"It is not ... survives ... more adaptable to change."

Apparently Darwin never said that.

A professor and scholar later paraphrased and extrapolated from his work with the statement: "According to Darwin’s Origin of Species, it is not the most intellectual of the species that survives; it is not the strongest that survives; but the species that survives is the one that is able best to adapt and adjust to the changing environment in which it finds itself." --Megginson, ‘Lessons from Europe for American Business’, Southwestern Social Science Quarterly (1963)

so... yeah. Good words, though. Improvise, adapt and overcome.
