The evolutionary epic is ... the best myth we will ever have.  (E O Wilson Quotes) I want us to save the creation-not just care about it, but to save it  (E O Wilson Quotes) True character arises from a deeper well than religion  (E O Wilson Quotes) Theology made no provision for evolution  (E O Wilson Quotes) Well, let me tell you, ants are the dominant insects. They make up as much as a quarter of the biomass of all insects in the world. They are the principal predators. They’re the cemetery workers  (E O Wilson Quotes) No species... possesses a purpose beyond the imperatives created by genetic history... The human mind is a device for survival and reproduction, and reason is just one of its various techniques  (E O Wilson Quotes) We need freedom to roam across land owned by no one but protected by all, whose unchanging horizon is the same that bounded the world of our millennial ancestors  (E O Wilson Quotes) Be prepared mentally for some amount of chaos and failure. Waste and frustration often attend the earliest stages  (E O Wilson Quotes) To search for unasked questions, plus questions to put to already acquired but unsought answers, it is vital to give full play to the imagination. That is the way to create truly original science  (E O Wilson Quotes) I will argue that every scrap of biological diversity is priceless, to be learned and cherished, and never to be surrendered without a struggle  (E O Wilson Quotes) Human beings function better if they are deceived by their genes into thinking that there is a disinterested objective morality binding upon them, which all should obey  (E O Wilson Quotes) The brain and its satellite glands have now been probed to the point where no particular site remains that can reasonably be supposed to harbor a nonphysical mind  (E O Wilson Quotes) We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom. The world henceforth will be run by synthesizers, people able to put together the right information at the right time, think critically about it, and make important choices wisely  (E O Wilson Quotes) You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give  (E O Wilson Quotes) If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos  (E O Wilson Quotes) If those committed to the quest fail, they will be forgiven. When lost, they will find another way. The moral imperative of humanism is the endeavor alone, whether successful or not, provided the effort is honorable and failure memorable  (E O Wilson Quotes) The essence of humanity’s spiritual dilemma is that we evolved genetically to accept one truth and discovered another. Is there a way to erase the dilemma, to resolve the contradictions between the transcendentalist and the empiricist world views?  (E O Wilson Quotes) The one process now going on that will take millions of years to correct is the loss of genetic and species diversity by the destruction of natural habitats. This is the folly our descendants are least likely to forgive us  (E O Wilson Quotes) Real biologists who actually do the research will tell you that they almost never find a phenomenon, no matter how odd or irrelevant it looks when they first see it, that doesn’t prove to serve a function. The outcome itself may be due to small accidents of evolution  (E O Wilson Quotes) When you get into the whole field of exploring, probably 90 percent of the kinds of organisms, plants, animals and especially microorganisms and tiny invertebrate animals are unknown. Then you realize that we live on a relatively unexplored plan  (E O Wilson Quotes) The time has come to link ecology to economic and human development. When you have seen one ant, one bird, one tree, you have not seen them all. What is happening to the rain forests of Madagascar and Brazil will affect us all  (E O Wilson Quotes) From the freedom to explore comes the joy of learning. From knowledge acquired by personal initiative arises the desire for more knowledge. And from mastery of the novel and beautiful world awaiting every child comes self-confidence  (E O Wilson Quotes) In science, you really do need to have a purpose-driven life. You will succeed to the extent that you get the most out of your career so that you can give the most back. Try to be an addict, driven to achieve discoveries, learning new things, and then writing about them  (E O Wilson Quotes) Darwin’s dice have rolled badly for Earth. The human species is, in a word, an environmental abnormality. Perhaps a law of evolution is that intelligence usually extinguishes itself  (E O Wilson Quotes) The newborn infant is now seen to be wired with awesome precision... This marvelous robot will be launched into the world under the care of its parents... But to what extent does the wiring of the neurons, so undeniably encoded in the genes, preordain the directions that social development will follow?  (E O Wilson Quotes) By any reasonable measure of achievement, the faith of the Enlightenment thinkers in science was justified. Today the greatest divide within humanity is not between races, or religions, or even, as is widely believed, between the literate and illiterate. It is the chasm that separates scientific from prescientific cultures  (E O Wilson Quotes) [T]he true natural sciences lock together in theory and evidence to form the ineradicable technical base of modern civilization. The pseudosciences satisfy personal psychological needs... but lack the ideas or the means to contribute to the technical base  (E O Wilson Quotes) We exist in a bizarre combination of Stone Age emotions, medieval beliefs, and god-like technology  (E O Wilson Quotes) The beginning of wisdom, as the Chinese say, is calling things by their right names  (E O Wilson Quotes) The biological evolutionary perception of life and of human qualities is radically different from that of traditional religion, whether it’s Southern Baptist or Islam or any religion that believes in a supernatural supervalance over humanity.  (E O Wilson Quotes)
