A Darwin's Note

Still reading a Biography Darwin's Origin Of Species by Janet Browne as an assignment from one of my lecture. I am stil doubting evolution theory until now, but one chapter of this book, part of darwin's writing quite impressive for me. Here it is :

"It is interesting to contemplate an entangled bank, clothed with many plants of many kinds, with birds singing on the bushes, with various insects flitting about, and with worms crawling through the damp earth, and to reflect that these elaborately constructed forms, so different from each other, and dependent on each other in so complex a manner, have all been produced by laws acting around us... There is a grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few form 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."
