When we hate our enemies, we aregiving them power over us:power over our sleep, our appetites,our blood pressure, our health, and our happiness.Our enemies would dance with joy if onlythey knew how they were worrying us,lacerating us, and getting even with us!Our hate is not hurting them at all,but our hate is turning our own daysand nights into a hellish turmoil.- Dale Carnegie

When we hate our enemies, we are
giving them power over us:
power over our sleep, our appetites,
our blood pressure, our health, and our happiness.
Our enemies would dance with joy if only
they knew how they were worrying us,
lacerating us, and getting even with us!
Our hate is not hurting them at all,
but our hate is turning our own days
and nights into a hellish turmoil.

The kakapo is one of the rarest parrots in the world:

It’s flightless
It’s the world’s heaviest parrot
It’s possibly the oldest living bird and
It has a subsonic mating boom that can travel several kilometres

it doesn’t even walk

it GALUMPHS

there is literally no other word for what this precious moss potato is doing

precious moss potato

Whenever I learn of some new amazing creature I ask myself whether they’re facing human-caused destruction or whether we’re leaving them the hell alone.

Illustrations by Fortuné Méaulle for Alphabet des Insectes by Leon Becker 
(France, 1883)

The scans come from the Bibliothèque nationale de France.

A previously-covered Cotsen exhibit says about the book:

Insects stand in for people in this highly fanciful French alphabet. In addition to weight-lifting or parading down the boulevard, they file into church, ice skate, duel, dance, sail, paint, serenade a lover or invite her to dance, and, of course, improve their minds reading.

Hetzel was one of the most important publishers of children’s books in late nineteenth-century France, whose publications were distinguished by their handsome gold-stamped cloth bindings and excellent illustrations.

You can see covers Meaulle (fr.wiki) did for Le Petit Journal here.

Love it!
