(All images from We Heart It)
The difference between friends and pets is that friends we allow into our company, pets we allow into our solitude.
Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.
An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.
Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.
If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth.
~Chief Seattle of the Suquamish Tribe, letter to President Franklin Pierce
Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want.
~Joseph Wood Krutch
