Jane Goodall, a world renowned primatologist and author.

“There are an awful lot of scientists today who
believe that before very long we shall have unraveled all
the secrets of the universe. There will be no puzzles
anymore. To me, it’d be really, really tragic because
I think one of the most exciting things is this feeling of
mystery, feeling of awe, the feeling of looking at a little
live thing and being amazed by it and how it has emerged
through these hundreds of years of evolution and there it
is and it is perfect and why.”
