Complexity: 
Easy

"The activities of the different species of living beings are begun from the very moment of the creation. It is not that all is evolved. The different species of life are created immediately along with the universe."

Today's Smart Quote is from the Bhagavad-gita As It Is, 9.8:

TRANSLATION

The whole cosmic order is under Me. Under My will it is automatically manifested again and again, and under My will it is annihilated at the end.

PURPORT (excerpt):

. . . Now, as far as the living entities are concerned, they are impregnated into this material nature, and as a result of their past deeds they take different positions. Thus the activities of this material world begin. The activities of the different species of living beings are begun from the very moment of the creation. It is not that all is evolved. The different species of life are created immediately along with the universe. Men, animals, beasts, birds -- everything is simultaneously created, because whatever desires the living entities had at the last annihilation are again manifested. . .
