George Washington Carver

Datum narození: 1. leden 1864
Datum úmrtí: 5. leden 1943

George Washington Carver byl americký botanik a vynálezce, časopisem Time nazvaný "Černý Leonardo".

Zabýval se především šlechtitelstvím a pěstitelstvím, vyzýval zemědělce na jihu USA, aby přešli k pěstování plodin alternativních k bavlně a snížili tak svou ekonomickou zranitelnost - šlechtil za tím účelem arašídy, sóju či sladké brambory. Vynalézal z těchto plodin také různé sekundární výrobky - od kosmetiky, přes plasty až po nitroglycerin. Jeho výzkum zachránil jih USA poté, co bavlníková monokultura na počátku 20. století zcela vyčerpala místní půdu. Wikipedia

Citáty George Washington Carver

„I know that my Redeemer lives. Thank God I love humanity, complexion doesn't interest me one single a bit.“

—  George Washington Carver

George Washington Carver: In His Own Words http://books.google.es/books?id=JcncXGNSJQQC&hl=es&source=gbs_navlinks_s (1991), edited by Gary R. Kremer, University of Missouri Press, p. 131

„My attitude toward life was also my attitude toward science. Jesus said one must be born again, must become as a little child. He must let no laziness, no fear, no stubbornness keep him from his duty. If he were born again he would see life from such a plane he would have the energy not to be impeded in his duty by these various sidetrackers and inhibitions. My work, my life, must be in the spirit of a little child seeking only to know the truth and follow it. My purpose alone must be God's purpose - to increase the welfare and happiness of His people. Nature will not permit a vacuum. It will be filled with something. Human need is really a great spiritual vacuum which God seeks to fill… With one hand in the hand of a fellow man in need and the other in the hand of Christ, He could get across the vacuum and I became an agent. Then the passage, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me," came to have real meaning. As I worked on projects which fulfilled a real human need forces were working through me which amazed me. I would often go to sleep with an apparently insoluble problem. When I woke the answer was there. Why, then, should we who believe in Christ be so surprised at what God can do with a willing man in a laboratory? Some things must be baffling to the critic who has never been born again.“
