They say that dogs lick their own genitalia because they can. But I think it's at least partially because they don't have the Internet.scott adams
Anyone who hates children and dogs can't be all bad.w. c. fields
Let dogs delight to bark and bite,For God hath made them so;Let bears and lions growl and fight,For 't is their nature too.Isaac Watts
Shakespeare a plagiarist Beethoven with a horn stuck into his head against deafness the impossibility the impossibility Nietzsche gone totally mad the impossibility of being human all too human this breathing in and out out and in these punks these cowards these champions these mad dogs of glory moving this little bit of light toward us impossibly.Charles Bukowski
The distant dogs howled, the melancholy kine complained, and the winds went on raging, whilst furious sheets of rain drove along the roof; but the Majesty of England slept on, undisturbed, and the calf did the same, it being a simple creature, and not easily troubled by storms or embarrassed by sleeping with a king.mark twain
To his dog, every man is Napoleon ; hence the constant popularity of dogs.aldous huxley
The new masters paint a subject as they please, And Veronese is prosecuted by the Inquisition For the dogs playing at the feet of Christ, The earth is a planet among galaxies. Later Christ disappears, the dogs disappear: in abstract Understanding, without adoration, the last master puts Colors on canvas, a picture of the universe In which a bright spot somewhere in the corner Is the small radioactive planet men called Earth.Randall Jarrell
The meeting in the open of two dogs, strangers to each other, is one of the most painful, thrilling, and pregnant of all conceivable encounters; it is surrounded by an atmosphere of the last canniness, presided over by a constraint for which I have no preciser name; they simply cannot pass each other, their mutual embarrassment is frightful to behold.thomas mann
I have known many dogs, and many a story I could tell of their wisdom and devotion; but to none do I owe so much as to Stickeen.

Our storm-battle for life brought him to light, and through him as through a window I have ever since been looking with deeper sympathy into all my fellow mortals.john muir
“Do your neighbors burn one another alive?” was how Fraa Orolo began his conversation with Artisan Flec. “Do your shamans walk around on stilts?” Fraa Orolo asked, reading from a leaf that, judging by its brownness, was at least five centuries old. Then he looked up and added helpfully, “You might call them pastors or witch doctors.” “When a child gets sick, do you pray? Sacrifice to a painted stick? Or blame it on an old lady?” “Do you fancy you will see your dead dogs and cats in some sort of afterlife?”neal stephenson
From mad dogs and grumbling professors may we all be delivered, and may we never take the complaint from either of them.
See how the mountain goat hangs from the summit of the cliff; you would expect it to fall; it is merely showing its contempt for the dogs.
dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.Orhan Pamuk
You can't do too much for dogs, and all you do for them they will repay you a hundredfold.Alvin George Eberhart
You cannot teach old dogs new tricks.
Cæsar's spirit, ranging for revenge, With Até by his side come hot from hell, Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice Cry "Havoc," and let slip the dogs of war.
"Wars don't ennoble men, it turns them into dogs, poisons the soul."
dogs make you walk. Politics make you think.Only boredom makes you old.
