They are stupid, they are beasts, they are meat, they are death. I am talking simply but without any affectation.
The night belongs to beasts of prey, and always has. It's easy to forget that when you're indoors, protected by light and solid walls.
.. If you fall into a lion's pit, the reason the lion will tear you to pieces is not because it's hungry-be assured, zoo animals are amply fed-or because it's bloodthirsty, but because you've invaded it's territory.
Nobody's perfect. We're all just one step up from the beasts and one step down from the angels.
If all the beasts were gone, men would diefrom a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beastsalso happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earthbefalls the sons of the Earth.
