- For The School of Life, our single most important move is acceptance. There is no need - on top of everything else - to be anxious that we are anxious. Mood is no sign that our lives have gone wrong, merely that we are alive. A calm life isn’t one that’s always perfectly serene. It is one where we are committed to calming down more readily, where we strive for more realistic expectations; where we can understand better why certain problems are occurring, we can be adept at finding a consoling perspective. The progress is limited and imperfect, but genuine.

There is no recipe for living that suits all cases - Carl Jung

Cary Fowler: "We can't solve any of the world's problems without crop diversity." Don't endow a museum in NY, endow wheat in Svalbard. -- bupbin (from TED2009, Oxford)
Biodiversity underpins ecosystem services. Bees can't pollinate, nor can trees store carbon, if they have all died. Diverse systems are better at capturing carbon, storing water and preserving fisheries. Just how diverse an ecosystem has to be in order to supply the goods and services needed by man is a matter of debate - a debate made harder by the fact that many species may have uses that man has not yet found - The Economist, 2008
