I think I could turn and live with the animals. They are so placid and self-contained;
I stand and look at them long and long and they do not whine about their condition;
they do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins; not one is dissatisfied;
not one is demented with the mania of owning things.

- Walt Whitman

("Possum and Fig Newton" by Alex Schaefer)
