“Nature teaches, but what it teaches is often hidden and obscure. It would be well to consider what may be called the hidden teacher, lest, we become too much concerned with the formalities by which we learn. We think we learn from teachers, and we sometimes do. But the teachers are not always to be found in schools or in great laboratories. Some times what we learn depends on our own power of insight.” ~ Lauren Eiseley – Anthropologist The University of Pennsylvania (The Unexpected Universe)
