Famous quotes containing the word skinner:

    It is disturbing to discover in oneself these curious revelations of the validity of the Darwinian theory. If it is true that we have sprung from the ape, there are occasions when my own spring appears not to have been very far.
    —Cornelia Otis Skinner (1901–1979)
