Rats and roaches live by competition under the laws of supply and demand; it is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy.
A rotten carcass of a boat, not rigged, Nor tackle, sail, nor mast; the very Rats Instinctively have quit it.william shakespeare
The possibility that empathy resides in parts of the brain so ancient that we share them with Rats should give pause to anyone comparing politicians with those poor, underestimated creatures.frans de waal
No! How could I be defeated again by a pack of filthy street Rats?!
Rats! They fought the dogs and killed the cats, And bit the babies in the cradles. And ate the cheeses out of the vats.Robert Browning
Rats desert a sinking ship. (Strauss, 1994 p. 1150)
Rats! They fought the dogs and killed the cats, And bit the babies in the cradles, And ate the cheeses out of the vats, And licked the soup from the cooks' own ladles, Split open the kegs of salted spRats, Made nests inside men's Sunday hats, And even spoiled the women's chats By drowning their speaking With shrieking and squeaking In fifty different sharps and flats.Robert Browning
It was the best place to be, thought Wilbur, this warm delicious cellar, with the garrulous geese, the changing seasons, the heat of the sun, the passage of swallows, the nearness of Rats, the sameness of sheep, the love of spiders, the smell of manure, and the glory of everything.
Traditionally, psychology has been the study of two populations: university freshmen and white Rats.
My subjects are like Rats in a basket.
You can't make cheese from Rats. ... It's hard enough just milking the little beggars.arthur m. jolly
If we are to be the last of the White men who conquered the world; if we are finally to be overwhelmed by a pack of Rats, let us at least face the death of our race as our ancestors faced their death---like MEN. Let us not crawl down amongst the Rats begging for mercy or trying to out-sneak them and pretend to be Rats ourselves!George Lincoln Rockwell
Doing research on the Web is like using a library assembled piecemeal by pack Rats and vandalized nightly.roger ebert
The old shepherd had died, or got drunk, or got Rats, or got the sack, or a legacy, or got sane, or chucked it, or got lost, or found, or a wife, or had cut his throat, or hanged himself, or got into Parliament or the peerage anyway, anything had happened to him that can happen to an old shepherd or any other man in the bush, and he wasn't there.henry lawson
Do we write books so that they shall merely be read? Don't we also write them for employment in the household? For one that is read from start to finish, thousands are leafed through, other thousands lie motionless, others are jammed against mouseholes, thrown at Rats, others are stood on, sat on, drummed on, have gingerbread baked on them or are used to light pipes.Georg Christoph Lichtenberg
[Pigeons are] Rats with wings.Ken Livingstone
Sandy Bates: What was that? What was that?
Dorrie: Hey, that's so pretty. A pigeon!
Sandy Bates: Geez ... no, it's not pretty at all. They're... they're... they're rats with wings.
When the water reaches the upper deck, follow the Rats.h. l. mencken
Think of lab Rats racing through a maze, when you watch the sub-intelligent, dual-panel 'dialogue' ... Each rat runs with a designated, neatly bifurcated (Republican or Democratic) political orthodoxy. Each is a 'maze-bright' rat, and not the possessor and giver of any truth.ilana mercer
As an experimental psychologist, I have been trained not to believe anything unless it can be demonstrated in the laboratory on Rats or sophomores.steven pinker
Great collections of books are subject to certain accidents besides the damp, the worms, and the Rats; one not less common is that of the borrowers, not to say a word of the purloiners.
The concept of man as mass robot was both an expression of and a powerful motive force in industrialized mass society. It was the basis for behavioural engineering in commercial, economic, political and other advertising and propaganda; the expanding economy of the 'affluent society' could not subsist without such manipulation. Only by manipulating humans ever more into Skinnerian Rats, robots buying automata, homeostatically adjusted conformers and opportunists (or, bluntly speaking, into morons and zombies) can this great society follow its progress toward ever increasing gross national product.

Jefferson was against any needless official apparel, but if the gown was to carry, he said: "For Heaven's sake discard the monstrous wig which makes the English judges look like Rats peeping through bunches of oakum."benjamin harrison
