"We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of
animals...In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished
and complete, gifted with extensions of the sense 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 splendour and travail of
the Earth."
