Trump: Immigration — Rantings From a Virtual Soapbox

“Why should we tolerate a diet of weak poisons, a home in insipid surroundings, a circle of acquaintances who are not quite our enemies, the noise of motors with just enough relief to prevent insanity? Who would want to live in a world which is just not quite fatal?”

~ Rachel Carson

Far too true for comfort. 😦

~ Traditional proverb

from The Speed of Darkness, by Catherine Fisher

“Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.”

~Rachel Carson

~Leo Tolstoy

“It is more important to prevent animal suffering, rather than sit to contemplate the evils of the universe praying in the company of priests.”

~ Buddha
