Animals give me more pleasure through the viewfinder of a camera than they ever did in the crosshairs of a gunsight. And after I've finished "shooting," my unharmed victims are still around for others to enjoy. I have developed a deep respect for animals. I consider them fellow living creatures with certain rights that should not be violated any more than those of humans.
~Jimmy Stewart

The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow,
he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing.

"Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."
~Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

He knows when you're comfortable
He knows when you're confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.

People tell me that the countryside must always be stupid and backward, and I get angry,
as if it were said that only townspeople had immortal souls, and that it was only in the city
that the flame of divinity breathed into the first men had an unobscured glow.
~George William Russell
