“Where men are forbidden to honour a king they honour millionaires, athletes or film-stars instead.” —C.S. Lewis
“We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. […] We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.” —Henry Beston (1888 – 1968).
