Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for February 23, 1992
Calvin: You know, Hobbes, it seems the only time most people go outside is to walk to their cars. We have houses, electricity, plumbing, heat...Maybe we're so sheltered and comfortable that we've lost touch with the natural world and forgotten our place in it. Maybe we've lost our awe of nature. That's why I want to ask you, as a tiger, a wild animal close to nature, what you think we're put on earth to do. What's our purpose in life? Why are we here? Hobbes: We're here to devour each other alive. Calvin: turn on the lights! Turn up the heat!
