"We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion.
"We patronize the animals for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. 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 the extension 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 splendour and travail of the earth." (The Outermost House)

My oldest has Asperger's, including obsessive-compulsive elements -- and one of her obsessions is LIONS. She draws lions, wolves, deer, cats ... endlessly. And has played our Lion King CD until I swear it is lacy with holes!
But ... with Helen Mirren -- it can't be ALL bad!
