Dogs; quotes

 

Here are some quotes about dogs I’ve found and I love!

 

 

“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and man.” 
― Mark Twain

“If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.” 
― Mark Twain

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.” 
― Milan Kundera

“Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.” 
― Mark Twain

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.” 
― Josh Billings

There are many, many others and you can see them here.

But to end this, here’s a beautiful one.

“A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.” 
― John Grogan, Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World’s Worst Dog
