2. "When we no longer look at an organic being as a savage looks at a ship, as at something wholly beyond his comprehension; when we regard every production of nature as one which has had a history; when we contemplate every complex structure and instinct as the summing up of many contrivances, each useful to the possessor, nearly in the same way as when we look at any great mechanical invention as the summing up of the labour, the experience, the reason, and even the blunders of numerous workmen; when we thus view each organic being, how far more interesting, I speak from experience, will the study of natural history become!"
Author: Charles Darwin
3. "They had supper and went away, and Ivan Ilyich was left alone with the consciousness that his life was poisoned and was poisoning the lives of others, and that this poison did not weaken but penetrated more and more deeply into his whole being.With this consciousness, and with physical pain besides the terror, he must go to bed, often to lie awake the greater part of the night. Next morning he had to get up again, dress, go to the law courts, speak, and write; or if he did not go out, spend at home those twenty-four hours a day each of which was a torture. And he had to live thus all alone on the brink of an abyss, with no one who understood or pitied him."
Author: Leo Tolstoy

Today's Quote

Los mayores me aconsejaron que dejara a un lado los dibujos de serpientes boas abiertas o cerradas y que me preocupara más bien de la geografía, la historia, el cálculo y la gramática. De esta forma abandoné a los seis años una magnífica carrera de pintor. Me había desanimado el fracaso de mi dibujo número 1 y de mi dibujo número 2. Los mayores no entienden nada por sí mismos y es fastidioso para los niños tener que andar dando más y más explicaciones"
Author: Antoine De Saint Exupéry
