A Quote by Sidonie Gabrielle Claudine Colette on alcohol, cats, charity, death, influence, nobility, play, pleasure, and violence

A bestial and violent man will go so far as to kill because he is under the influence of drink, exasperated, or driven by rage and alcohol. He is paltry. He does not know the pleasure of killing, the charity of bestowing death like a caress, of linking it with the play of the noble wild beasts: every cat, every tiger, embraces its prey and licks it even while it destroys it.

Sidonie Gabrielle Claudine Colette (1873 - 1954)
