Alfred Russell Wallace

British Naturalist, Explorer, Geographer, Anthropologist and Biologist

"Man is, indeed, a being apart, since he is not influenced by the great laws which irresistibly modify all other organic beingsā€¦ Man has not only escaped natural selection himself, but he is actually able to take away some of that power from nature which before his appearance she universally exercised."
