A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Do not commit the error, common among the young, of assuming that if you cannot save the whole of mankind, you have failed.

Jan de Hartog, playwright and novelist (22 Apr 1914-2002) 

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

In nothing does man, with his grand notions of heaven and charity, show forth his innate, low-bred, wild animalism more clearly than in his treatment of his brother beasts. From the shepherd with his lambs to the red-handed hunter, it is the same; no recognition of rights — only murder in one form or another.

John Muir, naturalist, explorer, and writer (1838-1914)
