"All the creatures - not the higher creatures alone, but also the lower, according to that which each of them has received in itself from God - each one raises its voice in testimony to that which God is...each one after its manner exalts God, since it has God in itself."
~ God's Covenant with Animals, Lantern Books, 2000
