Artist's Description

The rhinoceros went on, “I was very interested in the comparison you drew between Spinoza and Thomas Hobbes. I would enjoy continuing our discussion.”

“I do not think I can,” the Professor said at last. “I do not want to talk anymore.”

“In that case, perhaps we should be on our way,” the rhinoceros said. “I have lived in your house for a long time. We have talked together, days and nights on end, about ways of being in the world, ways of considering it, ways of imagining it as a part of some greater imagining. Now has come the time for silence. Now I think you should come and live with me.”

- excerpt from Professor Gottesman And The Indian Rhinoceros, by Peter S. Beagle

Peter S. Beagle provides me so incredibly much inspiration. This short story, found in his collection The Rhinoceros Who Quoted Nietzsche, became an instant favorite of mine when I first came across it not that long ago. I have reread the beautiful, perfect little story many times since then, and it never fails to bring lovely tears to my eyes.
