Animals have these advantages over man: they never hear the clock strike, they die without any idea of death, they have no theologians to instruct them, their last moments are not disturbed by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies, their funerals cost them nothing, and no one starts lawsuits over their wills
Voltaire (via paintgod)
"They die without any idea of death" wtf does that mean I’m pretty sure any prey animal knows what death is
they know death certianly, in a sense, but operate without an Idea of Death. and THUS no rituals and etc… I mean, it makes sense, it’s just tough to grab out of context.
That said: Voltaire’s a scrub. :)
