Famous quotes containing the words cats and/or male:

    At noon, you walk across a river. It is dry, with not this much water: it is just stones and pebbles. But it rains cats and dogs in the mountains, and towards afternoon, the water descends wildly and she ravages all in its path, the madwoman. That is how death comes.

    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
