“The most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mysterious. It is the power of all true art and science….To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms — this knowledge, this feeling, is at the center of true religiousness.”

–Albert Einstien

“Something else gets under your skin, keeps you working days and nights…something beyond the love of puzzle solving. And that other force is the anticipation of understanding something about the world that no one has ever understood before you. ”

— Alan Lightman

“When you have seen one ant, one bird, one tree, you have not seen them all.”

— E.O. Wilson
