Lileks, on dogs
In my more muddle-headed mystical moods I believe dogs were put here as the perfect lesson in the relationship between humans and the infinite divine; we see what it is like to live as though we understand everything, when there’s simply no means by which a dog can fathom what we know. But they know enough, don’t they? And they know more. I may pity him for not having fingers; if he could, he’d pity me for not having a nose.
