#Quote
1You cannot tell a wild animal that he has to learn a trick today. You have to believe that he'll do it tomorrow if you spend enough time with him.
2It's not important what you say to them. It's the tone and the way it's said. I call them by name, speak in a certain voice, and they know what I mean. They each have a different personality. [on training animals with food and voice rather than whip and chair]
3You must become a tiger to be able to train tigers.
4Working closely with animals - training them, understanding them, and getting across their beauty and intellegence to the people - for me, that's the best life I can have.
