“…finding the oldest member of the Hominidae—the family of Man—is like winning gold at the Olympics.”
“The discoverers of skulls are consequently greatly attached to, and jealous of the reputation of, their charges. It is not only that it makes the owner a top dog in the discipline of palaeoanthropology, and an avoider of the fate of perishing through not publishing; finding the oldest member of the Hominidae—the family of Man—is like winning gold at the Olympics. You can go on lecture tours, appear on television and attract corporate dollars.”
“Having your remains pushed on to a simian side-branch is like being a gold medallist found harbouring anabolic steroids.”
Arthur Woods, The Weekend Australian, 14–15 January 1989.
