Friday Quote - Charles Darwin

"It is interesting to contemplate a tangled bank, clothed with many plants of many kinds, with birds singing on the bushes, with various insects flitting about, and with worms crawling through the damp earth, and to reflect that these elaborately constructed forms, so different from each other, and dependent upon each other in so complex a manner, have all been produced by laws acting around us.

"I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created parasitic wasps with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars."

- Charles Darwin

The man who broke the greatest mysteries, always remains as a mystery for me. Charles Darwin, how in a situation like that a man can come out with such a great idea. I adore, I follow, I wonder, and of all I greatly envy this man. He is "One but a freak"
