Famous quotes containing the words agnes repplier and/or repplier:

    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)

    It has been well said that tea is suggestive of a thousand wants, from which spring the decencies and luxuries of civilization.
    —Agnes Repplier (1858–1950)
