It is better to die on your feet than live on your knees. No pasara n! See Pet ain 649:74.
Pet ownership is an absolutely abysmal situation brought about by human manipulation.ingrid newkirk
On a couple of occasions I've shocked myself. Pet Sematery was appalling when it first came out on to the page.Stephen King
Oh, forgiveness is my middle name. Well, actually it's LaVelle, and I'd appreciate it if you guard that secret with your life. -- Xander Harris, Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Teacher's Pet"
I was an ugly kid. I worked in a Pet store. People kept asking how big I get.rodney dangerfield
To say it is a dog's breakfast is an insult to the Pet food industry.rhodri morgan
You don't have to own squirrels and starlings to get enjoyment from them ... One day, we would like an end to Pet shops and the breeding of animals. [Dogs] would pursue their natural lives in the wild ... they would have full lives, not wasting at home for someone to come home in the evening and Pet them and then sit there and watch TV.ingrid newkirk
As a young child Audrey Carsons wanted to be writers because writers were rich and famous. They lounged around Singapore and Rangoon smoking opium in a yellow pongee silk suit. They sniffed cocaine in Mayfair and they penetrated forbidden swamps with a faithful native boy and lived in the native quarter of Tangier smoking hashish and languidly caressing a Pet gazelle.William S. Burroughs
I thought it would be lovely to use [Pet bulldog] Noelle as an example to teach the importance of being who you are. For me it's important to inspire children in a positive way, and at times they understand more messages through entertainment than when one is talking to them directly.gloria estefan
If Michael Jackson could write a song for a rat, I could write a song for [my Pet bulldog] Noelle.gloria estefan
Each civilization may choose one of two roads to travel, that is, either fret itself to death, or Pet itself to death. And in the course of doing one or the other, it eats its way into the Universe, turning cinders and flinders of stars into toilet seats, pegs, gears, cigarette holders and pillowcases, and it does this because, unable to fathom the Universe, it seeks to change that Fathomlessness into Something Fathomable.stanisław lem
If we are uncritical we shall always find what we want: we shall look for, and find, confirmations, and we shall look away from, and not see, whatever might be dangerous to our Pet theories. In this way it is only too easy to obtain what appears to be overwhelming evidence in favor of a theory which, if approached critically, would have been refuted.karl popper
That, by the accident of an illegality in the codicil to his will, it should have been possible for Hugh Lane's Pet collection to be snaffled by the British Government, is a fitting conclusion to the shabby story of England's appreciation of French impressionist painting.frank rutter
It's one of those rare "perfect" kernels. So if it doesn't happen to compile with your config (or it does compile, but then does unspeakable acts of perversion with your Pet dachshund), you can rest easy knowing that it's all your own damn fault, and you should just fix your evil ways.linus torvalds
Then I cast loose my buff coat, each halter let fall, Shook off both my jack-boots, let go belt and all, Stood up in the stirrup, leaned, patted his ear, Called my Roland his Pet name, my horse without peer; Clapped my hands, laughed and sang, any noise bad or good, 'Til at length into Aix Roland galloped and stood.Robert Browning
Note: Ratigan's henchman Bartholomew falls into some alcohol and emerges very drunk and calls his boss "the world's greatest rat". Since Ratigan hates being called a rat and prefers the term of "a big mouse", he sentences him to death at the hands of his Pet cat, who eats him up while he's still drunkenly singing of Ratigan's glory, unaware of what is about to happen despite Ratigan telling him.

A leopard doesn't change his spots just because you bring him in from the jungle and try to housebreak him and turn him into a Pet. He may learn to sheathe his claws in order to beg a few scraps off the dinner table, and you may teach him to be a beast of burden, but it doesn't pay to forget that he'll al ways be what he was born: a wild animal.
It is a good thing for a research scientist to discard a Pet hypothesis every day before breakfast.
Come on, kiddies, have some ice cream. I'll let you Pet Mr. Whiskers!
This is one of my Pet peeves: Countries that will not tax their elite who expect us to come in and help them serve their people are just not going to get the kind of help from us that historically they may have.
