Literature and Dogma  (1873) 
by Matthew Arnold

'La tendance à l'ordre ne peut-elle faire une partie essentielle
de nos inclinations, de notre instinct, comme la tendance à la
conservation, à la reproduction?'
                                               Senancour.

('May not the tendency to conduct form an essential part
of our inclinations, of our instinct, like the tendency to self-
preservation, to the reproduction of the species?')
