“The earthquake, however, must be to every one a most impressive event: the earth, considered from our earliest childhood as the type of solidity, has oscillated like a thin crust beneath our feet; and in seeing the laboured works of man in a moment overthrown, we feel the insignificance of his boasted power.”
― Charles Darwin, Voyage of the Beagle

 

Darwin saw
Man’s greatness
And his weakness
He shined a light
Not only on
Our evolution
But on our true nature
