Indeed, I was unable to find any evidence whatsoever
by Ernst Mayr

Indeed, I was unable to find any evidence whatsoever
of the occurrence of a drastic evolutionary acceleration
and genetic reconstruction in widespread,
populous species.
- Ernst Mayr

New gene pools are generated in every generation,
and evolution takes place because the successful individuals
produced by these gene pools give rise to the next generation.
- Ernst Mayr

I did not claim that speciation occurs only in founder populations.
- Ernst Mayr

I was offered in the Linnean Society that was the most
important thing in my life.

- Ernst Mayr

Most of them are doomed to rapid extinction,
but a few may make evolutionary inventions,
such as physiological, ecological, or behavioral innovations
that give these species improved competitive potential.
- Ernst Mayr

As a consequence, geneticists described evolution simply
as a change in gene frequencies in populations,
totally ignoring the fact that evolution consists of
the two simultaneous but quite separate phenomena of
adaptation and diversification.
- Ernst Mayr

The major novelty of my theory was its claim that the
most rapid evolutionary change does not occur in widespread,
populous species, as claimed by Most geneticists,
but in small founder populations.
- Ernst Mayr

Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world.

In all circumstances I acknowledge this,

- Mary Anne Radmacher

It gives me great pleasure indeed to see the stubbornness
of an incorrigible nonconformist warmly acclaimed.
- Albert Einstein

AN INSPIRED LIFE: I HAVE A CHOICE
My key to living an inspired life involves
Embracing my history,
Understanding the function of expectations
and gently learning to have none;
Recognizing the power of attentive and conscious choices.
In all circumstances I acknowledge this,
IN ALL THINGS AND ALL WAYS, I HAVE CHOICE.
My choice resides in my perspective.
While I certainly do not control climate
and markets and roadways and others,
I do control myself and my response
to all those circumstances. I do indeed.
- Mary Anne Radmacher

between the genius and his human qualities
that one has to ask oneself whether
a little less talent might not have been better.

Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That's why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
- Sheri Rosenthal

It is above them and not contrary to them.

enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you
to the threshold of your mind.
- Khalil Gibran

Let children walk with Nature,
let them see the beautiful blendings
and communions of death and life,
their joyous inseparable unity,
as taught in woods and meadows,
plains and mountains and streams
of our blessed star,
and they will learn that death
is stingless indeed,
and as beautiful as life.
- John Muir

Lovers may be and indeed generally are enemies,
but they never can be friends, because there must always
be a spice of jealousy and a something of Self in all their speculations.
- George Byron

The fastest way to break the cycle of perfectionism
and become a fearless is mother is to give up the idea of doing it perfectly -
indeed to embrace uncertainty and imperfection.

Indeed this is quite a popular pastime.
