Famous Anecdote Quotes

A famous anecdote concerning Cuvier involves the tale of his visitation from the devil—only it was not the devil but one of his students dressed up with horns on his head and shoes shaped like cloven hooves. This frightening apparition burst into Cuviers bedroom when he was fast asleep and claimed: Wake up thou man of catastrophes. I am the Devil. I have come to devour you! Cuvier studied the apparition carefully and critically said, I doubt whether you can. You have horns and hooves. You eat only plants.
— Georges Cuvier —
