“Don't ever give up.
Don't ever give in.
Don't ever stop trying.
Don't ever sell out.
And if you find yourself succumbing to one of the above for a brief moment,
pick yourself up, brush yourself off, whisper a prayer, and start where you left off.
But never, ever, ever give up.”
― Richelle E. Goodrich

An extract from "Life Stories" by David Attenborough
What would you like to be, people sometimes ask, if you came back to earth as an animal?
The answer I give depends, i suppose, on the company. If it is a bit racy, I dare say my mind would range over a number of mammals remarkable for the extravagance of their reproductive techniques.
In a more sober company, I usually find a safer answer. 'A sloth', I say. And why? 'because it spends most of its time hanging upside down from a branch - dozing.'
The sloth is not only one of the laziest but one of the strangest of animals. It spends most of its life asleep, but even when it is awake it only moves very slowly. No matter what the danger or emergency, it is incapable of speed. There are two main kinds, defined by the number of toes they have on their front legs. The two-toed sloth is relatively lively. It is also rather ferocious and will slash at you with its formidable curved claws. It is the three-toed which has really slothful habits and the one that interests me the most.
You are not likely to have seen it in zoos, for, unlike the two-toed which will eat all kinds of vegetables, the three-toed is really picky and will only accept leaves and fruits of a few particular kinds - which few zoos can supply. And in any case, it doesn't make an exactly dazzling exhibit since it spends most of its time in slumber.
It is about the size of a small, slim upside down goatm, if you can imagine such a thing. Its feet don't have soles but end in curved hooks - claws - from which it can hang without any muscular effort whatever. It is covered in a shaggy coat of coarse untidy hair, blotched in grey cream and brown. The hair on its head is combed forward into a fringe.That on its body is parted down the middle of its belly with the hair running down its flanks towards its spine so that as it hangs upside down, the tropical rain, which it has to endure for several hours a day, does much the same.
