“We must protect them (animals) and this land. If the animals die, this land dies. If this land dies, we die.”  Diane van der Westhuizen


Monkeys 1

“Man is the Reasoning Animal. Such is the claim. I think it is open to dispute. Indeed, my experiments have proven to me that he is the Unreasoning Animal… In truth, man is incurably foolish. Simple things which other animals easily learn, he is incapable of learning. Among my experiments was this. In an hour I taught a cat and a dog to be friends. I put them in a cage. In another hour I taught them to be friends with a rabbit. In the course of two days I was able to add a fox, a goose, a squirrel and some doves. Finally a monkey. They lived together in peace; even affectionately.” Mark Twain, Letters from the Earth: Uncensored Writings


“I believe though I do not comprehend, and I hold by faith what I cannot grasp with the mind.” St. Bernard



“I think I like wildflowers best,” I explain. “They just grow wherever they want. No one has to plant them. And then their seeds blow in the wind and they find a new place to grow.” Rebecca Donovan, What If



“We live, in fact, in a world starved for solitude, silence, and private: and therefore starved for meditation and true friendship.” C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory


Just Dance

Forget your voice, sing!
Forget your feet, dance!
Forget your life, live!
Forget yourself and be!”
