Born: February 12, 1809

Died: April 19, 1882 (aged 73)

Nationality: English

Occupation: Scientist

Bio: Charles Robert Darwin was an English naturalist. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors, and proposed the scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.

Quote of the day

Sound is naught but broken air, And every speech that is spoken, Loud or privily, foul or fair, In its substance is but air; For as flame is but lighted smoke, So sound is air that is broken.
