A Quote by W. H. Hudson on animals, art, children, darkness, inventions, joy, life, mind, nature, and unhappiness

Bear in mind that the children of life are the children of joy; that the lower animals are only unhappy when made so by man; that man alone of all the creatures, has "found out many inventions", the chief of which appears to be the art of making himself miserable, and of seeing all Nature stained with that dark and hateful colour.

W. H. Hudson (1841 - 1922)
