Change: a salute to Darwin and Lincoln

Today is Charles Darwin’s 200th birthday. It is also Abraham Lincoln’s 200th birthday.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”
--Charles Darwin, English naturalist and author of the theory of evolution by natural selection (1809 – 1882)


“The dogmas of the quiet past, are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise -- with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew.”
Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States (1809 – 1865)
