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.


Charles Darwin

English natural scientist who formulated a theory of evolution by natural selection (1809-1882)

    hay grandeza en esta visión de la vida, con sus diversos poderes, habiendo sido originalmente inspirada en algunas formas o en una; y que, si bien este planeta ha seguido su ciclo de acuerdo con la ley de gravedad fija, desde un principio tan simple, las formas infinitas más bellas y maravillosas han evolucionado y se están desarrollando.

    जीवन के इस दृष्टिकोण में भव्यता है, इसकी कई शक्तियों के साथ, मूल रूप से कुछ रूपों में या एक में सांस ली गई है; और यह कि, जब तक कि यह ग्रह गुरुत्वाकर्षण के निश्चित नियम के अनुसार साइकिल चला गया है, तब से एक सरल अंतहीन रूप सबसे सुंदर और सबसे अद्भुत रहा है, और विकसित किया जा रहा है।
