Charles Darwin – Owing to this struggle for life

Share this quote:
Charles DarwinOwing to this struggle for life, any variation, however slight and from whatever cause proceeding, if it be in any degree profitable to an individual of any species, in its infinitely complex relations to other organic beings and to external nature, will tend to the preservation of that individual, and will generally be inherited by its offspring. The offspring, also, will thus have a better chance of surviving.

Charles Darwin   (1809-1882)

Edward Abbey – Has joy any survival value in evolution?

Share this quote:
Edward AbbeyHas joy any survival value in the operations of evolution? I suspect that it does; I suspect that the morose and fearful are doomed to quick extinction. Where there is no joy there can be no courage; and without courage all other virtues are useless.

Thomas Henry Huxley – The animal world like a gladiator show

Share this quote:
The animal world is on about the same level as a gladiator’s show. The creatures are fairly well treated, and set to fight — whereby the strongest, the swiftest, and the cunningest live to fight another day. The spectator has no need to turn his thumbs down, as no quarter is given.

Thomas Henry Huxley   (1825-1895)
