Quotations by Georges Buffon


... all the work of the crystallographers serves only to demonstrate that there is only one variety everywhere where they suppose uniformity ... that in nature there is nothing absolute, nothing perfectly regular.
Histoire Naturelle des Minéraux

Never think that God's delays are God's denials. Hold on; hold fast; hold out. Patience is genius.
