In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.
Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened.
You cannot share your life with a dog, as I had done in Bournemouth, or a cat, and not know perfectly well that animals have personalities and minds and feelings.
The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.
Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.
