I saw a movie years ago that featured this quote. It was about New Zealand being taken over by its sheep population. One of the main characters was a vicar who kept making biblical puns and double entendres. Very strange.

South America. They are also related to the camel. sunny flower

It was not. It was very dark in many respects. Humans who worked in the meat processing industry were rounded up as war criminals and put in camps. The vicar was doing his best not to take sides, to recognize the legitimate complaints of the sheep while advocating mercy to the humans. I do not remember much more, not even the title. As I said, this was many years ago.

PostSubject: Wisdom Quotes   Fri Nov 13, 2009 4:01 pm

"Nowhere can man find a quieter or more untroubled retreat than in his own soul"
Marcus Aurelius (121-180 CE)
Meditations


Men seek seclusion in the wilderness, by the seashore, or in the mountains-a dream
you have cherished only too fondly yourself. Nowhere can a man find a quieter or
more untroubled retreat than in his own soul...Avail yourself often, then, of this
retirement, and so continually renew yourself.'
Meditations
