Quotes About Plants And Trees

"In Scandanavia, Iverson finds that the whole spectrum of pollen deposits is altered when (in early Neolithic times) ... the first farmers appear. Cereal pollens increase.

Quotes About Life From The Bible

"Dragons and Afterlife .. I dont see any difference between both of them, we didnt see neither the dragons nor afterlife, we just heard about them and both of them are superstitions with no scientific or logical evidence .. But the only reason you believe in afterlife unlike dragons is that youve been taught to believe in it from your birthday. now if they taught you to believe in dragons and if it were mentioned in your Bible or your holy book you would have believed in it .. herein lies the danger of religions, you can believe something exists without any evidence .. and thats why you should only follow science and let go of your religious teachings" - Author: Sherif Gaber

Yet, by and large, they have but slight taste for pleasure. Moneyalone cannot buy pleasure, though it can help. For enjoyment is an artand a skill for which we have little talent or energy." - Author: Alan Wilson Watts
