PHRENOLOGICAL

JOURNAL AND MISCELLANY.

VOL. IV.

OCTOBER 1826-NOVEMBER 1827.

“ As in the inquiry of Divine truth, the pride of man hath ever inclined to leave the oracles of God's word, and to vanish in the mixture of their own inventions ; so, in the self-same manner, in inquisition of nature, they have ever left the oracles of God's works, and adored the deceiving and deformed ima. gery, which the unequal mirrors of their own minds have represented unto them. Nay, it is a point fit and necessary in the front and beginning of this work, without hesitation or reservation to be professed, that it is no less true in the human kingdom of knowledge, than in God's kingdom of heaven, that no man shall enter into it, except he become first as a little child."-Bacon. of the Interpretation of Nature.
