We have the power to be higher than angels or lower than animals

Because there are things we feel but cannot express them, and because there are people we love but cannot let them know, and because sometimes we accept what we have rather than go for what we truly deserve; only human beings of all animals have learned to cry.
Because we have places to go, and because we want to get there fast, and because we elect the path of less resistance, we have such moral bends and twists and corners; for it is the path of less resistance that is responsible for twisted rivers.
Because we want the best for ourselves, and consolidate more than what we truly need for our need, only human beings suffer obesity. In nature, animals eat just what is enough. I have never seen a wild thing suffer from obesity.
A fly goes about its life, unaware of the power of insecticide. A mosquito sings even as it comes to boldly siphon our blood, completely unaware that it could be swatted off in an instant.
No, nature has no self-pity or esteem or ego issues. Only human beings suffer such abominations. And perhaps that is why it has been said that human beings have the power to be higher than angels or lower than animals. So where are we?
Higher than angels or lower than animals? You choose.
