Dogs quotes by Richelle Mead
#1. We could, you know, go out for hot dogs. Don't worry - they're not actually dogs. It's just a name. They're these meat things that you put on buns - that's a kind of bread - and then you top them with other things and - "

"I know what a hot dog is," interrupted Mark.

"You do?" I asked, legitimately surprised. "How?"

"We're not that remote. We have TV and movies. Besides, I've left Siberia, you know. I've been to the U.S."

"Really? Did you try a hot dog?"

"No," he said. "I was offered one … but it didn't look that appetizing."

"What!" I exclaimed. "Blasphemy. They're delicious."

"Aren't they compressed animal parts?" he pushed.

"Well, yeah… I think so. But so is sausage."

Mark shook his head. "I don't know. Something's just not right about a hot dog."

"Not right? I think you mean so right. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Dogs quotes by Sue Halpern
#2. It was as if her mind were a theater where bad actors could be run off the stage by a pack of adorable, yelping dogs. #Quote by Sue Halpern
Dogs quotes by Eric Koston
#3. You wanna hang with the big dogs, you can't piss like a pup. #Quote by Eric Koston
Dogs quotes by Daniel N. Robinson
#4. It is only in the philosophy of the seminar room that serious doubts are raised as to weather or not dogs and cats and other animals have consciousness. We all know how aware they are of their surroundings... and of us... they leave no doubt when they are in pain... #Quote by Daniel N. Robinson
Dogs quotes by David Foster Wallace
#5. The night-noises of the metro night: harbor-wind skirling on angled cement, the shush and sheen of overpass traffic, TPs' laughter in interior rooms, the yowl of unresolved cat-life. Horns blatting off in the harbor. Receding sirens. Confused inland gulls' cries. Broken glass from far away. Car horns in gridlock, arguments in languages, more broken glass, running shoes, a woman's either laugh or scream from who can tell how far, coming off the grid. Dogs defending whatever dog-yards they pass by, the sounds of chains and risen hackles. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Dogs quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#6. People are all exactly alike. There's no such thing as a race and barely such a thing as an ethnic group. If we were dogs, we'd be the same breed. George Bush and an Australian Aborigine have fewer differences than a Lhasa apso and a toy fox terrier. A Japanese raised in Riyadh would be an Arab. A Zulu raised in New Rochelle would be an orthodontist. People are all the same, though their circumstances differ terribly. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Dogs quotes by Melanie Joy
#7. We love dogs and eat cows not because dogs and cows are fundamentally different
cows, like dogs, have feelings, preferences, and consciousness
but because our perception of them is different. #Quote by Melanie Joy
Dogs quotes by H.L. Mencken
#8. It is not the drinker, but the man who has just stopped drinking, who thinks the world is going to the dogs. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Dogs quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#9. Selena was born in a generation that had grown up on the edge. She'd grown up knowing that the little child starlet who voiced Anne-Marie on 'All Dogs Go to Heaven', Judith Barsi, had been murdered and set on fire by her own father. She'd grown up knowing that school shootings were more common than winning the lottery. She'd grown up in an age of terror. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Dogs quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#10. Dogs again had it right. They didn't trouble themselves with mysteries that could never be solved anyway. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Dogs quotes by Aravind Adiga
#11. He read me another poem, and another one - and he explained the true history of poetry, which is a kind of secret, a magic known only to wise men. Mr. Premier, I won't be saying anything new if I say that the history of the world is the history of a ten-thousand-year war of brains between the rich and the poor. Each side is eternally trying to hoodwink the other side: and it has been this way since the start of time. The poor win a few battles (the peeing in the potted plants, the kicking of the pet dogs, etc.) but of course the rich have won the war for ten thousand years. That's why, on day, some wise men, out of compassion for the poor, left them signs and symbols in poems, which appear to be about roses and pretty girls and things like that, but when understood correctly spill out secrets that allow the poorest man on earth to conclude the ten-thousand-year-old brain-war on terms favorable to himself. #Quote by Aravind Adiga
Dogs quotes by David Paul Kirkpatrick
#12. Take heart. Love has overcome the wild world. Dogs were once wolves. #Quote by David Paul Kirkpatrick
Dogs quotes by Carolyn  Parkhurst
#13. PERHAPS, AND THIS IS WHERE MY BREATH CATCHES IN MY THROAT, PERHAPS SHE LET HERSELF FALL. THE DAY WAS HERS TO CHOOSE AND PERHAPS IN THAT TREETOP MOMENT WHEN SHE LOOKED DOWN AND SAW THE YARD, THE WORLD, HER LIFE, SPREAD OUT BELOW HER, PERHAPS SHE CHOSE TO PLUNGE TOWARD IT HEADLONG. PERHAPS SHE SAW BEFORE HER A LIFETIME OF WALKING ON THE RUINED EARTH AND CHOSE, INSTEAD, A SINGLE MOMENT IN THE AIR." - THE DOGS OF BABEL, PG. 79 #Quote by Carolyn Parkhurst
Dogs quotes by Jon Ronson
#14. We should be like dogs. #Quote by Jon Ronson
Dogs quotes by Cynthia Lynden
#15. untrained dogs and they will urinate over them. Purchase a crate or cage that is big enough for your pup to lie down, turn around, and stand up in. Create a food and potty schedule. It should include: Meal Potty Time Play Time Training Time Sleep in Crate Repeat from A Every Four Hours No matter what, don't leave your poor pup in the crate all the time. At the same time, though, the crate should give it time to relax and nap between potty and play sessions. Walk the dog about 15-30 minutes after every meal. Always praise the dog for going outside. Never ever use hitting or yelling if the dog has an accident in the house. Now, as far as behavior training, you will need to follow a schedule to make sure neither you nor the pup gets too tired or frustrated. That's what we are going to talk about next. #Quote by Cynthia Lynden
Dogs quotes by Ivan Rusilko
#16. What is Destiny?

Is it a doctrine formulated by aristocrats and philosophers arguing that there is some unseen driving force predicting the outcomes of every minuscule and life altering moment in one's life? Or is it the artistry illustrated by those under-qualifed and over-eager to give their future meaning and their ambitions hope?

Is it a declaration by those who refuse to accept that we are alone in this universe, spinning randomly through a matrix of accidental coincidences? Or is it the assumptions made by those who concede that there is a divine plan or pre-ordained path for each human being,regardless of their current station?

I think destiny is a bit of a tease....

It's syndical taunts and teases mock those naive enough to believe in its black jack dealing of inevitable futures. Its evolution from puppy dogs and ice cream to razor blades and broken mirrors characterizes the fickle nature of its sordid underbelly. Those relying on its decisive measures will fracture under its harsh rules. Those embracing the fact that life happens at a million miles a minute will flourish in its random grace.

Destiny has afforded me the most magical memories and unbelievably tragic experiences that have molded and shaped my life into what it is today...beautiful.
I fully accept the mirage that destiny promises and the reality it can produce. Without the invisible momentum carried with its sincere fabrication of coming attra #Quote by Ivan Rusilko
Dogs quotes by Juliana Hatfield
#17. Puerto Rico has a stray dog problem. Tens of thousands of homeless canines - hundreds of thousands, by some estimates - live and die on the streets and beaches all over this Caribbean island of almost four million people. #Quote by Juliana Hatfield
Dogs quotes by Tim Allen
#18. Dogs will eat till they die. Cats will leave food in the dish, incomprehensible to a dog. #Quote by Tim Allen
Dogs quotes by Bill Burr
#19. It's not until you're an adult you appreciate how awesome a dog is. Your dreams start dying, somebody cheats on ya, bankers fuck up your 401k, ya know? Then you come home and that dog's looking at you and he's like, 'Dude, you're awesome!' It's like, 'No dude, YOU are fucking awesome! #Quote by Bill Burr
Dogs quotes by Mira Grant
#20. Good dogs should never be asked to prove that they're good dogs. If there's anything in this world that we should take on faith, it's good dogs. #Quote by Mira Grant
Dogs quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#21. Yet,'said Maturin, pursuing his own thought, 'there is a quality in dogs, I must confess, rarely to be seen elsewhere and that is affection: I do not mean the violent possessive protective love for their owner but rather that mild, steady attachment to their friends that we see quite often in the best sort of dog. And when you consider the rarity of plain disinterested affection among our own kind, once we are adult, alas - when you consider how immensely it enhances daily life and how it enriches a man's past and future, so that he can look backward and forward with complacency - why, it is a pleasure to find it in brute creation. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Dogs quotes by Bill Rodgers
#22. Don't feel guilty about driving somewhere nice to run. If people can drive to a park to eat hot dogs, you can drive there to run. #Quote by Bill Rodgers
Dogs quotes by Jack London
#23. From then on it was war between them. Spitz, as lead-dog and acknowledged master of the team, felt his supremacy threatened by this strange Southland dog. And strange Buck was to him, for of the many Southland dogs he had known, not one had shown up worthily in camp and on trail. They were all too soft, dying under the toil, the frost, and starvation. Buck was the exception. He alone endured and prospered, matching the husky in strength, savagery, and cunning. Then he was a masterful dog, and what made him dangerous was the fact that the club of the man in the red sweater had knocked all blind pluck and rashness out of his desire for mastery. He was preeminently cunning, and could bide his time with a patience that was nothing less than primitive. #Quote by Jack London
Dogs quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#24. Moreover, I have boundary issues with men. Or maybe that's not fair to say. To have issues with boundaries, one must have boundaries in the first place, right? But I disappear into
the person I love. I am the permeable membrane. If I love you, you can have everything. You can have my time, my devotion, my ass, my money, my family, my dog, my dog's money, my
dog's time - everything. If I love you, I will carry for you all your pain, I will assume for you all your debts (in every definition of the word), I will protect you from your own insecurity, I will project upon you all sorts of good qualities that you have never actually cultivated in yourself and I will buy Christmas presents for your entire family. I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check. I will give you all this and more, until I get so exhausted and depleted that the only way I can recover my energy is by becoming infatuated with someone else.
I do not relay these facts about myself with pride, but this is how it's always been.
Some time after I'd left my husband, I was at a party and a guy I barely knew said to me, "You know, you seem like a completely different person, now that you're with this new boyfriend. You used to look like your husband, but now you look like David. You even dress like
him and talk like him. You know how some people look like their dogs? I think maybe you always look like your men. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Dogs quotes by Andria Large
#25. The seminar was long and boring and Quinn was seriously cranky. He did not want to go through another two days of sitting through watching some stick-up-his-ass talk about shit he already knew. Margot paid attention for the first half of it, but she started to get bored, also. And when Margot gets bored, she fidgets. Quinn almost strangled her today. He thought about many creative ways to end her fidgeting, many of them involved duct tape. Duct tape was a man's best friend after all...no wait, that was dogs. #Quote by Andria Large
Dogs quotes by Raymond Coppinger
#26. More importantly, modern dogs simply don't behave like modern wolves. Popular dog "experts" like Cesar Millan may tell you that a good dog owner needs to play the role of the alpha wolf, the dominant pack leader. But the fact is that dogs don't live in hierarchically organized packs. Indeed it's doubtful that most wolves live this way. #Quote by Raymond Coppinger
Dogs quotes by Francesca Lia Block
#27. You always fed strays and bent down to talk to the dogs you met on the street, looking straight into their eyes as if they were old friends. (Maybe they are, you said. From another life.) You liked to go to the pound and look at them. You tried to send them messages of comfort. I couldn't go because I started crying the one time I tried. All those eyes and the barks like sobs. #Quote by Francesca Lia Block
Dogs quotes by Virginia Woolf
#28. But Orlando was a woman - Lord Palmerston had just proved it. And when we are writing the life of a woman, we may, it is agreed, waive our demand for action, and substitute love instead. Love, the poet has said, is woman's whole existence. And if we look for a moment at Orlando writing at her table, we must admit that never was there a woman more fitted for that calling. Surely, since she is a woman, and a beautiful woman, and a woman in the prime of life, she will soon give over this pretence of writing and thinking and begin at least to think of a gamekeeper (and as long as she thinks of a man, nobody objects to a woman thinking). And then she will write him a little note (and as long as she writes little notes nobody objects to a woman writing either) and make an assignation for Sunday dusk and Sunday dusk will come; and the gamekeeper will whistle under the window - all of which is, of course, the very stuff of life and the only possible subject for fiction. Surely Orlando must have done one of these things? Alas, - a thousand times, alas, Orlando did none of them. Must it then be admitted that Orlando was one of those monsters of iniquity who do not love? She was kind to dogs, faithful to friends, generosity itself to a dozen starving poets, had a passion for poetry. But love - as the male novelists define it - and who, after all, speak with greater authority? - has nothing whatever to do with kindness, fidelity, generosity, or poetry. Love is slipping off one' #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Dogs quotes by Loren Eiseley
#29. Though men in the mass forget the origins of their need, they still bring wolfhounds into city apartments, where dog and man both sit brooding in wistful discomfort.
The magic that gleams an instant between Argos and Odysseus is both the recognition of diversity and the need for affection across the illusions of form. It is nature's cry to homeless, far-wandering, insatiable man: Do not forget your brethren, nor the green wood from which you sprang. To do so is to invite disaster. #Quote by Loren Eiseley
Dogs quotes by Fakeer Ishavardas
#30. Yeah, I love your hateful messiahs and gods, as I cherish all idiots, and mad dogs. #Quote by Fakeer Ishavardas
Dogs quotes by Robert Harris
#31. This sort of talk always bores me: old men complaining that the world is going to the dogs. It's so banal. #Quote by Robert Harris
Dogs quotes by Charles Bukowski
#32. If I write badly about blacks, homosexuals and women, it is because of these who I met were that. There are many 'bads' - bad dogs, bad censorship; there are even 'bad' white males. Only, when you write about 'bad' white males, they don't complain about it. And need I say that there are 'good' blacks, 'good' homosexuals and 'good' women? #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Dogs quotes by David Rosenfelt
#33. The face of a golden retriever feels like home. #Quote by David Rosenfelt
Dogs quotes by Jack London
#34. Seven days from the time they pulled into Dawson, they dropped down the steep bank by the Barracks to the Yukon Trail, and pulled for Dyea and Salt Water. Perrault was carrying despatches if anything more urgent than those he had brought in; also, the travel pride had gripped him, and he purposed to make the record trip of the year. Several things favored him in this. The week's rest had recuperated the dogs and put them in thorough trim. The trail they had broken into the country was packed hard by later journeyers. And further, the police had arranged in two or three places deposits of grub for dog and man, and he was travelling light. #Quote by Jack London
Dogs quotes by Will Durant
#35. All forms of governments destroy themselves, by carrying their basic principles to excess. Democracies become too free in politics, in economics, in morals – even in literature and art, until at last even the dogs in our homes, rise up on their hind legs and demand their rights. Disorder grows to such a point that society will then abandon all its liberty to anyone who can restore order. #Quote by Will Durant
Dogs quotes by Lloyd Jones
#36. Stories have a job to do. They can't just lie around like lazybone dogs. They have to teach you something. #Quote by Lloyd Jones
Dogs quotes by Eddie Izzard
#37. You have no control over your cat! You can't say to your cat, Cat, heel! Stay! Wait! Lie down! Roll over! 'Cause the cat's just gonna be sitting there going, Interesting words ... have you finished? While you're shouting all this to your cat, your dog's next to you, going ... What the hell are you doing? I'm talking to the cat! Oh, I'm sorry! #Quote by Eddie Izzard
Dogs quotes by Princess Anne
#38. Golf seems to be an arduous way to go for a walk. I prefer to take the dog's out. #Quote by Princess Anne
Dogs quotes by Annie Ward
#39. I feel more like I am in the Middle East than in any recognizable part of Europe. There really are wild dogs everywhere, and they cry all night long. There is a least a miserable, bohemian glamour to the life here. There are a ton of outdoor cafes with people smoking and drinking rakia. Gypsies leading dancing bears around on leashes, attractive people, glue-sniffing teenage gangs - contradictions everywhere. My email is hard-wired into a big, gaping hole in the apartment wall and ants and little spiders keep crawling out. I am trying to keep an open mind. #Quote by Annie Ward
Dogs quotes by Patti Smith
#40. I come from a real working class background, and I didn't know anyone sophisticated - except I saw Edie Sedgewick once at the Art Museum in Philly. She had these black leotards and little black pumps and this big ermine cape and all these white dogs and black sunglasses and black eyes. She was classy! #Quote by Patti Smith
Dogs quotes by Bob Peterson
#41. I've owned a lot of dogs in my life - Marcela, Rusty, Petey Pup, Precious, Rosy and Ava. Each were in love with life's simple pleasures, but being people in dog suits, as they seem to be, they each had a defined personality! #Quote by Bob Peterson
Dogs quotes by Bob Hope
#42. The trees in Siberia are miles apart, that is why the dogs are so fast. #Quote by Bob Hope
Dogs quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#43. Let the cats rule the world; first thing they will do is to increase the number of mousetraps! Let the rats rule the world; first thing they will do is to increase the number of dogs! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Dogs quotes by Henry N. Beard
#44. The Prologue to TERRITORY LOST

"Of cats' first disobedience, and the height
Of that forbidden tree whose doom'd ascent
Brought man into the world to help us down
And made us subject to his moods and whims,
For though we may have knock'd an apple loose
As we were carried safely to the ground,
We never said to eat th'accursed thing,
But yet with him were exiled from our place
With loss of hosts of sweet celestial mice
And toothsome baby birds of paradise,
And so were sent to stray across the earth
And suffer dogs, until some greater Cat
Restore us, and regain the blissful yard,
Sing, heavenly Mews, that on the ancient banks
Of Egypt's sacred river didst inspire
That pharaoh who first taught the sons of men
To worship members of our feline breed:
Instruct me in th'unfolding of my tale;
Make fast my grasp upon my theme's dark threads
That undistracted save by naps and snacks
I may o'ercome our native reticence
And justify the ways of cats to men. #Quote by Henry N. Beard
Dogs quotes by Kevin Hearne
#45. Lie down and offer your throat. No, wait, that's how dogs submit. I know! Offer her you're wallet! Oberon #Quote by Kevin Hearne
Dogs quotes by Eric Stoltz
#46. I have several dogs and several cats who aren't really mine. In fact, they think that I am theirs. I'd like to have some goats and chickens, but I travel around too much. #Quote by Eric Stoltz
Dogs quotes by Suzanne Hetts
#47. There are disagreements and conflicts in the relationship, but each individual cares enough about the other to make up and forgive. (Dogs forgive us far easier than we forgive them.) Parents #Quote by Suzanne Hetts
Dogs quotes by Michael Madsen
#48. You kids shouldn't play so rough ... somebody's gonna start crying. #Quote by Michael Madsen
Dogs quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#49. Politicians are always interested in people. Not that this is always a virtue. Fleas are interested in dogs. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Dogs quotes by Paulo Coelho
#50. Mouse was always depressed because he was afraid of cats. A great wizard took pity on him and turned him into a cat. Then he started to be afraid of dogs, and so the wizard turned him into a dog. Then he began to fear tigers. The wizard, who was very patient, used his powers to turn him into a tiger. Then he was afraid of hunters. Finally, the wizard gave up and turned him back into a mouse, saying: Nothing I do will help you, because you never understood your growth. You are better being what you always were. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Dogs quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#51. When I quit my university, people in my neighborhood quite literally began to gossip about me being insane, while others pitied me as a lost soul. But mark this my friend, it's the lost souls that lay the foundation for a better tomorrow, because those beings are not afraid to be lost, they are not afraid to fail, in the pursuit of something greater, something grander, than to just survive no different than the dogs do on the streets. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Dogs quotes by Doug Larson
#52. In debating the respective merits of dogs and cats, not having to walk a cat when it's 20 below zero deserves consideration. #Quote by Doug Larson
Dogs quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#53. I was an only, and often lonely, child. After they'd had me, my parents, who'd met back in Pakistan when they were both around forty, had decided against tempting fate a second time. I remember how I would eye with envy all the kids in our neighborhood, in my school, who had a little brother or sister. How bewildered I was by the way some of them treated each other, oblivious to their own good luck. They acted like wild dogs. Pinching, hitting, pushing, betraying one another any way they could think of. Laughing about it too. They wouldn't speak to one another. I didn't understand. Me, I spent most of my early years craving a sibling. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Dogs quotes by Arthur Phillips
#54. Maria, groaning for scraps, would drape his head on my feet as I ate, trying to camouflage himself as my napkin or the rug. #Quote by Arthur Phillips
Dogs quotes by C.S. Lewis
#55. The Dogs were still with them. They joined in the conversation but not very much because they were too busy racing on ahead and racing back and rushing off to sniff at smells in the grass till they made themselves sneeze. Suddenly they picked up a scent which seemed to excite them very much. They all started arguing about it - Yes it is - No it isn't - That's just what I said - anyone can smell what that is - Take your great nose out of the way and let someone else smell. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Dogs quotes by Ned Vizzini
#56. I used to like the foods that come in abstract shapes: chicken nuggets, Fruit Roll-Ups, hot dogs. #Quote by Ned Vizzini
Dogs quotes by Charles Bukowski
#57. Yes Yes
when God created love he didn't help most
when God created dogs He didn't help dogs
when God created plants that was average
when God created hate we had a standard utility
when God created me He created me
when God created the monkey He was asleep
when He created the giraffe He was drunk
when He created narcotics He was high
and when He created suicide He was low
when He created you lying in bed
He knew what He was doing
He was drunk and He was high
and He created the mountains and the sea and fire at the same time
He made some mistakes
but when He created you lying in bed
He came all over His Blessed Universe. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Dogs quotes by Jon Katz
#58. It's interesting that my neighbor Irv, who saw dogs so differently, knew all the kids and people on the block and could recite the family history of each house until about a decade ago. Now few of our neighbors can name more than a handful of people who live on the street. They have little to do with local government, and vote sporadically, at best. In the evenings and on weekends, they go their own ways. Their kids are repeatedly warned about talking to people they don't know. #Quote by Jon Katz
Dogs quotes by Josh Billings
#59. In the whole history of the world there is but one thing that money cannot buy ... to wit
the wag of a dog's tail. #Quote by Josh Billings
Dogs quotes by Chris Kirkpatrick
#60. I think my favorite place to eat dinner is the movie theater. Dirty dogs, a big thing of nachos and a Cherry Coke - and I'm good. #Quote by Chris Kirkpatrick
Dogs quotes by Halston Sage
#61. I like to Instagram my dogs! I also get excited to post behind-the-scenes photos from when I was filming something. #Quote by Halston Sage
Dogs quotes by Stanley Coren
#62. From the dog's viewpoint, however, they are directly asserting dominance with that stare. When you respond by giving him what he wants, the dog interprets this as a submissive gesture on your part, and also reads this as your acceptance that the dog has a higher status in the pack than you do. #Quote by Stanley Coren
Dogs quotes by Barbara Woodhouse
#63. Dogs understand your moods and your thoughts, and if you are thinking unpleasant things about your dog, he will pick it up and be downhearted. #Quote by Barbara Woodhouse
Dogs quotes by Ann Beattie
#64. Nothing is so lovely as a quietly snoring dog and some evening Brahms, as you sit in a comfortably overstuffed chair with your feet on the footstool. #Quote by Ann Beattie
Dogs quotes by Patricia MacLachlan
#65. Melinda Pratt rides city bus number twelve to her cello lesson, wearing her mother's jean jacket and only one sock. Hallo, world, says Minna. Minna often addresses the world, sometimes silently, sometimes out loud. Bus number twelve is her favorite place for watching, inside and out. The bus passes cars and bicycles and people walking dogs. It passes store windows, and every so often Minna sees her face reflection, two dark eyes in a face as pale as a winter dawn. There are fourteen people on the bus today. Minna stands up to count them. She likes to count people, telephone poles, hats, umbrellas, and, lately, earrings. One girl, sitting directly in front of Minna, has seven earrings, five in one ear. She has wisps of dyed green hair that lie like forsythia buds against her neck.

There are, Minna knows, a king, a past president of the United States, and a beauty queen on the bus. Minna can tell by looking. The king yawns and scratches his ear with his little finger. Scratches, not picks. The beauty queen sleeps, her mouth open, her hair the color of tomatoes not yet ripe. The past preside of the United States reads Teen Love and Body Builder's Annual.

Next to Minna, leaning against the seat, is her cello in its zippered canvas case. Next to her cello is her younger brother, McGrew, who is humming. McGrew always hums. Sometimes he hums sentences, though most often it comes out like singing. McGrew's teachers do not enjoy McGrew answering questions in hu #Quote by Patricia MacLachlan
Dogs quotes by Nicollette Sheridan
#66. Fatty, a bearded collie-terrier mix, is the kindest, cuddliest dog. And Oliver, a white golden retriever, even looks like me! My dogs have taught me to be more loving, more nurturing, and happier. #Quote by Nicollette Sheridan
Dogs quotes by Georgette Heyer
#67. Frederica tells the park-keepers that Lufra is a purebred "Barcelona collie".
Alverstoke catches on and says "No, Frederica! I TOLD you
it is a HOUND, from Baluchistan!"
She: "Oh, you might have mentioned it was from ASIA! Very remote; the dog had to be smuggled out because the natives were hostile. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Dogs quotes by Katherine McIntyre
#68. Mislabeled the sign," a cocky voice called from the door. "Should read 'Doggie Daycare' with the number of pups packed into this place. #Quote by Katherine McIntyre
Dogs quotes by Paige Tyler
#69. I promise you and Tuffie can have lots of play dates," Alex said as he crouched down in front of Leo and affectionately ran his hand over the dog's head. "All you have to do is convince your mom to keep seeing me, and I'll hook you up."
Lacey folded her arms with a laugh. "Now you're trying to blackmail my dog into supporting your dastardly schemes?"
Alex flashed her a grin. "A desperate man does what he has to… #Quote by Paige Tyler
Dogs quotes by Kate DiCamillo
#70. It's hard not to immediately fall in love witha dog who has a good sense of humor. #Quote by Kate DiCamillo
Dogs quotes by Rebel Wilson
#71. Up until the age of 12, I went to dog shows every weekend. Mum showed beagles. It's a really competitive and eclectic world filled with characters who wear interesting outfits - similar to 'Toddlers & Tiaras,' but with dogs. #Quote by Rebel Wilson
Dogs quotes by Milan Kundera
#72. God has been kind to dogs in no putting a sense of beauty into their heads. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Dogs quotes by Joel M. McMains
#73. They were as different as honesty and truth, but it takes experience to see the dissimilarities. Rocky was friendly, outgoing and boisterous; Charger was sullen, withdrawn and paranoid. Rocky liked people; Charger didn't. Rocky could trust; Charger didn't know the meaning of the word. #Quote by Joel M. McMains
Dogs quotes by Bruce Cameron
#74. My main characters are the most sunny, happy, optimistic, loving creatures on the face of the Earth. I couldn't be happier that's where I start. I can put as many flawed people in the dog's world as I like, but the dog doesn't care. Dog doesn't judge. Dog doesn't dislike. Dog loves. That's not so bad. #Quote by Bruce Cameron

Dogs quotes by John Galsworthy
#77. He was a wanderer by nature, and even if England and the nearer East were closed to him, the world was wide, the sun shone in many places, the stars wheeled over one, books could be read, women had beauty, flowers scent, tobacco its flavour, music its moving power, coffee its fragrance, horses and dogs and birds were the same seductive creatures, #Quote by John Galsworthy
Dogs quotes by Donna Tartt
#78. I liked the idea of living in a city - any city, especially a strange one - liked the thought of traffic and crowds, of working in a bookstore, waiting tables in a coffee shop, who knew what kind of solitary life I might slip into? Meals alone, walking the dogs in the evenings; and nobody knowing who I was. #Quote by Donna Tartt
Dogs quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#79. If anyone wishes for entertainment, such as will prevent him feeling solitary even when he is alone, let me recommend the company of dogs, whose moral and intellectual qualities may almost afford delight and gratification. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Dogs quotes by Bangambiki Habyarimana
#80. Only dogs know and respect their masters. This is a rare characteristic of men who secretly envy their masters and wish their downfall. #Quote by Bangambiki Habyarimana
Dogs quotes by Milorad Pavic
#81. What binds me to the trees is something they know how to do and I don't. All that binds the trees to me is my dogs ,who love me more tonight than other nights. For their hunger is more beautiful when they are hungry from the trees than hungry from me. #Quote by Milorad Pavic
Dogs quotes by Kate McGahan
#82. Our Master puts the desire to procreate in us to be sure that we are fruitful and multiply. He knows how important animals are to the planet because most animals He allows to reproduce in great number. He put every one of us on the ark for a reason. Do you think it's a mistake that dogs and cats have litters of 8, 9, 10 or more and people typically only have one or maybe two? It's no mistake. It's because God intends that there is more than enough four-legged love to go around. #Quote by Kate McGahan
Dogs quotes by Nancy Mitford
#83. Even if I take him out for three hours every day, and go and chat to him for another hour, that leaves twenty hours for him all alone with nothing to do. Oh, why can't dogs read? #Quote by Nancy Mitford
Dogs quotes by Jim Kjelgaard
#84. Slowly, deliberately, the dog turned from the black wolf and walked toward the man. He was a dog, and dogs chose men. #Quote by Jim Kjelgaard
Dogs quotes by Ray Bradbury
#85. The keys to the beetle are on the night table. I always like to drive fast when I feel that way. You get up to around ninety-five and you feel wonderful. Sometimes I drive all night and come back and you don't know it. It's fun out in the country. You hit rabbits, sometimes you hit dogs. Go take the beetle. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Dogs quotes by Jim Butcher
#86. People love dogs. You can never go wrong adding a dog to the story. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Dogs quotes by Ruchita Bahl
#87. Don't open up to everyone. Beware: there are foxes - roaming in the town disguised as dogs. #Quote by Ruchita Bahl
Dogs quotes by Charlyn Khater
#88. A dog might feel as majestic as a lion, might bark as loud as a roar, might have a heart as mighty and brave as a Lion's heart,
But at the end of the day, a dog is a dog and a lion is a lion. #Quote by Charlyn Khater
Dogs quotes by Emily Anthes
#89. Take tail docking…in which the last several inches of a puppy's tail are removed, usually without anesthesia, sometimes with extremely crude instruments such as scissors or razors. The American Kennel Club (AKC), which develops guidelines used to judge canines in competition, prefers boxers, rottweilers, cocker spaniels, and dogs belonging to dozens of other breeds to have docked tails. In other words, an ideal specimen is one that's been surgically reshaped by humans. #Quote by Emily Anthes
Dogs quotes by Alan Furst
#90. Politicians were like talking dogs in a circus: the fact that they existed was uncommonly interesting, but no sane person would actually believe what they said #Quote by Alan Furst
Dogs quotes by Justin Halpern
#91. One day I was on a walk with him and my dog, Angus, who was sniffing around in a bush outside a neighbor's house. My dad turned to me and said, "Look at the dog's asshole."
"What? Why?"
"You can tell by the dilation of his asshole that he's going to shit soon. See. There it goes."
It was at that moment, as my dog emptied his bowels in my neighbor's yard and my dad stood there proudly watching his prediction come true, that I realized how wise, even prophetic, he really is. #Quote by Justin Halpern
Dogs quotes by Ella Minster
#92. This cave is so dark I can't see any of you in your ninja outfits." "Sorry." the boys said and they peeled off their outfits and left them in a pile. The boys left Mollie's mask on because she looked awesome and mysterious, but she pulled it off anyway, because she was a dog and dogs don't wear masks. #Quote by Ella Minster
Dogs quotes by Peter James
#93. I like dogs. Dogs don't judge people. #Quote by Peter James
Dogs quotes by Felicity Kendal
#94. I really do believe there are things passed down. Behaviour, not just DNA. Psychological make-up. You can see it in dogs. If you want to breed a calm dog, don't get two fighters. #Quote by Felicity Kendal

#95. Some of our greatest historical and artistic treasures we place with curators in museums; others we take for walks. #Quote by Roger A. Caras
Dogs quotes by William S. Burroughs
#96. Listen to my last words anywhere. Listen to my last words any world. Listen all you boards syndicates and governments of the earth. And you powers behind what filth consummated in what lavatory to take what is not yours. To sell the ground from unborn feet forever -

"Not The Green Deal - Don't show them that - "
"Not The Orgasm Death - "
"Not the ovens - "
Listen: I call you all. Show your cards all players. Pay it all pay it all pay it all back. Play it all pay it all play it all back. For all to see. In Times Square. In Picadilly.
"Premature. Premature. Give us a little more time."
Time for what? More lies? Premature? Premature for who? I say to all these words are not premature. These words may be too late. Minutes to go. Minutes to foe goal -
"Top Secret - Classified - For The Board - The Elite - The Initiates -
Are these the words of the all-powerful boards and syndicates of the earth? These are the words of liars cowards collaborators traitors. Liars who want time for more lies.

Dogs quotes by Jim Parsons
#97. Apparently, all I do is walk my dogs. In L.A., I have more of a yard existence, and so I enjoy walking my two little dogs in New York - one's a Maltese and the other's a Shih Tzu. #Quote by Jim Parsons
Dogs quotes by Dani Harper
#98. Romans and fairies and death dogs, oh my. #Quote by Dani Harper
Dogs quotes by Matt Groening
#99. Where do babies come from? Don't bother asking adults. They lie like pigs. However, diligent independent research and hours of playground consultation have yielded fruitful, if tentative, results. There are several theories. Near as we can figure out, it has something to do with acting ridiculous in the dark. We believe it is similar to dogs when they act peculiar and ride each other. This is called "making love". Careful study of popular song lyrics, advertising catch-lines, TV sitcoms, movies, and T-Shirt inscriptions offers us significant clues as to its nature. Apparently it makes grown-ups insipid and insane. Some graffiti was once observed that said "sex is good". All available evidence, however, points to the contrary. #Quote by Matt Groening
Dogs quotes by Owen Wilson
#100. There's something people find hilarious about dogs surfing and dancing and talking in the movies. I think it's nice for people - I think it's wish fulfillment - to see animals talking. #Quote by Owen Wilson
Dogs quotes by Zendaya
#101. I think, more than anything else, my dog's death has made me grow up. I find myself thinking about the world in a more serious way. #Quote by Zendaya
Dogs quotes by John Kennedy Toole
#102. On the prow of the wagon, in an attempt to attract business among the Quarterites, Ignatius taped a sheet of Big Chief paper on which he had printed in crayon: TWELVE INCHES (12) OF PARADISE. So far no one had responded to its message. #Quote by John Kennedy Toole

#104. Until that afternoon in October four years ago, I hadn't known dogs could scream. #Quote by Stephen King
Dogs quotes by Margaret Guenther
#105. It was a happy day when I discovered that in the English of Chaucer's day - which was also the time of the Black Death - the word "silly" meant "blessed." I am not sure when we strayed away from its original meaning, when blessedness took on a churchy aura and silliness became the realm of Monty Python and fourth-grade eschatological humor. As hard-working adults we too often lose the gift for letting go, for delight in simply being. We persuade ourselves that every moment must be lived productively; like the busy little bee, we feel a holy obligation to improve each shining hour. We would do well to take very small children or big silly dogs as our teachers. I have learned much about holy uselessness form Perry, the dog... #Quote by Margaret Guenther
Dogs quotes by Jason Graae
#106. I come in as an actor, having read through the script a few times, made a couple of character-choices, thinking I'm going to be working on it during rehearsals. It's very different. It takes a while we're always like dogs sniffing each other's asses. #Quote by Jason Graae
Dogs quotes by Peter Watts
#107. You know what happens when you keep a dog locked away from every living thing, except you visit once a day and kick the shit out of him?"
Perreault laughed nervously. "Someone actually tried that?"
"What happens is, the dog's a social animal, and it gets so lonely it actually looks forward to the shit-kicking. It asks to be kicked. It begs. #Quote by Peter Watts
Dogs quotes by Ted Tally
#108. Playing the game means treating your dogs like gentlemen, and your gentlemen like dogs. #Quote by Ted Tally
Dogs quotes by Max Beerbohm
#109. You will find that the woman who is really kind to dogs is always one who has failed to inspire sympathy in men. For the attractive woman, dogs are mere dumb and restless brutes - possibly dangerous, certainly soulless. Yet will coquetry teach her to caress any dog in the presence of a man enslaved by her. #Quote by Max Beerbohm
Dogs quotes by Thomas Hardy
#110. Ah, are you digging on my grave,
My loved one? -- planting rue?"
-- "No: yesterday he went to wed
One of the brightest wealth has bred.
'It cannot hurt her now,' he said,
'That I should not be true.'"

"Then who is digging on my grave,
My nearest dearest kin?"
-- "Ah, no: they sit and think, 'What use!
What good will planting flowers produce?
No tendance of her mound can loose
Her spirit from Death's gin.'"

"But someone digs upon my grave?
My enemy? -- prodding sly?"
-- "Nay: when she heard you had passed the Gate
That shuts on all flesh soon or late,
She thought you no more worth her hate,
And cares not where you lie.

"Then, who is digging on my grave?
Say -- since I have not guessed!"
-- "O it is I, my mistress dear,
Your little dog, who still lives near,
And much I hope my movements here
Have not disturbed your rest?"

"Ah yes! You dig upon my grave...
Why flashed it not to me
That one true heart was left behind!
What feeling do we ever find
To equal among human kind
A dog's fidelity!"

"Mistress, I dug upon your grave
To bury a bone, in case
I should be hungry near this spot
When passing on my daily trot.
I am sorry, but I quite forgot
It was your resting place. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Dogs quotes by J.K. Rowling

Dogs quotes by Bradley Cooper
#112. I have two beautiful dogs that I cherish. #Quote by Bradley Cooper
Dogs quotes by Dodie Smith
#113. NOT long ago, there lived in London a young married couple of Dalmatian dogs named Pongo and Missis Pongo. (Missis had added Pongo's name to her own on their marriage, but was still called Missis by most people.) They were lucky enough to own a young married couple of humans named Mr. and Mrs. Dearly, who were gentle, obedient, and unusually intelligent - almost canine at times. They understood quite a number of barks: the barks for "Out, please!" "In, please!" "Hurry up with my dinner!" and "What about a walk?" And even when they could not understand, they could often guess - if looked at soulfully or scratched by an eager paw. Like many other much-loved humans, they believed that they owned their dogs, instead of realizing that their dogs owned them. Pongo and Missis found this touching and amusing and let their pets think it was true. #Quote by Dodie Smith
Dogs quotes by Dean Koontz
#114. Like children, dogs want discipline and are most secure when they have rules to live by. The happiest dogs are those with gentle masters who quietly but firmly demand respect. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Dogs quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#115. why moral and political arguments are so frustrating: because moral reasons are the tail wagged by the intuitive dog. A dog's tail wags to communicate. You can't make a dog happy by forcibly wagging its tail. And you can't change people's minds by utterly refuting their arguments. Hume diagnosed the problem long ago: And as reasoning is not the source, whence either disputant derives his tenets; it is in vain to expect, that any logic, which speaks not to the affections, will ever engage him to embrace sounder principles.49 #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Dogs quotes by Jo-Ann Costa
#116. The barking hounds ran in and out of the creek, making slapping waves, turning the Georgia earth to mud under the longleaf pines. With the dogs at play, they were, for a lovely short time, naive boys on a glorious summer's day, lost in clamorous youth. #Quote by Jo-Ann Costa

Dogs quotes by Ashly Lorenzana
#119. People leave imprints on our lives, shaping who we become in much the same way that a symbol is pressed into the page of a book to tell you who it comes from. Dogs, however, leave paw prints on our lives and our souls, which are as unique as fingerprints in every way. #Quote by Ashly Lorenzana
Dogs quotes by W. Bruce Cameron
#120. It cannot be a dog's purpose to understand what people want because it is impossible. #Quote by W. Bruce Cameron
Dogs quotes by H.P. Lovecraft
#121. Contrary to what you may assume, I am not a pessimist but an indifferentist- that is, I don't make the mistake of thinking that the ... cosmos ... gives a damn one way or the other about the especial wants and ultimate welfare of mosquitoes, rats, lice, dogs, men, horses, pterodactyls, trees, fungi, dodos, or other forms of biological energy. #Quote by H.P. Lovecraft

Dogs quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#125. She is sad. She does not speak Japanese. Her husband went to the desert months and months ago. Every day she goes to the market and brings back chocolate, a peach, and a salmon rice-ball for her dinner. She sits and eats and stares at the wall. Sometimes she watches television. Sometimes she walks three miles to Blue Street to look at necklaces in the window that she wishes someone would buy for her. Sometimes she walks along the pier to see the sunken bicycles, pinged into ruin by invisible arrows of battleship-sonar, crusted over with rust and coral. She likes to pet people's dogs as they walk them. That is her whole life. What should she dream of?"
"Something better. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Dogs quotes by Malcolm Lowry
#126. The howling pariah dogs, the cocks that herald dawn all night, the drumming, the moaning that will be found later white plumage huddled on telegraph wires in back gardens or fowl roosting in apple trees, the eternal sorrow that never sleeps of great Mexico. #Quote by Malcolm Lowry
Dogs quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#127. This past Thanksgiving, my father was at the farm, and I had all 11 dogs in the house with a father who never allowed dogs in the house. And he got up to leave the table and came back and Solomon was in his chair. And he says, "This dog is in my chair." And I said, "It's the other way around, you're sitting in his chair." #Quote by Oprah Winfrey

Dogs quotes by Quentin Tarantino
#130. Truth be told, actually, my favorite director of the Movie Brats was not Scorsese. Loved him. But my favorite director of the Movie Brats was Brian de Palma. I actually met De Palma right after I'd done 'Reservoir Dogs,' and I was very beside myself. #Quote by Quentin Tarantino

Dogs quotes by Elizabeth Von Arnim
#132. She did not like her name. It was a mean, small name, with a kind of facetious twist, she thought, about its end like the upward curve of a pug dog's tail. #Quote by Elizabeth Von Arnim

#133. I consider myself the queen of pugs of New York City. I'm really into my dogs. Massive pugs, massive needlepoint, massive color! #Quote by Brigid Berlin
Dogs quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#134. We have two dogs, Mabel and Wolf, and three cats at home, Charlie, George and Chairman. We have two cats on our farm, Tom and Little Sister, two horses, and two mini horses, Hannah and Tricky. We also have two cows, Holy and Madonna. And those are only the animals we let sleep in our bed. #Quote by Ellen DeGeneres
Dogs quotes by Li Bai
#135. A dog's bark amid the water's sound,
Peach blossom that's made thicker by the rain.
Deep in the trees, I sometimes see a deer,
And at the stream I hear no noonday bell.

Wild bamboo divides the green mist,
A flying spring hangs from the jasper peak.
No-one knows the place to which he's gone,
Sadly, I lean on two or three pines #Quote by Li Bai

Dogs quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#138. To think, for instance, that I have never been aware before how many faces there are. There are quantities of human beings, but there are many more faces, for each person has several. There are people who wear the same face for years; naturally it wears out, it gets dirty, it splits at the folds, it stretches, like gloves one has worn on a journey. These are thrifty, simple people; they do not change their face, they never even have it cleaned. It is good enough, they say, and who can prove to them the contrary? The question of course arises, since they have several faces, what do they do with the others? Thhey store them up. Their children will wear them. But sometimes, too, it happens that their dogs go out with them on. And why not? A face is a face. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Dogs quotes by David Lindorff
#139. A square space with complicated ceremonies going on in it, the purpose of which is to transform animals into men. Two snakes, moving in opposite directions, have to be got rid of at once. Some animals are there, e.g. foxes and dogs. The people walk around the square and must let themselves be bitten by these animals in each of the four corners . If they run away all is lost. Now the higher animals come on to the scene-bulls and ibexes. Four snakes glide into the four corners. Then the congregation flies out. Two sacrificial priests carry in a huge reptile and with this they touch the forehead of a shapeless animal lump or life-mass. Out of it there instantly rises a human head, transfigured. A voice proclaims: "These are attempts at being. #Quote by David Lindorff

Dogs quotes by Lisa Cook

Dogs quotes by Ottessa Moshfegh
#143. I didn't like dogs. Not because they scared me - they didn't - but because their deaths were so much harder to take than people's. #Quote by Ottessa Moshfegh
Dogs quotes by Otto Von Bismarck
#144. Our German forefathers had a very kind religion. They believed that, after death, they would meet again all the good dogs that had been their companions in life. I wish I could believe that too. #Quote by Otto Von Bismarck
Dogs quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#145. A dog reflects the family life. Whoever saw a frisky dog in a gloomy family, or a sad dog in a happy one? Snarling people have snarling dogs, dangerous people have dangerous ones. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle

Dogs quotes by Greg King
#147. Many in America, as one social historian wrote, 'believed implicitly that New York's social leaders went to bed in full evening dress, brushed their teeth in vintage champagne, married their daughters without exception to shady French counts, and arrayed their poodle dogs in diamond tiaras.' ... #Quote by Greg King

Dogs quotes by Christopher Fowler
#149. My bedroom was filled with reading material: books salvaged from dustbins, books borrowed from friends, books with missing pages, books found in the street, abandoned, unreadable, torn, scribbled on, unloved, unwanted and dismissed. My bedroom was the Battersea Dogs' Home of books. #Quote by Christopher Fowler
Dogs quotes by Sigrid Nunez

Dogs quotes by Mango Wodzak
#151. If factory farming for meat of cats, dogs, squirrels, swans and guinea pigs began in western Europe, you can be sure some of the bacon and sausage gorging public would be out protesting. Although other cultures regularly eat some or all of these animals, everybody draws the line somewhere. Most would balk at the idea of eating dolphin, gorilla, orangutan or human flesh, but really the differences between the species are minimal and whether we are a rabbit, horse, chimpanzee or human, we all have an innate desire to live our lives freely and avoid violation. #Quote by Mango Wodzak
Dogs quotes by Donald L. Hicks
#152. We may have pets, but when it comes to unconditional love, they are the masters. #Quote by Donald L. Hicks
Dogs quotes by Rudyard Kipling
#153. There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and woman to fill our day;
But when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers & Sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear. #Quote by Rudyard Kipling
Dogs quotes by Bear Bryant
#154. If you want to coach you have three rules to follow to win. One, surround yourself with people who can't live without football. I've had a lot of them. Two, be able to recognize winners. They come in all forms. And, three, have a plan for everything. A plan for practice, a plan for the game. A plan for being ahead, and a plan for being behind 20-0 at half, with your quarterback hurt and the phones dead, with it raining cats and dogs and no rain gear because the equipment man left it at home. #Quote by Bear Bryant
Dogs quotes by Bono
#155. The strangest thing has happened. I really missed my dog. That's never happened to me before. You know, on a long tour you do hear people saying they miss their pets. I never have. But last night I started really missing my dog.
It's very odd, 'cause I don't have a dog. #Quote by Bono
Dogs quotes by Jacqueline Woodson
#156. At night, every living thing competes for a chance to be heard. The crickets and frogs call out. Sometimes, there's the soft who-whoo of an owl lost amid the pines. Even the dogs won't rest until they've howled at the moon. But the crickets always win, long after the frogs stop croaking and the owl has found its way home. Long after the dogs have lain down losing the battle against sleep, the crickets keep going as though they know their song is our lullaby. #Quote by Jacqueline Woodson
Dogs quotes by William McNamara
#157. I was an only child. Growing up, we moved a lot, so I didn't have any close friends. So the animals I was around as a child - dogs, cats, and horses, and stuffed animals - became my family and friends. The only strong bonds I made as a child were with animals. #Quote by William McNamara
Dogs quotes by Erik Larson
#158. In Germany, Dodd had noticed, no one ever abused a dog, and as a consequence dogs were never fearful around men and were always plump and obviously well tended. "Only horses seem to be equally happy, never children or the youth," he wrote ... He called it "horse happiness" and had noticed the same phenomenon in Nuremburg and Dresden. In part, he knew this happiness was fostered by German law, which forbade cruelty to animals and punished violators with prison.
"At a time when hundreds of men have been put to death without trial or any sort of evidence of guilt, and when the population literally trembles with fear, animals have rights guaranteed them which men and women cannot think of expecting."
He added, "One might easily wish he were a horse! #Quote by Erik Larson

#160. I love dogs, but dogs, you have to be in the country with dogs. I cannot walk a dog on the street. #Quote by Karl Lagerfeld
Dogs quotes by Alexis De Tocqueville
#161. The Americans of the United States do not let their dogs hunt the Indians as do the Spaniards in Mexico, but at bottom it is the same pitiless feeling which here, as everywhere else, animates the European race. This world here belongs to us, they tell themselves every day: the Indian race is destined for final destruction which one cannot prevent and which it is not desirable to delay. Heaven has not made them to become civilized; it is necessary that they die. Besides I do not want to get mixed up in it. I will not do anything against them: I will limit myself to providing everything that will hasten their ruin. In time I will have their lands and will be innocent of their death.
Satisfied with his reasoning, the American goes to church where he hears the minister of the gospel repeat every day that all men are brothers, and that the Eternal Being who has made them all in like image, has given them all the duty to help one another. #Quote by Alexis De Tocqueville
Dogs quotes by Jeanne DuPrau

Dogs quotes by Mahatma Gandhi

Dogs quotes by Neil Gaiman
#168. Is the chemical aftertaste the reason why people eat hot dogs, or is it some kind of bonus? #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Dogs quotes by Garth Stein
#169. In Mongolia, when a dog dies, he is buried high in the hills so people cannot walk on his grave. The dog's master whispers in the dog's ear his wishes that the dog will return as a man in his next life. Then his tail is cut off and put beneath his head, and a piece of meat of fat is cut off and placed in his mouth to sustain his soul for its journey; before he is reincarnated, the dog's soul is freed to travel the land, to run across the high desert plains for as long as it would like.
I learned that from a program on the National Geographic Channel, so I believe it is true. Not all dogs return as men, they say; only those who are ready.
I am ready. #Quote by Garth Stein
Dogs quotes by Charles M. Schulz
#170. All his life he tried to be a good person. Many times, however, he failed.

Dogs quotes by Linda Tirado
#172. Your dogs do not belong in restaurants even if they are supercute. I swear to God, the number of tiny dogs I've seen in inappropriate places is at least ten times higher than the number of times I've gotten laid in my life. And, newsflash: Only service animals are allowed in restaurants. That's actually a public health concern. I don't get why you're allowed to decide you're completely above the law simply because you found a purse to fit your dog into. 3. #Quote by Linda Tirado
Dogs quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#173. There are seventy-five perfumes, which it is very necessary that a criminal expert should be able to distinguish from each other, and cases have more than once within my own experience depended upon their prompt recognition. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Dogs quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#174. Some streets are dangerous as frothing dogs, where no amount of care will keep you safe. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Dogs quotes by Jean Anouilh
#175. You disgust me, all of you, with your happiness! With your life that must be loved at all costs. [ ... ] I spit on your idea of life! [ ... ] You are all like dogs that lick everything they smell! [ ... ] I do not want to understand. I am here for something other than understanding. I am here to tell you no, and to die. To tell you no and to die. #Quote by Jean Anouilh
Dogs quotes by Rosemary Clement-Moore
#176. I could hear my dogs barking. Worse I could hear bleating. Joyful goat chuckles of freedom.
"The goats!" I clutched my head, an absurdly melodramatic reaction suited to this farce. "The goats were in the tree!"
"The ... Wait, what? #Quote by Rosemary Clement-Moore
Dogs quotes by Charles De Gaulle
#177. The more I get to know men, the more I love dogs. #Quote by Charles De Gaulle
Dogs quotes by Edward Tenner
#178. If we define technology as a modification of the environment, then we must recognize the complementary principle of technique: how that modification is used in performance. New objects change behavior, but not always as inventors and manufacturers imagine. And changes in behavior of people, as of bears and dogs, inspire new hardware, which in turn engenders more innovations.4 #Quote by Edward Tenner
Dogs quotes by Darynda Jones
#179. They were back. The demons in all their glory. And they had a plan. I made plans sometimes, too, but they rarely involved world domination. Hot dogs on a grill, maybe. Tequila. #Quote by Darynda Jones
Dogs quotes by Barbara Walters
#180. Motherhood is tough. If you just want a wonderful little creature to love, you can get a puppy. #Quote by Barbara Walters
Dogs quotes by Laura Dern
#181. I love to rescue animals ... The pounds were so crowded they were putting animals down almost immediately. Seven thousand dogs were put to sleep. #Quote by Laura Dern
Dogs quotes by Karl Kraus
#182. To be sure, the dog is loyal. But why, on that account, should we take him as an example? He is loyal to man, not to other dogs. #Quote by Karl Kraus
Dogs quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#183. Some of my Arcanum bunkmates taught me a card game called dogs-breath. I returned the favor by giving an impromptu lesson in psychology, probability, and manual dexterity. I won almost two whole talents before they stopped inviting me back to their games. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Dogs quotes by Randy Alcorn
#184. When Paul was taken in chains from his filthy Roman dungeon and beheaded at the order of the opulent madman Nero, two representatives of humanity faced off, one of the best and one of the worst. One lived for prosperity on earth, the other didn't. One now lives in prosperity in heaven, the other doesn't. We remember both men for what they truly were, which is why we name our sons Paul and our dogs Nero. #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Dogs quotes by Jen Sincero
#185. You're here. I'm here. I love you. I'm gonna pee all over the floor about it. #Quote by Jen Sincero
Dogs quotes by Jim O'Heir
#186. One of my obsession is animals. I'm into dog rescues. It drives me crazy when people go to pet stores and buy dogs. There are so many dogs that need a good home. And this sounds crazy, but I really believe they know what is happening and are appreciative, and I just think they make for the best pets. #Quote by Jim O'Heir
Dogs quotes by Jon Hamm
#187. I've been surrounded by dogs my whole life. I got a golden retriever a year after I was born. #Quote by Jon Hamm
Dogs quotes by David Graeber
#188. Freuchen tells how one day, after coming home hungry from an unsuccessful walrus-hunting expedition, he found one of the successful hunters dropping off several hundred pounds of meat. He thanked him profusely. The man objected indignantly:
"Up in our country we are human!" said the hunter. "And since we are human we help each other. We don't like to hear anybody say thanks for that. What I get today you may get tomorrow. Up here we say that by gifts one makes slaves and by whips one makes dogs.
... The refusal to calculate credits and debits can be found throughout the anthropological literature on egalitarian hunting societies. Rather than seeing himself as human because he could make economic calculations, the hunter insisted that being truly human meant refusing to make such calculations, refusing to measure or remember who had given what to whom, for the precise reason that doing so would inevitably create a world where we began "comparing power with power, measuring, calculating" and reducing each other to slaves or dogs through debt. It's not that he, like untold millions of similar egalitarian spirits throughout history, was unaware that humans have a propensity to calculate. If he wasn't aware of it, he could not have said what he did. Of course we have a propensity to calculate. We have all sorts of propensities. In any real-life situation, we have propensities that drive us in several different contradictory directions simultaneously. No one is more real #Quote by David Graeber
Dogs quotes by Cesar Millan
#189. I believe it's our loss of connection with our instinctual side that prevents us from being effective pack leaders for our dogs. Perhaps it's also why we also seem to be failing at being positive guardians of our planet. #Quote by Cesar Millan
Dogs quotes by George Orwell
#190. When the first shock had worn off and when in spite of everything - in spite of their terror of the dogs, and of the habit, developed through long years, of never complaining, never criticising, no matter what happened - they might have uttered some word of protest. #Quote by George Orwell
Dogs quotes by Richard Dean Anderson
#191. Dogs are my favorite people. #Quote by Richard Dean Anderson
Dogs quotes by Mireya Mayor
#192. Dubbed the pink panthers of Madagascar, the fossas are killing machines, eating pretty much anything that moves with powerful jaws filled with canines as big as any guard dog's and long, retractable claws on both front and hind feet...What get most scientists' attention is the fossa's penis. An adult fossa is about 3.5 feet long and has a penis of about 7 inches, a sixth of its body length. If a man had the same ratio, he would be 3 feet tall and very smug. #Quote by Mireya Mayor
Dogs quotes by Waylon Jennings
#193. Ladies love outlaws, like babies love stray dogs. Ladies touch babies like a banker touches gold, outlaws touch ladies somewhere deep down in their soul. #Quote by Waylon Jennings
Dogs quotes by Angela Carter
#194. It was a sensitive and musical dog. #Quote by Angela Carter
Dogs quotes by Louise Penny
#195. But he realized Henri already knew all he'd ever need. He knew he was loved and he knew how to love. #Quote by Louise Penny
Dogs quotes by Peter Weiss
#196. We're all free and equal to die like dogs #Quote by Peter Weiss
Dogs quotes by Ryu Murakami
#197. This was a factory, a sorting house. We were no different from dogs and pigs and cows: all of us were allowed to play when we were small, but then, just before reaching maturity, we were sorted and classified. Being a high school student was the first step toward becoming a domestic animal. #Quote by Ryu Murakami
Dogs quotes by Cesar Millan
#198. Everybody wants a solution on how to help their dogs, but we can't really see the problem until we reconnect ourselves to our instinctual self. #Quote by Cesar Millan
Dogs quotes by Kat Rosenfield
#199. In a small town, unexplained tragedy can only go so long before it grows teeth, sprouts sharp claws, and turns, snarling, on its own self. Before fragments of gossip become rumors, and the rumors become suspicions. Before neighbors start eyeing each other with the mistrustful narrowness of oft-kicked dogs. Inside the safe shelter of their homes, husbands and wives draw the blinds tight and turn to each other, worrying at small bits of information and wondering who, who among their shrinking circle of trusted friends, might still know something he isn't telling. #Quote by Kat Rosenfield
Dogs quotes by Robert Harris
#200. Gratitude", he said, quoting Stalin, "is a dog's disease. #Quote by Robert Harris
