from E. O. Wilson's "Tales from the Ant World". when you find ants in your kitchen, put down some food, watch, and wonder.

@nev His book, “The Diversity of Life” was one of the most influential books I ever read: the right book at the right time. It introduced to me a lot of important concepts that turned my life gently in a different direction and landed me where I am today.
