Donald Culross Peattie Quote
Of our windows on the universe, science is set with the clearest pane; it is not warped or waved to make the images appear to support any dogma; the glass is not rose-tinted, neither is it leaded with a picture that shuts out the sun and, coming between the light of day and you, enforces the credence of the past upon the young present.
Flowering Earth, Chapter 18 (p. 244), G.P. Putnam's Sons. 1939
