Quote by Horace Russell
The farther west he went the more he was convinced that the wise men came from the east.
This quote suggests that as the person traveled westward, they encountered more evidence to support the idea that the wisest individuals, or "wise men", originated in the east. The implication is that the eastern region cultivated a culture or tradition that produced wise individuals, contrasting with the comparatively less wise perception of individuals found in the west. This could be interpreted as a reflection of a particular bias or stereotype associating wisdom with the eastern part of the world.
It is critical to develop a biofuel industry powered by feedstocks produced in every corner of the country, in addition to the Midwest. That is why USDA has established five regional research centers working on science necessary to ensure profitable biofuels can be produced from a diverse range of feedstocks.
