Who could believe an ant in theory? a giraffe in blueprint? Ten thousand doctors of what's possible could reason half the jungle out of being. - John Ciardi, 1984
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not man the less, but Nature more. - Byron, "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage"
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. - Robert Heinlein, "Time Enough for Love"
