It is a truly wonderful fact--the wonder of which we are apt to overlook from familiarity--that all animals and all plants throughout all time and space should be related to each other in group subordinate to group, in the manner which we everywhere behold--namely, varieties of the same species most closely related together, species of the same genus less closely and unequally related together, forming sections and sub-genera, species of distinct genera much less closely related, and genera related in different degrees, forming sub-families, families, orders, sub-classes, and classes.
It might, also, perhaps have been expected that naturalised plants would have belonged to a few groups more especially adapted to certain stations in their new homes.
"Come over here, Helene, dear," said Anna Pavlovna to the beautiful young princess who was sitting some way off, the center of another group.
With the exception of the aunt, beside whom sat only one elderly lady, who with her thin careworn face was rather out of place in this brilliant society, the whole company had settled into three groups. One, chiefly masculine, had formed round the abbe.

And having duly disposed of Anna's friend, the Princess Myakaya got up, and together with the ambassador's wife, joined the group
at the table, where the conversation was dealing with the king of Prussia.
Forthwith flashes of actual flame, a bright glare leaping from one to another, sprang from the scattered group
When I look at a star, my sensation is (1) A member of the group
of particulars which is the star, and which is associated with the place where the star is; (2) A member of the group
of particulars which is my biography, and which is associated with the place where I am.*
* These Fighting groups
