“Science is full of egos and arrogance, but it is fuller of simple moments of pleasure at the joy of finding some gem of new knowledge, big or small. Such gems can be anyone’s.”
Rob Dunn, Every Living Thing: Man's Obsessive Quest to Catalog Life, from Nanobacteria to New Monkeys

“Copernicus theorized that the Earth revolved around the sun, but it was not until he lay on his deathbed that he published anything regarding his discovery. He had largely kept it a secret, and a pretty good one as they go.* It would take Galileo to publicize and add nuance to Copernicus’s theory, but soon what was once heretical, that the Earth circled the sun, seemed obvious. Our place in the universe changed in a generation. The biological equivalent of the Copernican revolution would prove less simple. The biological world does not revolve around us, but we still tend to believe it does.”
Rob Dunn, Every Living Thing: Man's Obsessive Quest to Catalog Life, from Nanobacteria to New Monkeys

“Without their chloroplasts plants would be left like the rest of us, to eat what they find. Instead they hold out their green palms and catch light. If there is magic in the world, surely this is it: the descendants of tiny creatures in leaves, capable of ingesting the sun.”
