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.

Jerome Klapka Jerome (1859 - 1927)
