Famous quotes containing the words genera, list and/or ant:

    Genius detects through the fly, through the caterpillar, through the grub, through the egg, the constant individual; through countless individuals the fixed species; through many species the genus; through all genera the steadfast type; through all the kingdoms of organized life the eternal unity. Nature is a mutable cloud which is always and never the same.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Lovers, forget your love,
    And list to the love of these,
    She a window flower,
    And he a winter breeze.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    The owl is abroad, the bat and the toad,
    And so is the cat-a-mountain;
    The ant and the mole sit both in a hole,
    And frog peeps out o’ the fountain.
    Ben Jonson (1572–1637)
