Shall he alone, whom rational we call, Be pleas'd with nothing, if not bless'd with all? Say what the use, were finer optics giv'n, T' inspect a mite, not comprehend the heav'n?
The bliss of Man (could Pride that blessing find) Is not to act or think beyond mankind; No pow'rs of body or of soul to share, but what his nature and his state can bear. Or touch, if tremblingly alive all o'er, To smart and agonize at ev'ry pore?
He not only created all that exists but also can control the forces of nature; he can do the supernatural things, something that does not obey physical laws. We should bear in mind that although God has unlimited power, this does not mean that He manifests this power everywhere.
That’s why we possess free will, but it also entails the choice between good and evil in our everyday life. People can see this opposition of good and evil even in nature.
Milton believed that a man could overcome the universal rules through honesty and faith.
In his turn, Pope insisted that we should accept the order and our place in the God’s system.
Nature to these, without profusion kind, The proper organs, proper pow'rs assign'd; Each seeming want compensated of course, Here with degrees of swiftness, there of force; All in exact proportion to the state; Nothing to add, and nothing to abate.
Each beast, each insect, happy in its own; Is Heav'n unkind to Man, and Man alone?
Made for his use all creatures if he call, Say what their use, had he the pow'rs of all?
Now upward will he soar, And little less than Angel, would be more; Now looking downwards, just as griev'd appears To want the strength of bulls, the fur of bears.
