“Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution.”
Theodosius Dobzhansky

“The evolution of life, and the evolutionary origin of mankind, are scientifically established as firmly and completely as any historical event not witnessed by human observers. Any concession to anti-evolutionists, suggesting that there are scientific reasons to doubt the facticity of evolution, would be propagating a plain untruth.”
Theodosius Grigorievich Dobzhansky

“Nature's stern discipline enjoins mutual help at least as often as warfare. The fittest may also be the gentlest.”
Theodosius Dobzhansky, Mankind Evolving: The Evolution of the Human Species
