Human subtlety will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does Nature, because in her inventions, nothing is lacking and nothing is superfluous.– Leonardo da Vinci

  1. The student of science in me disagrees. It is to imply that everything good has already been done, everything beautiful already been designed- by nature, and all that we can do is copy it.
    We can’t be that helpless. Human mind can work wonders…
    What do you think ?

    1. That would be an endless debate. Ofcourse, I do agree with you that the human mind can work wonders. But, it would be like appreciating a naturally beautiful blue eyes of a lady vs that of one wearing blue colored contact lenses.

      1. I second that. Endless debate it is 🙂
        Had a weird discussion some time back with my mother, and ,she who studied child psychology ( though I do not really qualify being a child now 😦 ), she was of the opinion that I am young and this is what one can expect from me 🙂
