""Cells depend on chemical reactions to live: during respiration, for instance, sugar combines chemically with O2 to make CO2 & energy. None of these reactions occur spontaneously... Proteins coax&control these fundamental chemical reactions in the cell--speeding some&slowing others, pacing the reactions just enough to be compatible with living."" Feb 12, 2018 10:37AM

Professor Hilary Tamar is very pleased to have solved a mystery, and since no one else will tell the tale, sets out to do so with amusing verbosity.

“I imagine the earth when I am no more:
Women's dresses, dewy lilacs, a song in the valley.
Yet the books will be there on the shelves, well born,
Derived from people, but also from radiance, heights.”
Czeslaw Milosz

Jane Addams
“The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life.”
Jane Addams

Janet Fitch
“Always learn poems by heart. They have to become the marrow in your bones. Like fluoride in the water, they'll make your soul impervious to the world's soft decay.”
Janet Fitch, White Oleander

Kim Stanley Robinson
“they were now their own unavoidable experiment, and were making themselves into many things they had never been before: augmented, multi-sexed, and most importantly, very long-lived, the oldest at that point being around two hundred years old. But not one whit wiser, or even more intelligent. Sad but true: individual intelligence probably peaked in the Upper Paleolithic, and we have been self-domesticated creatures ever since, dogs when we had been wolves. But also, despite that individual diminuation, finding ways to accumulate knowledge and power, compiling records, also techniques, practices, sciences

possibly smarter therefore as a species than as individuals, but prone to insanity either way...”
Kim Stanley Robinson

Matthew Desmond
“Every condition exists,” Martin Luther King Jr. once wrote, “simply because someone profits by its existence. This economic exploitation is crystallized in the slum.” Exploitation. Now, there’s a word that has been scrubbed out of the poverty debate.”
Matthew Desmond, Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City
