Dogs

I’ve started gathering a few quotes that I like about dogs and cats and their owners. I especially like this one by Mahatma Gandhi:
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
Enjoy!

 

Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.

Roger Caras

 

I have felt cats rubbing their faces against mine and touching my cheek with claws carefully sheathed. These things, to me, are expressions of love.

James Herriot

 

He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.

Immanuel Kant

 

Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent.

Milan Kundera

 

Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That’s the problem.

A.A. Milne (Winnie-the-Pooh)

 

I care not much for a man’s religion whose dog and cat are not the better for it.

Abraham Lincoln

 

Whoever said you can’t buy happiness forgot little puppies.

Gene Hill

 

How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it a leg.

Abraham Lincoln

 

All of the animals except for man know that the principle business of life is to enjoy it.

Samuel Butler

 

If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans.

James Herriot

The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself, too.

Samuel Butler

The more I see of man, the more I like dogs

Mme. de Stael
