“Let us weep in our darkness, but weep not for him!

Not for him who has died full of honor and years!
Not for him who ascended Fame's ladder so high:
From the round at the top he has stepped to the sky.”

To test the bat's echolocation system, we removed sources of light, mimicking a very dark night, when bats would rely completely on sonar to forage for food.”
“It's certain in life that on ocassion we will fail. Fall from the graces of others and be unable to see a forest's edge. But as certain as the darkness, is the light God will bring again. Our job is to prepare for it.”
