Elizabeth Janeway Quote: power is not a thing to be owned. But if you believe that it is such a thing, losing it becomes a possibility to fear.

Elizabeth Janeway Sayings: The surprise of animals... in and out, cats and dogs and a milk goat and chickens and guinea hens, all taken for granted, as if man was intended to live on terms of friendly intercourse with the rest of creation instead of huddling in isolation on the fourteenth floor of an apartment house in a city where animals occurred behind bars in the zoo.
