The Frog Remains

“Theories come and theories go, the frog remains.”

 biologist Jean Rostand
 quoted by Jerome Kagan  in On Being Human: Why Mind Matters 

While some local rivers reach flood stage after several more days of rain, nearby creeks are full and even at this distance the evening vibrates with the sound of frogs.  (Though not as exotic looking as this one, I expect.)  It reminds me of falling asleep in my grandmother's house to the sound of frogs in the bog past the railroad tracks... But of course the quote is about more than frogs...
