"We behold the face of nature bright with gladness, we often see superabundance of food; we do not see, or we forget, that the birds which are idly singing round us mostly live on insects or seeds, and are thus constantly destroying life; or we forget how largely these songstress, or their eggs, or their nestlings, are destroyed by birds and beasts of prey; we do not always bear in mind, that though food may be now superabundant, it is not so at all seasons of each recurring year."
The sayings of Isaac Newton 2
I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea-shore and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.

My barnstars and other awardsEdit

  The Barnstar of Awesomeness
(suddenly dropping out of the sky) I just went through your userpage, and found it quite depressing, as I completely disagree to the number of Barnstars and other shiny objects you have. I am ashamed of our collective editor conduct in failing to shower you with appreciation in a volume and frequency that is more mind numbing than a Who performance. Therefore, I humbly present you with my little token: a Barnstar for your allround, wholesome and... simply awesome existence. Proud to have breathed the same air as you.

Thank you for your part in bringing Australasian Antarctic Expedition to the Main page today, in memory of Brian. --Gerda Arendt (talk) 20:11, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

  The Barnstar of Diligence
Thank you so much for your attention on Indian National Congress. Back in time I worked hard to improve the article, asked for editors for copy edit but later article became matter of disputes. I had to give up eventually. I will start working on it again as I can see a ray of hope. I will also make sure it achieves GA status. Thanks again mate. 25 CENTS VICTORIOUS  16:10, 24 May 2020 (UTC)
