Anais Nin Anais Nin was a passionate woman, not only in her works but also in her life. The fact that she lived life to the fullest is what made her books so intriguing. Although her diaries were a chronicle of her experience, her fiction showed the reader sides of her while displaying everyone's innermost desires.

War is a savage and gratuitous evil, war is unnatural, and war is responsible for the destruction of an entire generation.

Where did man come from? Scientists thought they had answered this simple yet complex question through Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. According to him, living organisms evolved due to constant changing. Organisms which gained an edge would reign, while those without would die. Jack London's books during the late 1800's animated this theory through the use of wild animals in a struggle for survival. In fact, many prove that to survive a species must have an edge. In London's book the Ca

As long as the human race has been cultivating the soil, we have had to deal with other vegetation that ends up competing with the crops. People have tried many methods to get rid of these pesky weeds but they always seem to come back. This eventually led to development of pesticides and herbicides. Herbicides allowed people to kill off the unwanted weeds. Over time these herbicides became more and more specialized allowing them to only harm certain weeds as needed such as broad leaf killers. O
