The human spirit is not dead...

It is convinced that compassion, in which all ethics must take root, can only attain its full breadth and depth if it embraces all living creatures and does not limit itself to mankind.

~ Albert Schweitzer.  Nobel Peace Prize address, 1954, "The Problem of Peace," translated from French.



"Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not, himself, find peace."

~ Albert Schweitzer

The value of compassion cannot be over emphasized.

Anyone can criticize.

It takes a true believer to be compassionate.

No greater burden can be borne by an individual than to understand no one cares or understands.

C'est un nouvel instrument qui sert à piquer la viande pour la porter à sa bouche, comme ça on ne se salit pas les doigts. - - Oui, mais on salit la fourchette. - - La fourchette, ça se lave. - - Oui mais les doigts aussi, je ne vois pas l'interêt. .

A Prayer For Animals

Hear our humble prayer, O God, for our friends the animals,
especially for animals who are suffering;
for animals that are overworked, underfed and cruelly treated;
for all wistful creatures in captivity that beat their wings against bars;
for any that are hunted or lost or deserted or frightened or hungry;
for all that must be put death.

We entreat for them all Thy mercy and pity,
and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compassion
and gentle hands and kindly words.
Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to animals,
and so to share the blessings of the merciful.

Albert Schweitzer

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. 

Charles Dickens


Today was a Dickens of a day [:P]

The first day of spring was once the time for taking the young virgins into the fields, there in dalliance to set an example in fertility for nature to follow. 

Now we just set the clocks an hour ahead and change the oil in the crankcase.

"The majority is never right. Never, I tell you! That's one of these lies in society that no free and intelligent man can help rebelling against. Who are the people that make up the biggest proportion of the population -- the intelligent ones or the fools? I think we can agree it's the fools, no matter where you go in this world, it's the fools that form the overwhelming majority."[:-))]

War may be a necessary evil.

But no matter how necessary, it is always evil, never a good.

We will not learn how to live together in peace

by killing each other's children.
