    Best Christmas gifts

    The best thing to give your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.Francis Maitland Balfour. Balfour was considered the greatest biologist of his day, the founder of evolutionary embryology and the successor to Darwin. But his career and work had barely begun when his life was cut short. Recovering from an attack of typhoid fever, he went to the Swiss alps to regain his health. He died attempting to climb unscaled Mont Blanc. He was 31. His death and that of colleague W.K. Clark, were “the greatest lost to science in our time,” said British scientist T.H. Huxley.
