On the Origin of Species - Charles Darwin

These pictures were taken in Paris in 2008.

Charles Darwin was an English naturalist, geologist, biologist and author.
On the Origin of Species was first published in England in 1859.

"Man is descended from a hairy, tailed quadruped, probably arboreal in its habits."

"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."
"It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change."

P.S. Luis, esta é para ti!
