George Washington Carver - a short biography online

Quotes and comments;
- you might have to scroll down the page.
- George Washington Carver: 1864 - 1943 (A great scientist, inventor, creationist and christian.)
- an inspiring story for young and old.

1. 'As he would tell the story later, he went out to pray (as was his daily practice), and asked God why He made the universe. The Lord replied that was a mighty big question for a puny man. Carver tried a smaller question, why did you make man? As God kept narrowing the scope of his inquiry, he finally tried, “Mr. Creator, why did you make the peanut?” With that, the Lord was satisfied, and told him to go into his lab and find out.'
- and he discovered and invented about 300 ways to use the peanut. (And this was just one of the plants he eventually worked with.)
- I think too many of us spend too much time asking the huge questions, and ignoring the smaller questions.
