" To the natural philosopher there is no natural object unimportant or trifling. From the least of nature’s works he may learn the greatest lessons. […] And this is, in fact, one of the great sources of delight which the study of natural science imparts to its votaries. A mind which has once imbibed a taste for scientific enquiry, and has learnt the habit of applying its principles readily to the cases which occur, has within itself an inexhaustible source of pure and exciting contemplations. […] Accustomed to trace the operation of general causes, and the exemplification of general laws, in circumstances where the uninformed and unenquiring eye perceives neither novelty nor beauty, he walks in the midst of wonders. ”                               ~ John Herschel; (Born 221 years ago today, March 7, 1792)
