High recognitions . . . An animal does not know hostility


“An animal does not know hostility, not even today,
because it is not natural to the species. But it knows fear.
It has got to know it through pain, fear of incomprehensible human creatures,
of their cruelty and of their terrible weapons.”

– Roselis von Sass (The Birth of Mankind)

The joy of life comes from our encounters


“The joy of life comes from our encounters
with new experiences and hence there is no greater joy
than to have an endlessly changing horizon
for each day to have a new and different sun.”

– Jon Krakauer

. . . and you will know, too,


“A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction
and at such a speed… It feels an impulsion… this is the place to go now.
But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind all clouds,
and you will know, too,
when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.”

~ Richard Bach

Happy Earth Day!


“On Earth Day, we celebrate all the gifts
the world and nature make available to us.
We recognize our complete dependence on its bounty.
And we acknowledge the need for good stewardship
to preserve its fruits for future generations.”

~ John Hoeven


“The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.”
