Quote of the Day
We live in a dancing matrix of viruses; they dart, rather like bees, from organism to organism, from plant to insect to mammal to me and back again, and into the sea, tugging along pieces of this genome, strings of genes from that, transplanting grafts of DNA, passing around heredity as though at a great party.
Acceptance of one's life has nothing to do with resignation; it does not mean running away from the struggle. On the contrary, it means accepting it as it comes, with all the handicaps of heredity, of suffering, of psychological complexes and injustices.
We know from our clinical experience in the practice of medicine that in diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, the individual and his background of heredity are just as important, if not more so, as the disease itself.
Paul Dudley White
Heredity provides for the modification of its own machinery.
James Mark Baldwin
Heredity is what sets the parents of a teenager wondering about each other.
Laurence J. Peter
Our character is not so much the product of race and heredity as of those circumstances by which nature forms our habits, by which we are nurtured and live.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Life consists not simply in what heredity and environment do to us but in what we make out of what they do to us.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
Here he tells us that the new birth is first of all 'not of blood'. You don't get it through the blood stream, through heredity. Your parents can give you much, but they cannot give you this.
E. Stanley Jones
We do not know, in most cases, how far social failure and success are due to heredity, and how far to environment. But environment is the easier of the two to improve.
John B. S. Haldane
The man of the future may, and even must, do things impossible in the past and acquire new motor variations not given by heredity.
G. Stanley Hall
Both of these branches of evolutionary science, are, in my opinion, in the closest causal connection; this arises from the reciprocal action of the laws of heredity and adaptation.
For me, ancestry is just one thing that connects us to people, and feeling connected to other people is generally a good thing, as long as one kind of connection does not have primacy over all the others. Heredity, race and nationhood are not the best criteria by which to judge our fellow humans.
Of course, I also attribute some of my hearing loss to being in the infantry in World War II. It's probably a combination of heredity and noise exposure.
Heredity is nothing but stored environment.
Tobacco, UV rays, viruses, heredity, and age are the main causes of cancer.
Harold E. Varmus
Freedom was conditioned by man's physical body, heredity, and environment.
