Love all of God’s creation, the whole of it and every grain of sand.
Love every leaf, every ray of God’s light! Love the animals.
Love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will
soon perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it,
you will begin to comprehend it better every day.
And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all
Love the animals. God has given them the rudiments of thought and joy
Do not trouble their joy, do not harass them, do not deprive them
of their happiness do not work against God’s intent.
Man, do not pride yourself on superiority to animals; they are without sin,
and you, with your greatness, defile the earth by your appearance on it,
and leave the traces of your foulness after you ??
alas, it is true of almost everyone of us!
