“Nothing is so dangerous to the progress of the human 

mind than to assume that our views of science are ultimate, 

that there are no mysteries in nature, that our triumphs are complete and 

that there are no new worlds to conquer.” 


¯ Humphry Davy

THE DANDELIONS 

To keep the dandelions 

From showing their cheerful faces,

Let's go spraying poisons

On the spaces between our graves.

“The world is in dire need of change – the difficult way is to achieve change so that everyone benefits - a way in which nobody suffers – a way in which nobody is left behind.  If change does not come in this way, it is not real change.”   

                                                                                       Robert Leslie Fielding

 



“We can reach a full understanding of the Universe.

We are profoundly capable of very big things!”

The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
Stephen Hawking
English cosmologist and physicist (1942 - )

'Upon this gifted age, in its dark colour,

Rains from the sky a meteoric shower

Of facts …they lie unquestioned, uncombined.

Wisdom enough to leech us of our ill

Is daily spun; but there exists no loom

To weave it into fabric.'

               Edna St. Vincent Millay

 

Is writing the loom to weave our wisdom into fabric?
