I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.

I trust a good deal to common fame, as we all must. If a man has good corn, or wood, or boards, or pigs, to sell, or can make better chairs or knives, crucibles or church organs, than anybody else, you will find a broad hard-beaten road to his house, though it be in the woods.ralph waldo emerson
The wisest man I ever knew in my whole life could not read or write. At four o'clock in the morning, when the promise of a new day still lingered over French lands, he got up from his pallet and left for the fields, taking to pasture the half-dozen pigs whose fertility nourished him and his wife...josé saramago
More people are killed every year by pigs than by sharks, which shows you how good we are at evaluating risk.bruce schneier
You tell your Governor, your attorney general and all the bigoted pigs outside that if one person on Rancho Rajneesh is harmed I will have 15 of their heads, and I mean it. You have given me no choice. Even though I am a nonviolent person I will do that.ma anand sheela

They who would be great in our little government seem as ridiculous to me as schoolboys who?climb a crab- tree, venturing their necks for fruit which solid pigs would disdain if they were not starving.Rochester, John Wilmot, 2nd Earl of
"I'm on a search for the truth," she says during a recent visit to the District to promote her new book, "Objection!," in which the former prosecutor calls defense attorneys "dangerous" and compares them to pigs.

She'd never cross over to what she calls the "dark side" because "I don't really want to have any part of getting guilty people off."nancy grace
