Quote of the Day
A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don't function as we were meant to. We break. We fall apart. We numb. We ache. We hurt others. We get sick.
So in my freshman year at the University of Alabama, learning the literature on evolution, what was known about it biologically, just gradually transformed me by taking me out of literalism and increasingly into a more secular, scientific view of the world.
E. O. Wilson

Biologically speaking, if something bites you it's more likely to be female.
Culture is not a biologically transmitted complex.
The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is a unique and biologically special place that should be preserved.
The most beautiful as well as the most ugly inclinations of man are not part of a fixed biologically given human nature, but result from the social process which creates man.
Each child is biologically required to have a mother. Fatherhood is a well-regarded theory, but motherhood is a fact.
P. J. O'Rourke
I wanted to explore cancer not just biologically, but metaphorically. The idea that tuberculosis in the 19th century possessed the same kind of frightening and decaying quality was very interesting to me, and it seemed that one could explore the idea that every age defined its own illness.
Thus, biologically speaking the American people are literally only half an immigrant people.
Samuel P. Huntington
Biologically inspired materials could revolutionize materials science. People looking at spider silk and abalone shells are looking for new ways to make materials better, cheaper, and with less toxic byproducts.
Biologically the species is the accumulation of the experiments of all its successful individuals since the beginning.
H. G. Wells
We really are creatures of a violent world, biologically speaking - watching violence and learning about it is one of our cognitive drives.
Chemically speaking or biologically, we research things, but we don't know half of them. We only know our half of it - symbolically - and we don't know ourselves more than half.
Biologically, I'm lucky - an angular face and dark colouring which shows up well on camera.
That's why I wrote this book: to show how these people can imbue us with hope. I read somewhere that when a person takes part in community action, his health improves. Something happens to him or to her biologically. It's like a tonic.
I had become monomaniacal about DNA only in 1951 when I had just turned 23 and as a postdoctoral fellow was temporarily in Naples attending a small May meeting on biologically important macromolecules.
James D. Watson
I find the question of whether gender differences are biologically determined or socially constructed to be deeply disturbing.
As comfortable as I was with my adoption, the nature-versus-nurture question has been a big one for me. I adore my parents, but I always wondered if I would feel a different kind of love-not more or less, just different-for someone who was biologically related.
I think biologically we are attracted to more than one person, but given society and our needs, monogamy works better.

It's unfortunate biologically we have to sleep.

I like New York because you're kind of forced to smell everybody else's funk. So it keeps you biologically attached to the world around you.
Congo has vast stands of biologically important forests as well as remote areas still waiting to be explored, yet we have very few botanists. I'm working to expand training for young students and inspire a new generation to make discoveries, spread the word about conservation, and increase protected areas throughout our country.
