Yes, We Remember!

I am fairly sure the answer to this question is a resounding “Yes!”

“Can we not all remember the time when, on first taking to heart Milton, and afterwards Akenside, – (before knowing anything of Dante,) we conceived the grandest moment of possible existence to be that of a Seraph, poised on balanced wings, watching the bringing out of a world from chaos, its completion in fitness, beauty and radiance, and its first motion in its orbit, when sent forth by the creative hand on its everlasting way?”
