The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.What is fog but a cloud that lacks the will to fly? -- Bill Bryson, author (1951 - ) Today's quotable is taken from Bryson's Aventis Prize winning book, A Short History of Nearly Everything, which he wrote "because he was presented in school with facts, but no one explained how people came to know the things he learned. So he tried to find out how people knew what the interior of the earth looks like. During this research he found out strange facts about scientists and their research; Thus, instead of just giving the reader facts and figures, Bryson discusses topics from a unique angle unseen in most science books."
