„Nothing looks funnier than an otter having a good time, unless it’s a sea otter, which looks even more cherubic.“

—  Kenneth Rexroth, Context: I remember the first time I ever saw otter play and slide down a slippery bank into the water. Old Billy knew where they were and took me to them. We sat down silently behind some bushes on the bank of an Indiana stream and pretty soon out came a family of otter and climbed up on the bank and slid down the mud slide over and over again like little children. Nothing looks funnier than an otter having a good time, unless it’s a sea otter, which looks even more cherubic. "Home Schooling and Indian Lore"
Kenneth Rexroth
1905 - 1982

Context: That whole thing has been overstated by environmentalists. First of all, what is it, rocks and snow? C'mon, what is that, you want that? Go to Canada my friend. Believe me, rocks and snow are overrated. I've seen otters—they look better covered in oil. Nightline, 2001. On governments plans to drill in Alaska.

„We are endowed with genes which code out our reaction to beavers and otters, maybe our reaction to each other as well.“

—  Lewis Thomas American physician, poet and educator 1913 - 1993
Context: We are endowed with genes which code out our reaction to beavers and otters, maybe our reaction to each other as well. We are stamped with stereotyped, unalterable patterns of response, ready to be released. And the behavior released in us, by such confrontations, is, essentially, a surprised affection. It is compulsory behavior and we can avoid it only by straining with the full power of our conscious minds, making up conscious excuses all the way. Left to ourselves, mechanistic and autonomic, we hanker for friends. "The Tucson Zoo", p. 9
