Clean then says that man works and nature works are made of the same stuff Zak: i would say that made of and made from are different ideas.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
