"Consider the fact that for 3.8 billion years, a period of time older
than the Earth's mountains and rivers and oceans, every one of your
forebears on both sides has been attractive enough to find a mate,
healthy enough to reproduce, and sufficiently blessed by fate and
circumstances to live long enough to do so. Not one of your pertinent
ancestors was squashed, devoured, drowned, starved, stuck fast, untimely
wounded or otherwise deflected from its life's quest of delivering a
tiny charge of genetic material to the right partner at the right moment
to perpetuate the only possible sequence of hereditary combinations that
could result - eventually, astoundingly, and all too briefly - in you."
- Bill Bryson, "A Short History of Nearly Everything" (DoubleDay, 2003)
