However, the presence of this mammifer preoccupied the colonists. ❋ Unknown (2005)

If one species only of the whole animal kingdom died out in forty years, no more than one mammifer might disappear in forty thousand years, in a region of the dimensions of Europe. ❋ Unknown (1904)

I am not here to tell you falsehoods of the great difficulties that I have overcome in understanding and subjugating this mammifer, whilst he was grazing at liberty amongst the mountains in the plains of the torrid zone. ❋ Carlo Collodi (1858)

Thus, the first reptile was born from a fish, the first bird was generated by a reptile, and the first mammifer had birds for its parents. ❋ Francis Bowen (1850)

The mammifer only passes through still more stages, according to its higher place in the scale. ❋ Francis Bowen (1850)

It breaks through all principles of classification to take one mammifer as an epoch. ❋ Charles Darwin (1845)

There is no case of the same mammifer being found on an island far from the coast, and on the mainland, as happens with plants {382}. ❋ Charles Darwin (1845)

On the idea of double creations it would be strange if the same species of several plants should have been created in Australia and Europe; and no one instance of the same species of mammifer having been created, or aboriginally existing, in two as nearly remote and equally isolated points. ❋ Charles Darwin (1845)

The Galapagos Archipelago {355} is a remarkable instance of this latter fact; here almost every bird, its one mammifer, its reptiles, land and sea shells, and even fish, are almost all peculiar and distinct species, not found in any other quarter of the world: so are the majority of its plants. ❋ Charles Darwin (1845)

These facts clearly shew how all the various organic forms of our world are bound up in one -- how a fundamental unity pervades and embraces them all, collecting them, from the humblest lichen up to the highest mammifer, in one system, the whole creation of which must have depended upon one law or decree of the Almighty, though it did not all come forth at one time. ❋ Robert Chambers (1836)

If then there had been a system of progressive development, the successive changes through which the embryo of a species of a high class, a mammifer for example, now passes, may be expected to present us with a picture of the stages through which, in the course of ages, that class of animals has successively passed in advancing from a lower to a higher grade. ❋ Charles Lyell (1836)

In the course of its evolution, the germ of an animal passes through the mineral and vegetable forms; if the animal is a bird, its final embryological form will be preceded by the animal forms, which, in the evolutionary series, make their appearance before the avian type; if we are dealing with a mammifer, the animal will be the summit of all the lower types; when it is the human germ that we are following in its development, we see that it also has contained within itself and is successively reproducing the potentialities of the whole preceding series. ❋ Th. Pascal (N/A)

I have expressed myself very ill, and I am not very sure that my notions are very clear on this subject, except that I know that I have often been made wroth (even by Lyell) at the confidence with which people speak of the introduction of man, as if they had seen him walk on the stage, and as if, in a geological chronological sense, it was more important than the entry of any other mammifer. ❋ Charles Darwin (1845)
