“It goes without saying that even those of us who are going to hell will get eternal life—if that territory really exists outside religious books and the minds of believers, that is. Having said that, given the choice, instead of being grilled until hell freezes over, the average sane human being would, needless to say, rather spend forever idling in an extremely fertile garden, next to a lamb or a chicken or a parrot, which they do not secretly want to eat, and a lion or a tiger or a crocodile, which does not secretly want to eat them.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana, The Use and Misuse of Children

“Putting on the collar is taking charge of unexpected situations. Keeping humans from taking control from me. To tell hunters that I'm not prey. Not a trophy by wearing the collar. I looked at the circlet again. Looking deeper, I see not subjugation, but a tool of power to control my fate in the world of man that symbolizes my ownership over both my nature spirit and wolf-self.”
Jazz Feylynn, Colorado State of Mind

Kamand Kojouri
“We cannot hunt for love.

and become love’s prey.”
Kamand Kojouri

“The year was 1996, and the date was July 5. It was a Friday night and I had just turned 21 two days prior, which, by the way, was a miracle unto itself. Due to the violent life I was living, this was a milestone and something worth celebrating. But on this beautiful summer evening, I was not in a celebratory mood. Rather, I was in a predatory mood and that was what I was doing: lying and waiting for my prey to arrive.”
Drexel Deal, The Fight of My Life is Wrapped Up in My Father

It is the sound of millions and millions of creatures living and struggling and dying and being born. It commands those who hear it to eat or be eaten..”
Amanda Craig, A Vicious Circle

جلجامش نبيل, Gilgamesh Nabeel, صراع الأقنعة

Victoria Scott
“The wolves watch us watching them and i recall the two wolves chasing the snowshoe hare across the field. How fast they claimed that animal as their prize. I remember wondering how the rabbit's heart must have known without doubt that it would be eaten. I think about this as we turn our backs on the wolves, and head deeper into the woods. I try to bury the worry, because we're not rabbits. We are humans. We are hunters. We are not prey.”
Victoria Scott, Hear the Wolves
