Life is just a mirror, and what you see out there, you must first see inside yourself.
Heredity is nothing but stored environment.
No individual has any right to come into the world and go out of it without leaving something behind.
George Washington Carver
In pain is a new time born.
Adelbert Von Chamisso
It is often said that all the conditions for the first production of a living organism are now present, which could ever have been present. But if (and oh! what a big if!) we could conceive in some warm little pond, with all sorts of ammonia and phosphoric salts, light, heat, electricity, &c., present, that a proteine compound was chemically formed ready to undergo still more complex changes, at the present day such matter would be instantly absorbed, which would not have been the case before living creatures were found.
Charles R Darwin
Only what we have wrought into our character during life can we take away with us.
