‘I almost made up my mind

to begin collecting all the

insects which I could find

dead, for on consulting my

sister I concluded that it was

not right to kill insects for the

sake of making a collection.’

‘I was led to attend closely to

several branches of natural

history, thus my powers of

observation were improved.’

(Darwin aged about 9 or 10)

How Darwin worked - in his own words

Unit 1

How Darwin worked - in his own words

‘When on board the H.M.S.

'Beagle' as naturalist, I was

much struck with certain facts

in the distribution of the

organic beings inhabiting

South America, and in the

geological relations of the

present to the past inhabitants

of that continent.’

(Darwin aged 23-28)

How Darwin set about writing

‘After five years work [after the

Beagle voyage] I allowed

myself to speculate on the

subject, and drew up some

short notes; these I enlarged

in 1844 into a sketch of the

conclusions, which then

seemed to me probable: from

that period to the present day

I have steadily pursued the

same object.’

(Darwin aged about 35)

Darwin worked with many people

‘Imuch regret that want of

space prevents my having the

satisfaction of acknowledging

the generous assistance which

I have received from very

many naturalists, some of

them personally unknown to

me.’ On the Origin of Species,

1859.

(Darwin aged 50)
