Adapt or Perish: H. G. Wells

” Adapt or perish, that is and always has been the implacable law of life for mankind. Either the human imagination and the will to live rises to the plain necessity of our case, and a renascent Homo sapiens struggles on to a new, a harder and happier world dominion, or he blunders down the slopes of failure through a series of unhappy phases, in the wake of all the monster reptiles and beasts that have flourished and lorded it on the earth before him, to his ultimate extinction”

The Fate of Homo Sapiens [1939]
