Adaptation Quotations

Whatever there be of progress in life comes not through adaptation but through daring. - Henry Miller
Whatever there be of progress in life comes not through adaptation but through daring.
Henry Miller

In the game of life, less diversity means fewer options for change. Wild or domesticated, panda or pea, adaptation is the requirement for survival.
Cary Fowler

The true basis of morality is utility; that is, the adaptation of our actions to the promotion of the general welfare and happiness; the endeavour so to rule our lives that we may serve and bless mankind.
Annie Besant

Tom Hiddleston

I increasingly fear that nothing good can come of almost any adaptation, and obviously that's sweeping. There are a couple of adaptations that are perhaps as good or better than the original work. But the vast majority of them are pointless.
Alan Moore
