Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe.
Adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature's inexorable imperative.
Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.
Affliction comes to us, not to make us sad but sober; not to make us sorry but wise.
Beauty is in the heart of the beholder.
