"Man is a singular creature. He has a set of gifts that make him unique among the animals: so that, unlike them, he is not a figure in the landscape, -- he is a shaper of the landscape." #QotD


"Man is a singular creature. He has a set of gifts that make him unique among the animals: so that, unlike them, he is not a figure in the landscape, -- he is a shaper of the landscape. In body and mind he is the explorer of nature, the ubiquitous animal, who did not find but at made his home in every environment."  
      ~ Jacob Bronowksi, from his book Ascent of Man .
