Edward O. Wilson Quotes

They are the matrix in which the human mind originated and is permanently rooted, and they offer the challenge and freedom innately sought.

I offer this as a formula of enchantment to invigorate poetry and myth: mysterious and little known organisms live within walking distance of where you sit. Splendor awaits in minute proportions.

Edward O. Wilson

It's like having astronomy without knowing where the stars are.
