Famous quotes containing the words living and/or species:

    When Man evolved Pity, he did a queer thing—deprived himself of the power of living life as it is without wishing it to become something different.
    John Galsworthy (1867–1933)

    As kings are begotten and born like other men, it is to be presumed that they are of the human species; and perhaps, had they the same education, they might prove like other men. But, flattered from their cradles, their hearts are corrupted, and their heads are turned, so that they seem to be a species by themselves.... Flattery cannot be too strong for them; drunk with it from their infancy, like old drinkers, they require dreams.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
