The laws of nature/Nature quote by Henry David Thoreau

“If we knew all the laws of Nature, we should need only
one fact, or the description of one actual phenomenon,
to infer all the particular results at that point.
Now we know only a few laws, and our result is vitiated,
not, of course, by any confusion or irregularity in
Nature, but by our ignorance of essential elements in
the calculation. Our notions of law and harmony are
commonly confined to those instances which we detect;
but the harmony which results from a far greater number
of seemingly conflicting, but really concurring, laws,
which we have not detected, is still more wonderful.….”
Henry David Thoreau
