JOHN MASON GOOD
English physician and author
(1764 - 1827)

Not worlds on worlds, in phalanx deep,
  Need we to prove a God is here;
    The daisy, fresh from nature's sleep,
      Tells of His hand in lines as clear.
      - found in the "Naturalist's Poetical Companion" by Rev. Edward Wilson
        [Daisies]

The perfection of an art consists in the employment of a comprehensive system of laws, commensurate to every purpose within its scope, but concealed from the eye of the spectator; and in the production of effects that seem to flow forth spontaneously, as though uncontrolled by their influence, and which are equally excellent, whether regarded individually, or in reference to the proposed result.
      - The Book of Nature (series I, lecture IX)
        [Art]

Now happiness consists in activity: such is the constitution of our nature: it is a running stream, and a stagnant pool.
      - The Book of Nature
         (series III, lecture VII) [Happiness]
