A Dose of Precious
No activism today. I think humans get burned out by being exposed to the injustice in the world. So today I'm just sharing some of my awww … and awe.
I am in awe of Helen Keller. She saw more being blind than most see with their eyes wide open. Here are some of her inspiring words. They strike the sweet part of the bat for me ….
“No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit. Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world. So long as you can sweeten another’s pain, life is not in vain. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold. Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world right in the eye.” Helen Keller

"Ask not what an animal can do for you; ask what you can do for an animal." Jasper
"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men." ~Alice Walker
The source of the quote is Walker's preface to Marjorie Spiegel's 1988 book, "The Dreaded Comparison" . Her next sentence was, "This is the gist of Ms. Spiegel's cogent, humane and astute argument, and it is sound."
"I was so moved by the intelligence, sense of fun and personalities of the animals I worked with on (the movie) Babe that by the
end of the film I
was a vegetarian."
~ James Cromwell
