It's such a great gift to be a rock, as opposed to not existing at all.

It's a greater gift to be a flower. It's a greater gift to be a tree. And It's a greater gift to be an eagle.

But what a gift, to be a human being; To be a conscious human being. Created on the doors of eternity...Literally created on the doors of eternity.
