“I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.”  ~Elwyn Brooks White, Essays of E.B. White, 1977

  1. I’ve made a wish very similar to the quote by Elwyn Brooks White, many times. I don’t understand why ‘man’ has this need to prove that humans are bigger, better, greater than nature and all her incredible ‘talents’, when it’s quite clear that Nature has far more talent than we could ever hope to achieve. (sigh).
