That is a very profound statement, God.

Is there some subtle kind of meaning that you wish us lowly ones to grasp here?
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

Insects are animals as well so we can simplify it to animals are alive

I think that this is actually the first time I have disagreed with you on something.
I can be quite ignorant when it comes to well most things so I had to google it.
You are correct. .. not that I had to tell you that. But I needed to confirm it.
By the way, humans are animals too but then we know this, don't we?
We affirm it often.

I wouldn't have thought of insects as being in the same classification as animals though.

'Animal' comes from 'anime'--that which moves.

Maybe because of how small they are but the insect population comprises 98 per cent of the
entire animal kingdom and so what they lack in size they more than make up for in numbers
