Quoteblog of the Day: Part 2

"Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known"

Carl Sagan

"I abide in goodly Museum, 
Frequented by sages profound:
'Tis a kind of strange mausoleum,
Where the beasts that have vanished abound.
There's a bird of the ages Triassic,
With his antediluvian beak,
And many a reptile Jurassic,
And many a monster antique".

May Kendall
 (from 1887 "Ballad of the Ichthyosaurus")
(English poet)

"In vertebrate paleontology, increasing knowledge leads to triumphant loss of clarity"

Alfred S. Romer 
Quote by Keith Thomson

"I want to find a voracious, small-minded predator and name it after the IRS"

Robert T. Bakker

I hope you enjoy these! Some I found at Todayinsci, others from the literature. 

Stay tuned for more bits from the paleoworld!
Happy Earth Day (4/22).
