Quote of the Day
My mother early on taught us to respect all animals, and I mean all animals - not just cats and dogs but rats and snakes and spiders and fish and wildlife, so I really grew up believing they are just like us and just as deserving of consideration.
I don't eat animals. I rescue strays and take injured pigeons to the wildlife rehab. I carry spiders and wasps outside in a cup covered with a 3x5 card. It would only follow that I'd take pause when contemplating the abrupt and apparently brutal ending of a tiny human being's life, or even a potential human being's life.
Organic buildings are the strength and lightness of the spiders' spinning, buildings qualified by light, bred by native character to environment, married to the ground.
Frank Lloyd Wright
I never kill insects. If I see ants or spiders in the room, I pick them up and take them outside. Karma is everything.
Written laws are like spiders' webs, and will, like them, only entangle and hold the poor and weak, while the rich and powerful will easily break through them.
The mind cannot support moral chaos for long. Men are under as strong a compulsion to invent an ethical setting for their behavior as spiders are to weave themselves webs.
John Dos Passos
What I'm attempting to do is to show people that if I can spend some time with very dangerous spiders and snakes and scorpions, then maybe they'll feel different about the spiders and snakes they find around their areas. I don't need people to keep them as pets. I just like them to be respectful and see that everything in nature has its place.
I have lived eighty years of life and know nothing for it, but to be resigned and tell myself that flies are born to be eaten by spiders and man to be devoured by sorrow.
I'm always worried about everything. Like spiders.
The world is well supplied with spiders whose male ancestors died after mating. The world is bereft of spiders whose would-be ancestors never mated in the first place.
I have a terrifying long list of fears. Literally everything - diseases, spiders... and people getting tired of me.
A pretty little collection of weaknesses and a terror of spiders are our indispensable stock-in-trade with the men.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
What I am interested in with birds, just as I am with spiders or monkeys, is what they do and why they do it.
Be able to recognize the dangerous snakes, spiders, insects, and plants that live in your area of the country.
Marilyn vos Savant
It's so bizarre, I'm not scared of snakes or spiders. But I'm scared of butterflies. There is something eerie about them. Something weird!
Not a fan of spiders. I saw the movie 'Arachnophobia,' which was single-handedly rated in the top three worst choices of my life.
Here's an interesting thing about L.A. - it's overrun with black widow spiders. I could find you one on the street in 10 minutes.
Spiders - the way they move freaks me out. It's so malevolent.
I suffer from arachnophobia. I don't mind the tiny spiders so much, it's the ones with their legs covered in thick hair.
I have mentally overcome situations most of you would be terrified to ever attempt: heights, fire, needles, spiders, snakes, angry monkeys, being shot, being hit by a car, going blind - you name it, I have been in a situation where I have had to mentally overcome my inherent fears to do my job.
People think that because of my act that I must have a really busy mind and I must be driven. I really am not. I quite like going outside and looking at spiders on a hedge in my garden and stuff.
I try to bring my mascara everywhere because I'm a blonde and you know blondes have really light eyelashes, you always wanna put more and more on 'til they look like spiders, that's just what I do.
Apparently, as a kid, I used to eat spiders. Maybe there's some Freudian significance behind that.
Children are perfectly happy to sit next to spiders; it is only grown-ups who are frightened away.
I'm not scared of snakes, spiders or heights. I have three children; as a mum, you can't be afraid of things like that.
