he was a great man, and at every moment a complete man, whether he was caring for the children suffering form scarlet fever in his rural parish, or occupying himself with the translation of Plato, or discovering and describing some new plant, or recovering some forgotten utterance of a Father of the Church, or sitting in his study wrestling with some problem of the transmission of a text, or standing on the summit of the Matterhorn and concerned to identify the surrounding mountains…He was a student of the things and the people whom God has created; and in this study he forgot one thing only–himself.
