Even today a good many distinguished minds seem unable to accept or even to understand that from a source of noise natural selection alone and unaided could have drawn all the music of the biosphere.

No, the other was also the Lighthouse. For nothing was simply one thing. The other Lighthouse was true too.

— Virginia Woolf

Custom is a prison, locked and barred by those who long ago were dust, the keys of which are in the keeping of the dead.

— Robert Green Ingersoll

You are not barred from attaining greatness by heredity. No matter who or what your ancestors may have been or how unlearned or lowly their station, the upward way is open for you.

— Wallace D. Wattles
