The human species was not born into a market economy. Bees won't sell you honey if you offer them an electronic funds transfer. The human species imagined money into existence, and it exists - for us, not mice or wasps - because we go on believing in it.
Already at the origin of the species man was equal to what he was destined to become.
Aquatic invasive species are destroying the environment, damaging fisheries, and costing American taxpayers billions of dollars annually.
John M. McHugh
Mankind is considered (by the radical environmentalists) the lowest and the meanest of all species and is blamed for everything.
Dixie Lee Ray
Theatre people, who are an adaptive species, know that to remain sane in the process of production where everyone and his uncle has an opinion about how to fix a show, you must pick the people whose knowledge and taste you trust and stick only to these few. The Tweetocracy is no place to look.
I had found again and again that the most aberrant population of a species - often having reached species rank, and occasionally classified even as a separate genus - occurred at a peripheral location, indeed usually at the most isolated peripheral location.
Nature is a collective idea, and, though its essence exist in each individual of the species, can never in its perfection inhabit a single object.
I first began to dry specimens for preservation carelessly perhaps at first, but before the season was over, I had collected between one and two hundred species.
Laughter is one of the very privileges of reason, being confined to the human species.
Biologically the species is the accumulation of the experiments of all its successful individuals since the beginning.
H. G. Wells
Any reading not of a vicious species must be a good substitute for the amusements too apt to fill up the leisure of the labouring classes.
Ants make up two-thirds of the biomass of all the insects. There are millions of species of organisms and we know almost nothing about them.
E. O. Wilson
Nature is indifferent to the survival of the human species, including Americans.
Adlai E. Stevenson
We are a dreadful species indeed, and deserve whatever it is our techno-baubles do to us.
We can continue to learn generation after generation and now is time to begin to learn how to love in a non-discriminatory way because we are intelligent enough, but we are not loving enough as a species.
Thich Nhat Hanh
I think as a species we're not designed to be able to think more than one year into the future - if that. Even trying to imagine one year from now makes most people feel like they've been given a huge boring chunk of homework that's too hard to do.
The way to understand how different species evolved is to think about the niches that they fill in an ecosystem - basically, how they make a living.
Going to Mars would evolve humankind into a two-planet species.
I don't think there was a thunderclap or a divine spark that suddenly made one species smart. You can see, in our ancestors, there was a gradual expansion of the brain; there was an expansion of the complexity of tools.
Is the destiny of the human species to sit back and play with our mouse and computer and imagine, fantasize?
We do a lot of bird-watching up in the country, but we almost never have a chance to people-watch. There simply aren't enough human beings up here: there is nowhere you can park yourself with a cup of coffee and observe the species on parade.
I suggest that going to Mars means permanence on the planet - a mission by which we are building up a confidence level to become a two-planet species.
We're the only species that have crapped up the planet and the only species that can clean it up.
I've always been anti-marriage for men until they become mature. As a species we don't mature until we're in our 60s.
The fin whale is the second largest whale species on Earth, weighing up to 80 tons.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
