What, I ask, is the truth of water? Is it that it is formed of hydrogen and oxygen? … There is no water in oxygen, no water in hydrogen: it comes bubbling fresh from the imagination of the living God . . .

If he become not then as a hart panting for the water-brooks, let him go back to his science and its husks. . . .
