"Nature always wins."

I don't know if I made that up or not, but it's a motto that frequently pushes itself into my mind. We are but dust motes in the grand scheme of things.

If there is one thing the history of evolution has taught us it's that life will not be contained. Life breaks free, expands to new territory, and crashes through barriers, painfully, maybe even dangerously.

Thanks jeny, it never ceases to amaze me when you see a small tree/weed or flower sprouting up from a place which looks completely inhospitable
