Quotation #1

Let's try something new. Every now and then I will be posting a famous quotation from a famous scientist for the single purpose of exposing readers to some scientific history and culture. There's a ton of inspiring writing that is otherwise lost on the science crowd, and I hope to channel some of that here.

"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." -Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man, 1871
