Whales and redwoods both make us feel small and I think that's an important experience for humans to have at the hands of nature. We need to recognize that we are not the stars of the show. We're just another pretty face, just one species among millions more.

Roger Payne in Talking on the Water by Roger Payne


To Practice This Thought:
Visit the woods or the zoo. Admire all the pretty faces there.
