Darwin’s last paragraph

“There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.”

Charles Darwin

The last paragraph of first edition of the Origin of Species.

Published: 24 November 1859

He edited that paragraph in subsequent editions.

He was right the first time.
