    I prefer the honest jargon of reality to the outright lies of books.
    —Jean Rostand (1894–1977)

    Men are like plants; the goodness and flavor of the fruit proceeds from the peculiar soil and exposition in which they grow. We are nothing but what we derive from the air we breathe, the climate we inhabit, the government we obey, the system of religion we profess, and the nature of our employment.
    —Michel Guillaume Jean De Crevecoeur (1735–1813)
