Thomas French Quotes

"All zoos, even the most enlightened, are built upon the idea both beguiling and repellent—the notion that we can seek out the wildness of the world and behold its beauty, but that we must first contain that wildness. Zoos argue that they are fighting for the conservation of the Earth, that they educate the public and provide refuge and support for vanishing species. And they are right. Animal-rights groups argue that zoos traffic in living creatures, exploiting them for financial gain and amusement. And they are right. Caught inside this contradiction are the animals themselves, and the humans charged with their well-being."

Quotes About Best Is Yet To Come

"Within my heart a garden grows,wild with violets and fragrant rose.Bright daffodils line the narrow path,my footsteps silent as I pass.Sweet tulips nod their heads in rest;I kneel in prayer to seek Gods best.For round my garden a fence stands firmto guard my heart so I can learnwho should enter, and who should waiton the other side of my locked gate.I clasp the key around my neckand wonder if the time is yet.If I unlocked the gate today, would you come in? Or run away?" - Author: Robin Jones Gunn

Quotes About Kala

"Saya dalam gelap.Dan salah siapa kalau saya tak nampak?Kenapa orang keliling hanya pandai bising.Tapi tak pandai menghulur tangan?Jangan pernah judge masa lampau orang lain. Mana mungkin kita tahu jika masa lampaunya tu adalah masa depan kita.Jangan pernah merasa kita mulia jika baju kita putih dan tak pernah bercemar noda, kalau tak pernah kita hulur tangan kepada mereka yang bergelumang lumpur dan kotor.Jangan rasa bagus dengan hanya menggeleng kepala dan bising pada yang salah dan pincang, jika tak pernah kita sinsing lengan untuk membetulkan dan membantu.Jangan menyalahkan mereka yang larut hanyut, jika tak pernah nak cuba tarik mereka yang lemas dan tenggelam. Apatah lagi nak mengajarkan mereka berenang atau meminjamkan pelampung.Moga hari ini, esok dan akan datang adalah yang baik-baik je sampai ke penghujung nyawa. Moga walau hari ini adalah hitam, kelabu dan kelam tapi esok masih punya harapan untuk jadi pelangi seribu warna. Minta dengan doa." - Author: Hlovate

Quotes About Country Dirt Roads

"The night was aromatic with the smell of autumn and the steely fragrance of freshly dampened blacktop. How she loved the smell of road: asphalt baking and soft in July, dirt roads with their dust-and-pollen perfume in June, country lanes spicy with the odor of crushed leaves in sober October, the sand-and-salt smell of the highway, so like an estuary, in February." - Author: Joe Hill
