgotten by Him whom the very heaven of heavens cannot contain.
