Physics was the first of the natural sciences to become fully modern and highly mathematical. Chemistry followed in the wake of physics, but biology, the retarded child, lagged far behind. Even in the time of Newton and Galileo, men knew more about the moon and other heavenly bodies than they did about their own.

I like that statement about biology being the retarded child and the irony of the last sentence HEE.
I just realized what a geek i am 8D
