Those seeking inspiration or guidance often look to respected authors, philosophers, inventors, world leaders, and other famous people.
But few, if any, look to a pig.
The swine race, however, should not be so easily discarded. A look back into the history of the species reminds us of its shining star, Toby, the Sapient Pig.
Toby was a learned pig who achieved great fame in England in the early 1800s. Billed as “The only scholar of his race in the world,” Toby could spell, read, play cards, tell time and guess people’s ages.
Fortunately for us, he could also write. And with that glorious talent, he wrote his autobiography, The Life and Adventures of Toby, the Sapient Pig; With His Opinions on Men and Manners. Thus, his tale has been preserved through the centuries, allowing us all to marvel at his genius.
