Famous quotes containing the words editor and/or darwin:

    An editor is someone who separates the wheat from the chaff and then prints the chaff.
    Adlai Stevenson (1900–1965)

    It was at a particular moment in the history of my own rages that I saw the Western world conditioned by the images of Marx, Darwin and Freud; and Marx, Darwin and Freud are the three most crashing bores of the Western world. The simplistic popularization of their ideas has thrust our world into a mental straitjacket from which we can only escape by the most anarchic violence.
    William Golding (b. 1911)
