If the misery of the poor be caused not by the laws of nature, but by our institutions, great is our sin

Hero of many and villain of some, this quote comes from Charles Darwin, he of the evolutionary theory.

Other quotes from Darwin include:

"It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change."

...of course assuming it is responsive in the right ways; and showing that it wasn't him that said 'survival of the fittest'...

"A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life"

...but it's OK, reading a quotations blog must surely count as a very wise investment of time!
