    • But when the pollen has come onto the stigma, it does not burrow in itself, for it is far too bulky; it sends fine fertilizing beings which it contains through the stigma and into the interior of the ovary…. - Christian Konrad Sprengel, “Das entdeckte Geheimnis der Natur, 1793)
    • If someone loves a flower…he can say to himself: “Somewhere, my flower is there….” But if the sheep eats the flower, in one moment all his stars will be darkened…… - Antoine de Saint-Exupery, “The Little Prince” 1943
    • The corolla (except in a very few species) is colored—that is, colored other than green—so that it stands out clearly against the green color of the plants. - Christian Konrad Sprengel, “Das entdeckte Geheimnis der Natur, 1793)
    • Science advances but slowly, with halting steps. But does not therein lie her eternal fascination? And would we not soon tire of her if she were to reveal her ultimate truths too easily? - Karl von Frisch, “A Biologist Remembers,” 1967
    • Rather, one must investigate the flowers in their natural habitat…In brief, one must try to catch Nature in the act. - Christian Konrad Sprengel, “Das entdeckte Geheimnis der Natur, 1793)
    • I do not know what I seem to be to others, but to myself I seem to have been like a boy walking on the seashore, picking up another pebble more beautiful than the one before, while the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me. - Isaac Newton, 1726
    • Nature has neither core Nor shell; She is everything at once. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, “Zur Morphologie,”1820
