“Observing the intricate functioning of nature is sheer pleasure; writing is sheer pain. But if we don’t set down on paper what we have observed, how are we going to document the miracles of evolution and the life cycle of birds, beasts, flowers, plants, man? “

- Darwin, as quoted in, Irving Stone, The Origin, Doubleday & co. New York, 1980.
