The following are quotes:
- “Biologists who have used energy for budget-sheet accounting in biological processes must learn that the bomb calorimeter does not give the energy value of a high-quality substance. The ‘energy value’ of a person is much more than the heat content when he is burned.”
- — Howard T. Odum (1976), Energy Basis for Man and Nature (pg. 3) 
- “Life I think is still think is a useful term, in the same way that we have plants and animals. We’ve used it so often, it’s probably a good thing to keep using that as a term? What are some of the consequences of thinking this way? Is ‘life’ worthless, because we don’t think it’s any different from ‘non-life’? I don’t think so. If you were building a fireplace, and you were building a fire, and somebody gave you a Stradivarius violin, I don’t think you would throw it on the fire?”
