"Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to a man. Even the lowliest
insect strives for protection against dangers that threaten its life.
Just as each one of us wants happiness and fears pain, just as each one
of us wants to live and not die, so do all other creatures."

                                      ~His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
