Lindsay Wagner
Acting on stage is a living organism you can never pin down, and I believe the audience feeds off that, too.
Hattie Morahan

As in all of biology, comparative studies showing differences among species are often helpful for a better understanding of the basic mechanisms; with all its advantages, there is a danger of clinging exclusively to one model organism.
John Tyler Bonner
The computer model will be replaced by an organic model, in which the brain-mind is embodied – part of a whole, dynamic, living organism: one driven by emotional forces, not only cognitive ones.
Siri Hustvedt
One of the biggest mistakes people make is to think that what you need to write a novel is imagination, creativity and a facility with words. Yes, you need all those things, but a novel is a highly complex organism that needs to be dealt with in quite a logical manner.
Kate Forsyth

Ellen Key
It’s like the human body. What a tremendous organism. It actually craves contact. It likes contact. It craves it, as opposed to a car.

Jim Harbaugh
An organization’s reason for being, like that of any organism, is to help the parts that are in relationship to each other, to be able to deal with change in the environment.
Kevin Kelly
The individual organs follow the same pattern as the whole organism, i.e. they have their period of growth, of stationary, maximum activity and then of aging decline.
Wilhelm Ostwald
Humankind’s craving to control nature and exploit all its resources for profit can be wiped out in a stroke by an organism we cannot even see with the naked eye.
