Dagens citat

"A newcomer to the region today will not experience the landscape in a different way from a traveller half a century ago. ... The Krafla fires were only one episode in a never-ending geological process. ... I was amazed by how fast moss could grow in a new volcanic crater. ... Never before or since have I encountered such wild thyme blossom."

Geologen Oddur Sigurðsson i BBC om vulkanutbrottet vid Krafla mellan 1975 och 1984.
