It is not the brains that matter most, but that which guides them -- the character, the heart, generous qualities, progressive ideas.
~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky (November 11, 1821 - February 09, 1881)
I am pessimistic about the human race because it is too ingenious for its own good. Our approach to nature is to beat it into submission. We would stand a better chance of survival if we accommodated ourselves to this planet and viewed it appreciatively instead of skeptically and dictatorially.
~ E. B. White (July 12, 1899 - October 01, 1985)
