Juxtaposed…

“The chess-board is the world; the pieces are the phenomena of the universe; the rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature. The player on the other side is hidden from us. We know that his play is always fair, and patient. But also we know, to our cost, that he never overlooks a mistake, or makes the smallest allowance for ignorance.”

Thomas Henry Huxley, 1825-1895

Robert Frost quote illustrated by Meredith Eliassen, 2015. Caption “Pawny: I’m on my way!” originally based upon concept by R. I. Otterbach.

“How many times did it thunder before Franklin took the hint! How many apples fell on Newton’s head before he took the hint! Nature is always hinting at us. It hints over and over again. And suddenly we take the hint.”

Robert Frost, 1874-1963
