      HENRI ROUSSEAU- Two Monkeys in the Jungle

We have inherited an incredibly beautiful and complex garden, but the trouble is that
we have been appallingly bad gardeners.

We have not bothered to acquaint ourselves with the simplest principles of gardening.

By neglecting our garden, we are storing up for ourselves, in the not very distant future,
a world catastrophe as bad as any atomic war, and we are doing it with all the bland
complacency of an idiot child chopping up a Rembrandt with a pair of scissors.
--Gerald Durrell

A squirrel monkey named Banana-Sam, similar to the one seen here, was recently returned to the San Francisco Zoo.
