Biology Quotations

In my school, the brightest boys did math and physics, the less bright did physics and chemistry, and the least bright did biology. I wanted to do math and physics, but my father made me do chemistry because he thought there would be no jobs for mathematicians.
Stephen Hawking

Biology is the study of complicated things that have the appearance of having been designed with a purpose.
Richard Dawkins

Science is beautiful when it makes simple explanations of phenomena or connections between different observations. Examples include the double helix in biology and the fundamental equations of physics.
Stephen Hawking

A universe with a God would look quite different from a universe without one. A physics, a biology where there is a God is bound to look different. So the most basic claims of religion are scientific. Religion is a scientific theory.
Richard Dawkins

Biology is the science. Evolution is the concept that makes biology unique.
Jared Diamond
