A Quote by Jerome Klapka Jerome on heart, ideas, love, and work

I like work: it fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours. I love to keep it by me: the idea of getting rid of it nearly breaks my heart.

A Quote by Jerome Klapka Jerome on business, dogs, and saints

He is very imprudent, a dog; he never makes it his business to inquire whether you are in the right or the wrong, never asks whether you are rich or poor, silly or wise, sinner or saint. You are his pal. That is enough for him.

A Quote by Jerome Klapka Jerome on cats, danger, dogs, friendship, home, life, love, needs, simplicity, and worth

Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing.
