Thoughts and a Prayer for the Animals

The Animals' Prayer

"Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life."
   - Elizabeth Goudge,
author of "The Joy of the Snow"

"Living with animals can be a wonderful experience, especially if we choose to learn the valuable lessons animals teach through their natural enthusiasm, grace, resourcefulness, affection and forgiveness."
   - Richard H. Pitcairn,
American Veterinarian and Author

"If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience."
   - Woodrow Wilson

"I hold that the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man."
   - Mahatma Gandhi
