Nature Facts

“One must not only see sharply, but read aright what they see.  The facts in the life of Nature that are transpiring about us are like written words that the observer is to arrange into sentences.  Or the writing is in cipher [in code] and we must furnish the key.”

~John Burroughs (with Mary Burt), Birds and Bees, Sharp Eyes and Other Papers (1887)
