|"Doggies love people!"|
It's been a while since I've posted any celebrity quotes for you, and today's theme is one near and dear to my heart: people.
After all, they are a dog's best friend.
So let's get right to it and as usual, my comments are in italics afterwards.
"People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do."
Isaac Asimov (1920-1992) Famous writer of science fiction and science fact.
I'll be the first to admit that they can be quite trying at times, but I'm still my sweet humble self.
|Beerbohm, circa 1901|
"People who insist on telling their dreams are among the terrors of the breakfast table."
Sir Max Beerbohm (1872-1956) Essayist and caricaturist
I know exactly what you mean sir. The last thing my family wants to hear is me barking about my worst recurring nightmare: burying a big juicy bone and then forgetting where I hid it.
"You want people walking away from the conversation with some kernel of wisdom or some kind of impact."
Actor Harry Dean Stanton (1926-)
That's true. After all, Benjamin Franklin is accredited as saying "'Tis better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt."
"The great secret that all old people share is that your body changes, but you
don't change at all."
Doris Lessing (1919-2013) Novelist and poet.
So true. For me, it's the timeless magic of literature and Internet avatars.
Well, on that note, it's time for me to close this post.
Have a great week everybody and please be back here again next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!—AtP.
