The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from The Jungle Tales of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs:|
Tarzan stretched back luxuriously, lying supine at full
length along the rough hide. Flies swarmed about his face;
but with a leafy branch torn from a tree he lazily brushed
"Tantor," he said, "it is good to be alive. It is good
to lie in the cool shadows. It is good to look upon
the green trees and the bright colors of the flowers--upon
everything which Bulamutumumo has put here for us.
He is very good to us, Tantor; He has given you tender leaves
and bark, and rich grasses to eat; to me He has given Bara
and Horta and Pisah, the fruits and the nuts and the roots.
