Happy Darwin day
Charles Robert Darwin was born on this day in 1809... to celebrate I had a little lie in (nice) Then I cut and paste my favourite little quote from his best work below, grandeur indeed..
“Thus, from the war of nature, from famine and death, the most exalted object which we are capable of conceiving, namely, the production of the higher animals, directly follows. There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”
