HENRY BESTON QUOTE: WINTER 2018

A Lovely and Favorite Quote of Mine written by Henry Beston in 1928, from “The Outermost House

I particularly like this quote because it is a lovely piece that reminds me of how admirable and awesome all animals are in relation to humans. The fact that he wrote it in 1928 still applies to our present balance in today’s world of animals and humans, and the delicate nature of our relationships.

Beston writes “We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature, and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves.

 

And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.

-- Henry Beston, “The Outermost House”, 1928
