    Blessed be the Lord for the beauty of summer and spring, for the air, the water, the verdure, and the song of birds. - Carl von Linnaeus

    Thanks for the "bump":

    Carl Linnaeus was actually a major historical figure in the history of science, someone maybe as important for the progress of mankind as Copernic before him, or Voltaire, and Darwin later.

    Thank you for picking up.

    What I wanted to point out was that he was also deeply spiritual human being. The quality that is usually overlooked.
