“If you took the monsters' point of view, everything they did made perfect sense. The trick was learning to think like a monster.”
Sy Montgomery, The Soul of an Octopus: A Surprising Exploration Into the Wonder of Consciousness

“I never met a pig I didn't like. All pigs are intelligent, emotional, and sensitive souls. They all love company. They all crave contact and comfort. Pigs have a delightful sense of mischief; most of them seem to enjoy a good joke and appreciate music. And that is something you would certainly never suspect from your relationship with a pork chop.”
Sy Montgomery, The Good Good Pig: The Extraordinary Life of Christopher Hogwood

“Go out into the world where your heart calls you. The blessings will come, I promise you that. I wish for you the insight to recognize the blessings as such, and sometimes it's hard. But you'll know it's a blessing if you are enriched and transformed by the experience. So be ready. There are great souls and teachers everywhere. It's your job to recognize them.”
Sy Montgomery
