Puppy Love - Wonderful Companions

Famous quotes containing the words companions, wonderful, love and/or puppy:

    Dear fellow-artist, why so free
    With every sort of company,
    With every Jack and Jill?
    Choose your companions from the best;
    Who draws a bucket with the rest
    Soon topples down the hill.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The wonderful workings of the world: wonderful,
    wonderful: I’m surprised half the time:
    Archie Randolph Ammons (b. 1926)

    I love my government not least for the extent to which it leaves me alone.
    John Updike (b. 1932)

    Why does not the kitten betray some of the attributes common to the adult puss? A puppy is but a dog, plus high spirits, and minus common sense. We never hear our friends say they love puppies, but cannot bear dogs. A kitten is a thing apart; and many people who lack the discriminating enthusiasm for cats, who regard these beautiful beasts with aversion and mistrust, are won over easily, and cajoled out of their prejudices, by the deceitful wiles of kittenhood.
    Agnes Repplier (1858–1950)
