Last line in 'Origin of Species'

"There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved"

It was a display at the Chicago Field Museum in Darwin's life & I saw it in 2007.

That's a quotation that deserves wider circulation. Where is that display?
