Vegetarian Ideal


Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth
as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
- Albert Einstein

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. - Howard Zinn

COMPASSION

Affirmation of life is the spiritual act by which man ceases to live thoughtlessly and begins to devote himself to his life
with reverence in order to give it true value.
— Albert Schweitzer

Painting hidden in gilt edges Cornell University Library of rare book


 










This video, created by University Archivist Evan Earle, shows a 1925 copy of Rudyard Kipling's "Kim" from Cornell University Library's Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections, with a hidden painting on its edges -- a technique known as fore-edge painting. The book is one of a series by an artist known as Miss C.B. Currie, and the book -- one of several with fore-edge painting in Cornell's collections -- is unique in that it includes a laid-in photo of the scene depicted.
