Geometric Variational Problems


There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers,
 having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one;
and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according
to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning
endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful
have been, and are being, evolved.
