I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we only will tune in.
George Washington Carver
Man must go back to nature for information.
Art is man's nature: Nature is God's art.
Philip James Bailey
Every generation thinks it has the answers, and every generation is humbled by nature.
Nature is an infinite sphere whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere.
Occurrences in this domain are beyond the reach of exact prediction because of the variety of factors in operation, not because of any lack of order in nature.
For I have learned to look on nature, not as in the hour of thoughtless youth, but hearing oftentimes the still, sad music of humanity.
Nature never deceives us; it is we who deceive ourselves.

You went to Dr. Ledsmar's house that very day after I had been with you to get a piano at Thurston's, and tried to inveigle him into talking scandal about me. You came to me with tales about him. You went to Father Forbes, and sought to get him to gossip about us both. Neither of those men will ever ask you inside his house again. But that is only one part of it.

He is about to set out upon one of his interminable cruises in that yacht of his, and was urging the entire party to accompany him. Tried to inveigle me into it, too

Definition from American Heritage Dictionary
Poison Dart Frogs
Poison Dart Frogs can be found in South America, Europe, and Asia. From
tiny pores in its skin, the frog secretes a defensive toxin that makes it unpalatable to
curious predators and which could easily kill if injected into a human or other animal.
Chocó Indians employ this secretion to poison the tips of their blowgun darts for hunting
monkeys and other small game. The use of frog poison for this purpose is practiced only in
the Pacific lowlands of western Colombia, although the poison dart frog has many
brilliantly colored, less toxic relatives living throughout the tropical rainforest in
lower Central America and northern South America.
Recent studies have shown some surprising results of study of these frogs. The National Aquarium in Baltimore, has been home to a large population of poison dart frogs for several years. It was hoped that scientists could study the toxins of these frogs in Baltimore. The frogs have been bred in the Rain Forest area of the Aquarium for a number of years now. It has been discovered that the skin succeeding generations of frogs is absent of most, if not all, toxins. The reason for this is not really known. It is suspected that the change in diet with the loss of some insects might be responsible. It is also possible that the loss of toxins was due to a loss of specific fungi growth on the skin of the frogs could be responsible. Nonetheless, the study of the poisons of the frogs must continue in their natural habitat, those living in artificial rain forests do not pass the production of poisons on to their offspring.

"What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but, scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable."
