Do you think bears think of quitting? Or, considering their chances and thinking of folding up? Checking out? Because it's just too much? Or pelicans? Chipmunks? Things aren't going their way? Do you think they ever think about things not going their way? I think they just wake up and go meet the day, every day, for no reason, without ever thinking about reasons for what they do. They just do what needs to be done. Every day. Do you think it is harder to be us than it is to be an elephant? Do walruses ever cheer themselves up by saying, "At least I'm not a human being!"?
