“In all this wide lovely country, in all these diverse climates, birds and animals live and more, find their enemies, love briefly and violently like the deer or long and tenderly like the quail, guard and cherish their young, and finally die, usually horribly, for Nature, lovely though she is, has no love for the awkward, the slow, the old and the weak.”
