Meandering around . . .

Today is the birthday of Gerald ('Gerry') Malcolm Durrell (January 7, 1925 – January 30, 1995), naturalist, zookeeper, conservationist, and author.

"There is no first world and third world. There is only one world, for all of us to live and delight in." - Gerald Durrell

"We have inherited an incredibly beautiful and complex garden, but the trouble is that we have been appallingly bad gardeners..." - Gerald Durrell

"Does a creature have to be of direct material use to mankind in order to exist? By and large, by asking the question what use is it? you are asking the animal to justify its existence without having justified your own." - Gerald Durrell
