Thought for Friday

snow on the acer tree

No two snowflakes are alike

“Under the microscope, I found that snowflakes were miracles of beauty; and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen and appreciated by others. Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated. When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. Just that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind… I became possessed with a great desire to show people something of this wonderful loveliness, an ambition to become, in some measure, its preserver.”

Wilson ‘Snowflake’ Bentley
