Thought for the Day
“Try to learn something about everything
and everything about something.”
~ Thomas Henry Huxley
(1825 – 1895)
*Thomas Henry Huxley
An English biologist, known as “Darwin’s Bulldog” for his advocacy of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Huxley’s famous 1860 debate with Samuel Wilberforce was a key moment in the wider acceptance of evolution, and in his own career. Huxley had been planning to leave Oxford on the previous day, but, after an encounter with Robert Chambers, the author of Vestiges, he changed his mind and decided to join the debate.
