A generous nature that lay stupefied and oppressed under the combination of adverse circumstances, begins to awake and imbibe a charm from prospects of beauty and glory. This awaking genius gazes with rapture at the beauteous and elevating scenes of Nature. The beauties of Nature are familiar to it and charm it like a mother's bosom; and the objects, which have the plain marks of immense power and grandeur, raise in it a still, an inquisitive, a trembling delight. But this genius often throws, over the objects of its meditations, colours even finer than those of Nature herself, and opens a Paradise that exists only in its own creations."
