Charles Darwin

English naturalist
That there is much suffering in the world no one disputes. Which is more likely, that pain and evil are the result of an all-powerful and good God, or the product of uncaring natural forces? The presence of much suffering agrees well with the view that all organic beings have been developed through variation and natural selection.More Charles Darwin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
A surprising number [of novels] have been read aloud to me, and I like all if moderately good, and if they do not end unhappily-against which a law ought to be passed.More Charles Darwin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Now when naturalists observe a close agreement in numerous small details of habits, tastes and dispositions between two or more domestic races, or between nearly-allied natural forms, they use this fact as an argument that all are descended from a common progenitor who was thus endowed; and consequently that all should be classed under the same species. The same argument may be applied with much force to the races of man.More Charles Darwin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am not the least afraid to die.More Charles Darwin quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I am not very skeptical... a good deal of skepticism in a scientific man is advisable to avoid much loss of time, but I have met not a few men, who... have often thus been deterred from experiments or observations which would have proven servicable.More Charles Darwin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
