A Quote by George Washington Carver

I believe the Great Creator has put ores and oil on this earth to give us a breathing spell... As we exhaust them, we must be prepared to fall back on our farms, which are God's true storehouse and can never be exhausted. For we can learn to synthesize materials for every human need from the things that grow.

A Quote by George Washington Carver on love and secrets

Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough. Not only have I found that when I talk to the little flower or to the little peanut they will give up their secrets, but I have found that when I silently commune with people they give up their secrets also  if you love them enough.

A Quote by Dr. George Washington Carver on god, knowledge, mystery, and universe

When I was young, I said to God, 'God, tell me the mystery of the universe.' But God answered, 'that knowledge is for me alone.' So I said, 'God, tell me the mystery of the peanut.' Then God said, 'Well, George, that's more nearly your size.'
