Thomas Henry Huxley – Every animal lives at the expense of another

Share this quote:
Not only does every animal live at the expense of some other animal or plant, but the very plants are at war….The individuals of a species are like the crew of a foundered ship, and none but good swimmers have a chance of reaching the land.

Thomas Henry Huxley   (1825-1895)

Thomas Henry Huxley – The animal world like a gladiator show

Share this quote:
The animal world is on about the same level as a gladiator’s show. The creatures are fairly well treated, and set to fight — whereby the strongest, the swiftest, and the cunningest live to fight another day. The spectator has no need to turn his thumbs down, as no quarter is given.
