"A man is an animal. It differs from the usual run of animals in that it has a brain. This is a severe handicap. An ordinary common or garden type of animal -- take a dog -- is born without a brain pitted nose out to utilise it urges and does very well to boot. One type realises that its brain is a handicap and proceeds to bash them out against the walls. But this is contrary to instinct which doesn't hold with wall bashing. Consequently it dies. A man goes on throughout its life continually battling its mind against its impulses. Sometimes its brain is on top and sometimes in its impulses. I hate this up-and-down business; it gets me down. Personally I prefer the instincts, but the more I think of it, my brain tells me not to. It is all very difficult. Wiz" page 5 Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall.
