|THE BIG CATS
|Everything has its beauty, but not everyone sees it.
We do not see nature with our eyes, but with our
understandings and our hearts. -- William Hazlitt
Those who find beauty in all of nature will find themselves
at one with the secrets of life itself. -- L. W. Gilbert
|Animals give me more pleasure through the viewfinder of a
camera than they ever did in the crosshairs of a gun sight. And
after I've finished "shooting," my unharmed victims are still around
for others to enjoy. I have developed a deep respect for animals.
I consider them fellow living creatures with certain rights that
should not be violated any more than those of humans. -- Jimmy
|There is a beauty, a synergy, an interconnectedness, an
absolute overpowering aspect to the natural world, which
I think leads you to the divine. -- Peter Garrett
|An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language.
All animals, except man, know that the ultimate of life is to enjoy it.
-- (both) Martin Buber
|Except for children, few of us spend time wondering
why nature is the way it is. -- Carl Sagan
|Nature always wears the colors of the spirit.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson
|When a man wants to murder a tiger, it's called sport;
when the tiger wants to murder him, it's called ferocity.
-- George Bernard Shaw
|Beauty, in its supreme development, invariably moves the sensitive soul to tears. -- Edgar Allan Poe
