Week for the Animals

"How it is that animals understand things I do not know, but it is certain that they do understand. Perhaps there is a language which is not made of words and everything in the world understands it. Perhaps there is a soul hidden in everything and it can always speak, 
without even making a sound, to another soul."

~Frances Hodgson Burnett, UK playwright  & novelist
