Quotes
"We must, however, acknowledge, as it seems to me, that man with all his noble qualities... still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin."; "We can allow satellites, planets, suns, universe, nay whole systems of universes, to be governed by laws, but the smallest insect, we wish to be created at once by special act."; "To kill an error is as good a service as, and sometimes even better than, the establishing of a new truth or fact."; "The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference."; "The mystery of the beginning of all things is insoluble by us; and I for one must be content to remain an agnostic.";  …
