“All is an Ocean. All flows and connects so powerfully that if, in this life, you manage to become more gracious by even a drop, it is better for every bird, child and animal your life touches than you will ever know. Start praying to the birds in ecstasy! Cherish this ecstasy, however senseless it may seem to people!” - Doystoyevsky from The Brothers Karamazov
Drawn by me & the writings in my sisters handwriting
This is the final sentence, of the final book in the Harry Potter series, designed using the Deathly Hallows symbol as the A. I tracked down the font used in the first editions and used that. These books meant an awful lot to me growing up, and they still provide a wonderful escape.
I have my dog's paw tattooed on my side and I've been thinking about adding to it. I'd like a quote related to animal liberation/rights/etc. One that's crossed my mind is "Four Legs Good" from Animal Farm. My dilemma is in deciding whether that's appropriate or not considering it's meanings. On one hand there's the obvious propaganda aspect, but I also see it as tied to the arbitrary nature of speciesism. Any thoughts on this?
Hmm, that’s kind of tricky! I personally viewed the “Four Legs Good” as a sort of controlling device for the working animals, so I’m not sure that that’s the kind of quote you would want, however, it’s not my tattoo.
If any of my other followers have an opinion on this, or have any ideas for quotes feel free to toss them my way!
