Fractals are indeed found everywhere in nature, even in music, as late Hungarian composer Gyorgy Ligeti states:

Yes, fractals are what I want to find in my music.


(Gyorgy Ligeti)



An interesting take on the beauty of this vegetable comes from famous American humorist, lecturer and writer Mark Twain:

Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.


(Mark Twain)
