Netted Together

'If we chose to let conjecture run wild, then animals, our fellow brethren in pain, diseases, death, suffering, and famine - our slaves in the most laborious works, our companions in our amusements - they may partake (of) our origins in one common ancestor - that we may be all netted together.'

Charles Darwin
from 'The Bedside Book of Beasts - A Wildlife Miscellany'
by Graeme Gibson
