"The most modest plant… expresses its independent being in the form of its leaf, flower, and fruit, as does the butterfly in its larva, pupa and imago. Those marine snails which are seen by no eye except that of the occasional human explorer, express their essence in a host of splendid forms and colors -- each according to its kind. Their appearance speaks of a language of which we suspect we can grasp a few words, and gives evidence of a hidden power of life, that goes beyond the needs of self-preservation." - Adolf Portmann
"Nature speaks with a thousands voices, and we have only begun to listen." - Ilya Prigogine & Isabelle Stengers.
“There is a transcendental dimension beyond language…. It’s just hard as hell to talk about it.” - Terence McKenna
