Charles Darwin quotes
It is always advisable to perceive clearly our ignorance.
The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.
I have rarely read anything which has interested me more, though I have not read as yet
more than a quarter of the book proper. From quotations which I had seen, I had a high
notion of Aristotle's merits, but I had not the most remote notion what a wonderful man
was. Linnaeus and Cuvier have been my two gods, though in very different ways, but they
were mere schoolboys to old Aristotle.
If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed, which could not possibly have
been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break
down. But I can find no such case.
