“Seek the good in all things, harm no others, take responsibility, respect nature, do your utmost, be informed, be kind, be courageous: at least sincerely try.” (Philosopher and humanist A C Grayling in The Good Book, 2011)
A Memorial to my beloved and beautiful cat. We miss you Purdy.
"For the fate of the sons of men and the fate of the beasts is the same; as one dies, so dies the other; they all have the same breath, and man has no advantage over the beasts; for all is vanity. All go to one place; all are from dust, and all turn to dust again."
- Ecclesiastes, 3:19-20
This little cat moved into our garden about a week after we lost Purdy. She is now living in the house and is called Misty.
These two brothers were born feral but have joined our family and are now quite tame. They are called Jarvis and Dandelion.
'‘Humanism is about the value of things human. Its desire to learn from the past, its exhortation to courage in the present, and its espousal of hope for the future, are about real things, real people, real human need and possibility, and the fate of the fragile world we share. It is about human life; it requires no belief in an after life. It is about this world; it requires no belief in another world. It requires no commands from divinities, no promises of reward or threats of punishment, no myths and rituals, either to make sense of things or to serve as a prompt to the ethical life. It requires only open eyes, sympathy, and reason.’ A.C. Grayling
