There was a 4.4 earthquake near here this morning, but this quote came randomly from the quote file.

Random quote of the day:

“Geology has joined biology in lowering mankind’s self-esteem. Geology suggests how mankind’s existence is contingent on the geological consent of the planet. Although the planet is hospitable for the moment, it is indifferent—eventually it will be lethally indifferent—to its human passengers.”

—George Will, Jewish World Review, May 22, 2003, reviewing Simon Winchester’s Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded
