The Ant is Superior to Man!


"Many people nowadays are apt to boast of our great civilization and of the wonders of science. Science has indeed done wonders. But...it is well to remember that in many ways man has not made very great progress from the other animals. It may be that in certain ways some animals are superior to him still. We look down upon the insects as almost the lowest of living things, and yet these tiny things have learnt the art of cooperation and of sacrifice for the common good far better than man. If mutual cooperation and sacrifice for the good of society are the tests of civilization, we may say that the White Ant and the Ant are in this respect superior to man." - Jawaharlal Nehru

"Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise." (Prov.6:6)
