La Grande Allée à l'entrée des Jardins de Vauxhall. L'Orchestre, et les Musiciens, 1755, Johann Sebastian Müller


"[…] if courage be the gift of society to man, we have reason to consider his union with his species as the noblest part of his fortune. […] Send him to the desert alone, he is a plant torn from its roots: the form indeed may remain, but every faculty droops and withers; the human personage and the human character cease to exist" (Adam Ferguson, An Essay on the History of Civil Society, 1767).
