|German term or phrase: Sentence (quote by Charles Darwin)|
|"Es ist weder die stärkste Spezies, die überlebt, noch die intelligenteste – sondern diejenige, die sich am besten auf Veränderungen einstellt."|
According to my source text, this is a literal quote by Charles Darwin (since I doubt whether Darwin spoke German, obviously, this is a translation).
I have no problem translating the sentence, but would like to use the original quote - does anyone have that quote, or a URL pointing to it?
TIA - Ralf
|English translation:It is not...|
...the strongest species that will survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
Hey, at least I got a chance, then ;)
