We are drowning in information,
while starving for wisdom.
The world henceforth will be run by synthesizers,
people able to put together the right information at the right time,
think critically about it,
and make important choices wisely.

— E. O. Wilson

Greater Roadrunner at the End of Life — Images by kenne

In nature nothing dies.
From each sad remnant of decay,
some forms of life arise
so shall his life be taken away
before he knoweth that he hath it.

–Charles Mackay
