A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on colors, deals, good, and science

BOTANY, n. The science of vegetables - those that are not good to eat, as well as those that are. It deals largely with their flowers, which are commonly badly designed, inartistic in color, and ill- smelling.

Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914)
