Let us investigate more closely this property common to animal and plant, this power of producing its likeness, this chain of successive existences of individuals, which constitutes the real existence of the species. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
The sublime can only be found in the great subjects. Poetry, history and philosophy all have the same object, and a very great object - Man and Nature. Philosophy describes and depicts Nature. Poetry paints and embellishes it. It also paints men, it aggrandizes them, it exaggerates them, it creates heroes and gods. History only depicts man, and paints him such as he is. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Speaking one day to Monsieur de Buffon, on the present ardor of chemical inquiry, he affected to consider chemistry but as cookery, and to place the toils of the laboratory on the footing with those of the kitchen. I think it, on the contrary, among the most useful of sciences, and big with future discoveries for the utility and safety of the human race. ~ Thomas Jefferson
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Thomas Jefferson
{On to contributions to evolutionary biology of 18th century French scientist, Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon}

He was not an evolutionary biologist, yet he was the father of evolutionism. He was the first person to discuss a large number of evolutionary problems, problems that before Buffon had not been raised by anybody.... he brought them to the attention of the scientific world.

Except for Aristotle and Darwin, no other student of organisms [whole animals and plants] has had as far-reaching an influence.

He brought the idea of evolution into the realm of science. He developed a concept of the "unity of type", a precursor of comparative anatomy. More than anyone else, he was responsible for the acceptance of a long-time scale for the history of the earth. He was one of the first to imply that you get inheritance from your parents, in a description based on similarities between elephants and mammoths. And yet, he hindered evolution by his frequent endorsement of the immutability of species. He provided a criterion of species, fertility among members of a species, that was thought impregnable. ~ Ernst W. Mayr
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Ernst W. Mayr
Although the works of the Creator may be in themselves all equally perfect, the animal is, as I see it, the most complete work of nature, and man is her masterpiece. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
There is nothing good in love but the physical part. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
My junior year, I was in a play at school and five days before opening night, I still didn't know my lines. Opening night was a disaster. I was so embarrassed. The director made me work backstage for the rest of the performance. ~ Katie Leclerc
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Katie Leclerc
I am convinced, by repeated observation, that marbles, lime-stones, chalks, marls, clays, sand, and almost all terrestrial substances, wherever situated, are full of shells and other spoils of the ocean. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
I have a condition called Menieres disease which is a problem with fluid retention in the inner ear. It has four symptoms: ringing in the ear, pressure in the ear, fluctuating hearing loss, and attacks of vertigo. ~ Katie Leclerc
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Katie Leclerc
The human mind cannot create anything. It produces nothing until having been fertilized by experience and meditation; its acquisitions are the germs of its production. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Hold on; hold fast; hold out. Patience is genius. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
All the work of the crystallographers serves only to demonstrate that there is only variety everywhere where they suppose uniformity ... that in nature there is nothing absolute, nothing perfectly regular. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Let us suppose, that the Old and New worlds were formerly but one continent, and that, by a violent earthquake, the ancient Atalantis [sic] of Plato was sunk ... The sea would necessarily rush in from all quarters, and form what is now called the Atlantic ocean. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
For the little that one has reflected on the origin of our knowledge, it is easy to perceive that we can acquire it only by means of comparison. That which is absolutely incomparable is wholly incomprehensible. God is the only example that we could give here. He cannot be comprehended, because he cannot be compared. But all which is susceptible of comparison, everything that we can perceive by different aspects, all that we can consider relatively, can always be judged according to our knowledge. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Only well-written works will descend to posterity. Fulness of knowledge, interesting facts, even useful inventions, are no pledge of immortality, for they may be employed by more skilful hands; they are outside the man; the style is the man himself. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
To be and to think are one and the same for us. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
It's really important to be active in your community, whatever community that is ... find allies and find people who you relate to and who make you stronger as a group. ~ Katie Leclerc
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Katie Leclerc
He [man] abuses equally other animals and his own species, the rest of whom live in famine, languish in misery, and work only to satisfy the immoderate appetite and the still more insatiable vanity of this human being who, destroying others by want, destroys himself by excess. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
To write well is to think well, to feel well, and to render well; it is to possess at once intellect, soul, and taste. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
There were times when he confronted his own image as a man confronts an empty valley, and the vision propelled him forward again to experience as despair compels us to extinction. Sometimes he was like a man in flight, but running toward the enemy, desperate to feel upon his vanishing body the blows that would prove his being; desperate to imprint upon his sad conformity the mark of real purpose, desperate perhaps, as Leclerc had hinted, to abdicate his conscience in order to discover God. ~ John Le Carre
Vonny Leclerc quotes by John Le Carre
Genius is simply patience carried to the extreme. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
In Ireland, there are the same fossils, the same shells and the same sea bodies, as appear in America, and some of them are found in no other part of Europe. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Outside of the usual bar or nightclub, it's not every day that I get a drink bought for me-at least not by strangers and certainly not on a workday. On that Saturday, in September 2010, it was from three separate individuals. ~ Jason Leclerc
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Jason Leclerc
Nature is the system of laws established by the Creator for the existence of things and for the succession of creatures. Nature is not a thing, because this thing would be everything. Nature is not a creature, because this creature would be God. But one can consider it as an immense vital power, which encompasses all, which animates all, and which, subordinated to the power of the first Being, has begun to act only by his order, and still acts only by his concourse or consent ... Time, space and matter are its means, the universe its object, motion and life its goal. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
In my normal life, I do not speak with an accent. It's harder for people to realize my hearing loss in everyday life. ~ Katie Leclerc
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Katie Leclerc
Writing well is at one and the same time good thinking, good feeling, and good expression; it is having wit, soul, and taste, all together. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
The cat is the only animal which accepts the comforts but rejects the bondage of domesticity. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon

Vonny Leclerc quotes by Anthony Burgess
The style is the man himself ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
I wasn't sold on 3-D until it was in my own home. The images jump out at you, even more so than in the theater, because you're in tighter quarters and you're closer to the TV, so it feels like the depth is very dramatic. ~ Katie Leclerc
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Katie Leclerc
Style supposes the reunion and the exercise of all the intellectual faculties. The style is the man. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Only those works which are well-written will pass to posterity: the amount of knowledge, the uniqueness of the facts, even the novelty of the discoveries are no guarantees of immortality ... These things are exterior to a man but style is the man himself. ~ Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
Vonny Leclerc quotes by Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte De Buffon
In the deaf community, in order to play a role of someone with a hearing loss ... you have to have hearing loss. ~ Katie Leclerc
