As I was sitting at a meeting today, I noticed the quote that the planner of the meeting had added to his agenda...
"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."
Anatole France - Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1921 "in recognition of his brilliant literary achievements, characterized as they are by a nobility of style, a profound human sympathy, grace, and a true Gallic temperament."
Of course Tootsie Roll and I agree completely with France's quote...but we might change the wording a bit to say,
"Until one has loved, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."
-Tootsie Roll & Traci
