LIFE SIMPLY FINDS A WAY

Here's the script.  There are so many great quotes in series here. Had to get the script and share it. From Jurassic Park:

MALCOLM
John, the kind of control you're attempting is not possible.  If there's one thing the history of evolution has taught us, it's that life will not be contained. Life breaks free.  It expands to new territories.  It 
crashes through barriers.  Painfully, maybe even..dangerously, but and...
well, there it is.

WU
You're implying that a group of composed entirely of females will breed?

MALCOLM
I'm simply saying that life - - finds a way.

(Later in the script)

MALCOLM
Don't you see the danger, John, inherent in what you're doing here?  Genetic power is the most awesome force ever seen on this planet.  But you 
wield it like a kid who's found his dad's gun.
-I'll tell you.

MALCOLM (cont'd)
The problem with scientific power you've used is it didn't require any 
discipline to attain it.  You read what others had done and you took the next step.  You didn't earn the knowledge yourselves, so you don't take 
the responsibility for it.  You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to 
accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you knew what you 
had, you patented it, packages it, slapped in on a plastic lunch box, and now you want to sell it.
HAMMOND
You don't give us our due credit. Our scientists have done things no one
could ever do before. 

MALCOLM 
Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that 
they didn't stop to think if they should.

No way around statistics in that biology does what it does so well. It simply finds a way.
