Geological Literature QotW

I finally have time to post some of the Quotes of the Week that I have been stockpiling. This one seems a rather odd quote in general. But to top it off, it was completely out of nowhere. This has absolutly nothing to do with the material preceding it in the paragraph. The last part of the article that this may have been in reference to was at least 10-11 pages previously. So it was rather out of nowhere, making it even more bizarre.

Again, what?
"A cyclops will always have the nostrils above the single eye."

Alberch, P., 1989, The logic of monsters: Evidence for internal constraint in development and evolution: Geobios, v. 22, p. 21-57.
