Nicodemus
"One of the nice things about looking at a bear is that you know it spends 100 per cent of every minute of every day being a bear. It doesn't strive to become a better bear. It doesn't go to sleep thinking, 'I wasn't really a very good bear today'. They are just 100 per cent bear, whereas human beings feel we're not 100 per cent human, that we're always letting ourselves down. We're constantly striving towards something, to some fulfilment."

- Stephen Fry

I so cant think of Stephen Fry anymore without thinking of all his quotes coming from "The Hitchhikers Guide Book"

That chimerical nature is part of why I find it an interesting quote.

I was a very good bear today! I ate some fish, I ate some honey, and I only mauled one or two campers!

I go to sleep wondering "What can I do to make myself LESS human?" ;-)
