Labour well the Minute Particulars,

attend to the little ones […]

General Good

is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite, and flatterer

For Art and Science cannot exist

but in minutely organized particulars,

And not

in the generalizing demonstrations of the Rational Power;

The Infinite alone resides

in Definite and Determinate Identity.

(William Blake, 1820, Jerusalem,f. 55, ll.)
