I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-09-12 (visit:699) - Winston Churchill cats
If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-09-10 (visit:740) - Mark Twain cats
A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings, for one reason or another, may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-09-12 (visit:669) - Ernest Hemingway cats
Man is the Reasoning Animal. Such is the claim. I think it is open to dispute. Indeed, my experiments have proven to me that he is the Unreasoning Animal... In truth, man is incurably foolish. Simple things which other animals easily learn, he is incapable of learning. Among my experiments was this. In an hour I taught a cat and a dog to be friends. I put them in a cage. In another hour I taught them to be friends with a rabbit. In the course of two days I was able to add a fox, a goose, a squirrel and some doves. Finally a monkey. They lived together in peace; even affectionately.
Next, in another cage I confined an Irish Catholic from Tipperary, and as soon as he seemed tame I added a Scotch Presbyterian from Aberdeen. Next a Turk from Constantinople; a Greek Christian from Crete; an Armenian; a Methodist from the wilds of Arkansas; a Buddhist from China; a Brahman from Benares. Finally, a Salvation Army Colonel from Wapping. Then I stayed away for two whole days. When I came back to note results, the cage of Higher Animals was all right, but in the other there was but a chaos of gory odds and ends of turbans and fezzes and plaids and bones and flesh--not a specimen left alive. These Reasoning Animals had disagreed on a theological detail and carried the matter to a Higher Court.Qusmo Qusmo 2012-09-10 (visit:803) - Mark Twain Letters from the Earth: Uncensored Writings cats
