Unbehagen in der Natur

Illustration from How to Grow Cabbages and Cauliflowers Most Profitably (1888)

“The insufferable arrogance of human beings to think that Nature was made solely for their benefit, as if it was conceivable that the sun had been set afire merely to ripen men’s apples and head their cabbages.” –Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac (1897)
