Words of infinite wisdom ...
"People spend money they don't have
On things they don't need
To impress people they don't like.
... Will Smith

The fruit of silence is prayer
The fruit of prayer is faith
The fruit of faith is love
The fruit of love is service
The fruit of service is peace
       ~ Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Oh, Shame on the Mothers of Mortals
Who do not Stop to Teach
Of the Sorrow that lies in Sweet, Silent Eyes
The Sorrow that has no Speech 
For the same Force formed the Camel
That Fashioned Man and King
And the God of The Whole
Gave a Spark of  Soul
To Each Furred and Feathered Thing
                         Old Arabian poem

"Man did not weave the web of life - he is merely a       strand in it.  Whatever he does to the web, he does         to himself."-- Chief Seattle, 1854


"Other animals, which, on account of their interests having been neglected by the insensibility of the ancient jurists, stand degraded into the class of things. ... The day has been, I grieve it to say in many places it is not yet past, in which the greater part of the species, under the denomination of slaves, have been treated ... upon the same footing as ... animals are still. The day may come, when the rest of the animal creation may acquire those rights which never could have been withholden from them but by the hand of tyranny. The French have already discovered that the blackness of skin is no reason why a human being should be abandoned without redress to the caprice of a tormentor. It may come one day to be recognized, that the number of legs, the villosity of the skin, or the termination of the os sacrum, are reasons equally insufficient for abandoning a sensitive being to the same fate. What else is it that should trace the insuperable line? Is it the faculty of reason, or perhaps, the faculty for discourse?...the question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer? Why should the law refuse its protection to any sensitive being?...           The time will come when humanity will extend its mantle over everything which breathes... "
