Famous quotes containing the words cats and/or stray:
“Authors like cats because they are such quiet, lovable, wise creatures, and cats like authors for the same reasons.”
—Robertson Davies (b. 1913)
“She makes the willow shiver in the sun
For maidens who were wont to sit and gaze
Upon the grass, relinquished to their feet.
She causes boys to pile new plums and pears
On disregarded plate. The maidens taste
And stray impassioned in the littering leaves.”
—Wallace Stevens (18791955)
