Beetles

Here’s a quotation I heard today at a talk on art and social change. I’m not the first to find inspiration from insects:

The biologist J. S. B. Haldane liked to say that if biology had taught him anything about the nature of the Creator, it was that he had “an inordinate fondness for beetles.”

–Carl Zimmer, Evolution: The Triumph of an Idea, p. 198
