Clams and Cement

"It is fun to discover how nature works, to find out, for example, that humans have to make cement at 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit, while a hen can make stronger cement at 103 degrees, and a clam can do still better at the temperature of seawater. What's the trick? We still don't know. If we found out, would we pave everything in sight?" (Excerpt from Let the Mountains Talk, Let the Rivers Run, by David Brower with Steve Chapple, Harper Collins, 1995, pg. 148)
