On the Origin of Species

by Charles Darwin


'But with regard to the material world, we can at least go so far as this--
we can perceive that events are brought about not by insulated
interpositions of Divine power, exerted in each particular case, but by the
establishment of general laws.'

W. Whewell: Bridgewater Treatise.



'To conclude, therefore, let no man out of a weak conceit of sobriety, or
an ill-applied moderation, think or maintain, that a man can search too far
or be too well studied in the book of God's word, or in the book of God's
works; divinity or philosophy; but rather let men endeavour an endless
progress or proficience in both.'

Bacon: Advancement of Learning.

Down, Bromley, Kent, 

October 1st, 1859.
