Some Special Thoughts
one absolutely unselfish friend
That a man can have
In this selfish world,
The one that never deserts him,
The one that never proves ungrateful
Or treacherous, is his dog…
He will kiss the hand that has
No food to offer…
When all other friends desert, he remains. George G. Vest: Speech U.S. Senate, 1884
"How you behave toward cats here below determines your
status in Heaven." - Robert A. Heinlein
History is more full of examples of the fidelity of dogs than of friends. Alexander Pope
are many intelligent species in the universe. They are all owned by cats."
