Quote by Michael J. Fox
Zoos are becoming facsimiles - or perhaps caricatures - of how animals once were in their natural habitat. If the right policies toward nature were pursued, we would need no zoos at all.
This quote highlights how zoos, despite their efforts to create environments resembling natural habitats for animals, often fall short of replicating the true essence of their natural habitats. The quote suggests that if society were to adopt appropriate measures and policies in preserving nature, there would be no need for zoos. It implies a desire for a world where animals can thrive in their natural environments without the need for human intervention or captivity.
Laws gain their authority from actual possession and custom: it is perilous to go back to their origins; laws, like our rivers, get greater and nobler as they roll along: follow them back upstream to their sources and all you find is a tiny spring, hardly recognizable; as time goes by it swells with pride and grows in strength.
Mom and Dad were married 64 years. And if you wondered what their secret was, you could have asked the local florist - because every day Dad gave Mom a rose, which he put on her bedside table. That's how she found out what happened on the day my father died - she went looking for him because that morning, there was no rose.
