Adapted from Rackham Holt, George Washington Carver
George Washington Carver, the scientist who developed hundreds of useful products from the peanut: "When I was young, I said to God, &ls;God, tell me the mystery of the universe.' But God answered, &ls;That knowledge is reserved for me alone.' So I said, &ls;God, tell me the mystery of the peanut.' Then God said, &ls;Well, George, that's more nearly your size.' And he told me."
