—  Charles Robert Darwin
The plow is one of the most ancient and most valuable of man's inventions; but long before he existed the land was in fact regularly plowed, and still continues to be thus plowed by earthworms.

—  Charles Robert Darwin
Animals, whom we have made our slaves, we do not like to consider our equal.
—  Charles Robert Darwin
The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.
—  Charles Robert Darwin
From the first dawn of life, all organic beings are found to resemble each other in descending degrees, so that they can be classed in groups under groups. This classification is evidently not arbitrary like the grouping of stars in constellations.
—  Charles Robert Darwin
