. . . life in its simplest known form is a shapeless blob of rebellious jelly rather than a crystal eternally obeying the most ancient law. . . . Life is rebellious and anarchical, always testing the supposed immutability of the rules which the nonliving changelessly accepts.

Joseph Wood Krutch

Mikhail Bakunin, God and the State
