Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Oh my God ... what an incredible photo!


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) "I suppose if there were a part of the world in which mastodon still lived, somebody would design a new gun, and men, in their eternal impudence, would hunt mastodon as they now hunt elephant. Impudence seems to be the word. At least David and Goliath were of the same species, but, to an elephant, a man can only be a midge with a deathly sting.

"It is absurd for a man to kill an elephant. It is not brutal, it is not heroic, and certainly it is not easy; it is just one of those preposterous things that men do like putting a dam across a great river, one tenth of whose volume could engulf the whole of mankind without disturbing the domestic life of a single catfish.

"Elephant, beyond the fact that their size and conformation are aesthetically more suited to the treading of this earth than our angular informity, have an average intelligence comparable to our own. Of course they are less agile and physically less adaptable than ourselves -- nature having developed their bodies in one direction and their brains in another, while human beings, on the other hand, drew from Mr. Darwin's lottery of evolution both the winning ticket and the stub to match it. This, I suppose, is why we are so wonderful and can make movies and electric razors and wireless sets -- and guns with which to shoot the elephant, the hare, clay pigeons, and each other."

Beryl Markham: West with the Night

Lulu I love elephants! Thanks for this list :) Now I just need to find some more lists about tigers, lions (I already have a few so I think I'm good), and ocean animals...


message 5: by Margaret (new)

Margaret Oatley A really good read is 'Elephantoms' by Lyall Watson. He brings out the wonderful Spirit of Elephant. Lyall inspired me to write 'The Elephant Buttons' which is more about my grandmother than the elephants.
