Mark Twain (1835-1910) – American author and humorist
A person that started in to carry a cat home by the tail was gitting knowledge that was always going to be useful to him, and warn’t ever going to grow dim or doubtful.
Of all God’s creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the leash. That one is the cat.
If you shamefully misuse a cat once she will always maintain a dignified reserve toward you afterward. You will never get her full confidence again.
If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat.
One of the most striking differences between a cat and a lie is that a cat only has nine lives.
If animals could speak the dog would be a a blundering outspoken fellow, but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.
A cat is more intelligent than people believe, and can be taught any crime.
