All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.
~ Cecil Frances Alexander 1818-1895
And ALL are most dear to my heart, where many battle daily for supremacy
over all the beauteous things that make my life worthwhile.
Here you will find memes about some special animals – from kangaroos to kelpies, and birds – from galahs to peacocks. They’ll make you laugh, they’ll make you cry – and the memes and small stories are here on Wattpad to enjoy for free –
Did I hear someone ask for a sample meme? OK, here’s just one of them, the first, actually. It’s simply called
The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas
can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.
– Kent M. Keith, The Silent Revolution
‘Don’t bend; don’t water it down;
don’t try to make it logical;
don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion.
Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.
– Frank Kafka
Words to inspire… and they certainly did.
Is it as curious and bizarre to you, as it is to me, that so many males of the bird world (and many of the animal world, also) are glorious creatures, like the peacock – full of splendour and pomp and glory, while the poor little female is so often smaller, clumsier, totally drab and colourless. She is designed to be a mother, raise the kids and basically take a back seat to all of life’s happenings.
And yet in homo sapiens, it’s the female who spends inordinate amounts of time and money on her beautification… and keeping herself that way! And the male has mostly been dressed in the more sober and sensible wardrobe.
Of course, there are exceptions to both these rules… and many of them. Still interesting, if you ask me.
