My Year of Darwin 10/3/2014: The grandiose nature of natural selection

 Charles Darwin

"Under nature, the slightest differences of structure or constitution may well turn the nicely balanced scale in the struggle for life, and so be preserved. How fleeting are the wishes and efforts of man! how short his time! and consequently how poor will be his results, compared with those accumulated by Nature during whole geological periods." Charles Darwin, Origin of Species 2nd edition
