      §12. Perception, I believe, is, in some degree, in all sorts of Animals;
though in some, possibly, the Avenues, provided by Nature for the
reception of Sensations are so few, and the Perception, they are
received with, so obscure and dull, that it comes extremely short of
the quickness and variety of Sensations, which is in other Animals:
but yet it is sufficient for, and wisely adapted to, the state and
condition of that sort of Animals, who are thus made: So that the
Wisdom and Goodness of the Maker plainly appears in all the Parts
of this stupendious Fabrick, and all the several degrees and ranks
of Creatures in it.
Locke Hum II, 9, §12, p. 148
