Quote by Andrew Fletcher, From the minute
My Lord, I sorrow to learn that I am so timorous of heart and to learn that my Lord could be so forgetful of the elementary facts of nature, and also of mankind, that he believes when the lesser joins the greater, it can remain itself and maintain it
In this quote, the speaker expresses their disappointment in someone referred to as "my Lord". The speaker reveals that they are saddened by their own lack of courage and by the fact that "my Lord" seems to forget basic truths about nature and humanity. Specifically, it seems that "my Lord" believes that when smaller entities unite with larger ones, they can still retain their individuality and continue as they were before. The speaker disagrees with this notion, suggesting that such a viewpoint is unrealistic and goes against the fundamental principles of both nature and mankind.
