Commonplace Book.... Jean Henri Fabre

"Later, my children, you will find only too many people saying: This world is the product of chance no intelligence rules it, no Providence guides it.  To those people, my friends, show the snap-dragon's yellow spot.  If, less clear-sighted than the burly bumble-bee, they do not understand it, pity them: they have diseased brains." - The Story-Book of Science by Jean Henri Fabre, Ch LXII, p. 332-333
