In all religions or at least that studied well Jewdiasm Chritianity and Islam .There is a rule that if you want be a good one you have to love all thing created .one of the stories of Slomon army and the ants . In Christianity Jesus was good to everybody and everything . In Islam Mohammed used to watch his steps fearing that he steps on a creature .

1 Corinthians 13

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.


"Now" is the eternal present.

Great books and TV series about a vet who really did love all creatures great and small.

A great man loves the small creatures as well as the grand; a small man can love only the grand.

Prostitutes love all men!!!! Disgusting, dirty....
Gigolos love all women!!!! Disgusting, dirty....


Money loving is the perversion and the lowest and basest of the humanity.

From Coleridge's Poem : The Rime of the Ancient Mariner - Part VII

Comment: ( is a moral narrative poem that sends the readers complex messages, and this complexity mainly arises due to the rich symbolism. In the poem, we see that a mariner stops a wedding guest and forces him to listen to a story in which he kills an albatross during a journey he makes with other sailors in the sea. We come to know that the mariner feels he is cursed because of this. He is disturbed and harbors remorse for the wrong he did by killing the innocent creature in “blind faith” or superstition. by Payal Khullar) - http://www.enotes.com/homework-help/what-message-rime-ancient-mariner-437114

Farewell, farewell! but this I tell
To thee, thou Wedding-Guest!
He prayeth well, who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast.

He prayeth best, who loveth best
All things both great and small;

For the dear God who loveth us
He made and loveth all.

The Mariner, whose eye is bright,
Whose beard with age is hoar,
Is gone: and now the Wedding-Guest
Turned from the bridegroom's door.

He went like one that hath been stunned,
And is of sense forlorn:
A sadder and a wiser man,
He rose the morrow morn.

Quoting Miriam - A great man loves the small creatures as well as the grand; a small man can love only the grand.


Well said, Miriam. May I use this quote in the future?
