All creatures are one with nature from the largest to the smallest. There is no life within that is marked as insignificant or meaningless. All these things have something to teach us if we are a good student. Their lessons can prove quite valuable. We can learn love, patience, power, self-control, grace, forgiveness. Man sees himself as being above all others but this is mere fallacy. Man is the only creature that frets over the idea of death and this often corrupts his life. We have much we can learn, much we can apply from the creatures around us.
