Quote Left The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. This myth asserts that people simply either have certain charismatic qualities or not. That's nonsense in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born. Failing organizations are usually over-managed and under-led. Quote Right
Quote Left The cloning of humans is on most of the lists of things to worry about from Science, along with behaviour control, genetic engineering, transplanted heads, computer poetry and the unrestrained growth of plastic flowers. Quote Right
Quote Left I have a genetic abnormality generally considered to be asscociated with high rates of certain socially abhorrent behaviors: I am male. Quote Right
Quote Left It has been conventional practice to test potential carcinogens using highly inbred strains of rodents. The rationale was the supposed superior reproducibility of results compared with those obtained from wild-type animals. However, that assumption can be questioned. At least three examples of genetic drift of inbred strains can be cited... Lifetime expectation [in an inbred strain of mice] of developing one or another form of neoplasm ['spontaneous tumour'] had risen from 10 to 80 percent. Quote Right
Quote Left 'Zoologists and others from the scientific industry, plus so-called 'animal lovers' are trying to breed rare species of animals back from the brink of extinction. This means a lot of genetic and medical manipulation, to say nothing of snatching them from their own families and habitats, and keeping them in captivity for exploitation. Any nearly extinct species which makes a 'comeback' in population, will become accessible and disposable and they will be hunted back into low population again. Spaying or neutering is more sensible than breeding... and this goes for everyone, people too!' Quote Right
Quote Left It's funny, to me, the way people refer to childbirth as a miraculous event. A miracle is something that defies nature. Only, childbirth has got to be the most natural thing in the world. Top three anyway. But, on the other hand, when you think about it, there's really no other word that fits. Sperm. Egg. A coincidental meshing of genetic information that will grow something that could write an opera or cook up some Napalm. It blows my mind. Quote Right
Quote Left ...the genes almost always accurately reproduce. If they don't, you get one of the following results: One, monsters --that is, grossly malformed babies resulting from genetic mistakes. Years ago most monsters died, but now many can be saved. This has made possible the National Football League. Quote Right
Quote Left Does a poet create, originate, initiate the thing called a poem, or is his behavior merely the product of his genetic and environmental histories? Quote Right
Quote Left If we wish to understand human cancer, the [research] effort should be made in humans because the genetic control seems to be different in different species. Quote Right
Quote Left It will be an important step in our understanding of the genetic components of cancer and the genetic susceptibilities of people affected by cancer. Quote Right
Quote Left One might expect that these animals would mimic human symptoms, not just the genetic mutations. In fact, that is usually the exception, not the rule. Quote Right
Quote Left That female looks capable of passing on my genetic material. Quote Right

Quote Left Contradiction is a force of nature's natural selection within yourself based on the past experiences of your forefathers, trying to genetically guide you to make the right decision. Listen to your instinct. Quote Right
