John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:6684
AUTHOR:Charles Robert Darwin (1809–1882)
QUOTATION:  The expression often used by Mr. Herbert Spencer of the Survival of the Fittest is more accurate, and is sometimes equally convenient. 1 
ATTRIBUTION:The Origin of Species. Chap. iii.
 
Note 1.
This survival of the fittest which I have here sought to express in mechanical terms, is that which Mr. Darwin has called “natural selection, or the preservation of favoured races in the struggle for life.”—Herbert Spencer: Principles of Biology. Indirect Equilibration. [back]
