Monday's Nature Quote

The only solid piece of scientific truth about which I feel totally confident is that we are profoundly ignorant about nature.

  1. Nature?  Hell, my ignorance is vast. I'm profoundly ignorant about just about everything!

  2. There is a tremendous amount of life and opportunities for life on this planet, it is not just some simple globe spinning around the sun day in and day out. Even with all the advancements people have made, the more we learn the more we find out the less we really know.

  3. MANY ARE IGNORANT INNOCENTLY.  I KNOW I AM NOT FILLED WITH KNOWLEDGE ABOUT OUR PLANET, THE ANIMALS, PLANTS, AND ALL IN THIS BEAUTIFUL WORLD.  I TRY TO BE CAREFUL IN WHAT I DO TO NOT CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE ENVIRON.

  5. Ignorant innocently is soooo much better than willfully ignorant, in the case of those polluters and destroyers who know damn well what they are doing but are more concerned with personal profit than the mess or devastation they leave in their wake.

  6. Certainly not about haiku and limericks! (Love the pitcher/glass one!)

  7. The mysterious and sacred complexity of our planet never fails to fill me with awe.  I like to think that God made this world beautiful as a hallmark of his love.

  8. And therein lies the attraction, methinks.  Oh the mystery of the unknown. Fabulous crow photo, if they ARE crows.
