Our fleeting happiness here below is the forerunning proof of another and a perfect happiness, just as the earth, a fragment of the world, attests the universe.[Notre fragile bonheur d’ici-bas n’est-il donc point l’attestation d’un autre bonheur complet comme la terre, fragment du monde, atteste le monde?]
