QUOTES AND SUCH:

     There is no first world and third world. There is only one world, for all of us to live and delight in.

      A house is not a home until it has a dog.

      In conservation, the motto should always be ‘never say die’.

     “The uncivilized behavior of some human beings in a zoo has to be seen to be believed.”

      “In my experience it is always the most innocent-looking creatures that can cause you the worst damage.”
