„“I have done research on it,” Aïda said. “Some say that bipolarity is a useful adaptation. When things are bad, you become depressed, retreat, conserve energy. When things are good, you spring into action with great energy.”
“And your point is...”
“Will you treat this condition in my offspring against my will? What if I want to have a lot of little bipolar kids?”“

„Clearly, we have both of these sides in us, and that's why I sometimes call us "the bipolar apes."“

—  Frans de Waal Dutch primatologist and ethologist 1948
Context: It is true that the chimpanzee is dominance-oriented, violent, territorial. But it's also cooperative in many ways, and so that side is sometimes forgotten. The bonobo is sensual, sensitive, sexual, a peacemaker, but also can have a nasty side, and that's sometimes forgotten. So both species are sort of the ends of the spectrum, and we fall somewhere in between. Clearly, we have both of these sides in us, and that's why I sometimes call us "the bipolar apes."
