It is here, perhaps, that in the present state of science we may most reasonably look for extensions of our knowledge ; at all events we are warranted...
Seite 421 - If one plant or animal differs from another, or the parent from the child, it is because in the building-up process the determinations of molecular motion were different in the two cases ; and the true and fundamental ground of the difference must be sought for in the cause of the determination of molecular motion.
