    Incredible! Thanks, Hannah and Julie.

    "Love the animals: God has given them the rudiments of thought and joy untroubled. Do not trouble it, don’t harass them, don’t deprive them of their happiness, don’t work against God’s intent. Man, do not pride yourself on superiority to the animals; they are without sin, and you, with your greatness, defile the earth by your appearance on it, and leave traces of your foulness after you."

    --- Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

  2. What a wonderful quote. I have that audiobook and am going to move it up in the queue.

    The complete awesomeness and profundity of The Brothers K. cannot be overstated!

    When you have some time, do yourself a favor and read it. There are many places in the book where I've just had to close it and think (and sometimes weep) before going on.
