Here is some knowledge that Minnesota’s lion-killing dentist obviously never learned in dental school…or anywhere else:  ““…a fullness of life follows when one comes on intimate terms with woods and peaks and meadows. Then a person learns that he was born not to destroy the chain of life of which he is part but to nourish it; that he owes respect not only to his elders but to the snow buttercup at his feet and the hoary-mantled marmot, whistling to him from a rockslide.”

Those are words from William O. Douglas in his 196o book, My Wilderness.  Sadly the past five decades still leave his insight far from universal.
