No comments

Charles Robert Darwin, FRS FRGS FLS FZS was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”

“The highest possible stage in moral culture is when we recognize that we ought to control our thoughts.”

A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.”

In the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.”

“Man tends to increase at a greater rate than his means of subsistence.”

“The very essence of instinct is that it’s followed independently of reason.”

“A man’s friendships are one of the best measures of his worth.”

“My mind seems to have become a kind of machine for grinding general laws out of large collections of facts.”

“To kill an error is as good a service as, and sometimes even better than, the establishing of a new truth or fact.”

“A moral being is one who is capable of reflecting on his past actions and their motives – of approving of some and disapproving of others.”

“On the ordinary view of each species having been independently created, we gain no scientific explanation.”

“Man is descended from a hairy, tailed quadruped, probably arboreal in its habits.”
