N’est-il pas agréable d’exercer notre esprit dans los angeles contemplation des grands spectacles de los angeles nature ? N’est-il pas utile de savoir au moins sur quoi nous marchons, quelle position nous occupons dans l’infini, quel est ce soleil dont les rayons bienfaisants entretiennent l. a. vie terrestre, quel est ce ciel qui nous environne, quelles sont ces nombreuses étoiles qui pendant los angeles nuit vague répandent dans l’espace leur silencieuse lumière ? Cette connaissance élémentaire de l’univers, sans laquelle nous végéterions comme les plantes, dans l’ignorance et l’indifférence des explanations dont nous subissons perpétuellement les effets, nous pouvons l’acquérir, non seulement sans peine, mais encore avec un plaisir toujours grandissant. »
