Nature’s answer

The animal that will respond to your voice. Source: Miles to Style

“The loneliness and solitude of man can be dispersed by spiritual intercourse, but man is of the earth, too, and Nature lives in him and holds him fast. She is his mother, and just as in all young things that stray from home there is a yearning after associations which recall the color and the atmosphere of the old home now lost, so does the solitary man seek Nature, a life in Nature; Nature’s answer, the animal that understands his voice and respond to it.”

— F.J.J. Buytendijk, The Mind of the Dog (quoted in The Art of Raising a Puppy, by the Monks of New Skete)
