Caught in the Net of Life and Time

quotation marks

Here’s another in a series of thought-provoking quotes, plus my two cents.

For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the Earth.
Henry Beston, Naturalist

This quote was sent to me by Ceciley Bachnik Lowe, a woman I interviewed for a recent Best Friends Animal Society article. She’s an advocate for the hundred feral cats in her community, specifically for the “trap, neuter, release” policy, which is the only effective way to control the population.
