There is all Africa and her prodigies in us; we are that bold and adventurous piece of Nature which he that studies wisely learns in a compendium what others labour at in a divided piece and endless volume . . . There is no man alone, because every man is a microcosm and carries the whole world about him.”
Thomas Browne : The Works of Sir Thomas Browne (Editor: G. Keynes), Volume 2. London.
