Arnold and the Origin of Species


“‘Our ancestor was a hairy quadruped, with pointed ears and a tail, probably arboreal in habit.’ This is very possibly true and in any case how could I dispute the point? But regarding this poor chap, this hairy quadruped, with pointed ears and a tail, there must have been something in him that inclined him to Greek!”

– Matthew Arnold
