quote of the moment

"language had undoubtedly been an essential facotr. but why did apes
talk and not men? scientific opinion differed on this point. there
were some who saw in it a mysterious divine intervention. others
maintained that the ape's mind was primarily the result of the fact that
he had four agile hands."

-- pierre boulle, "planet of the apes"
