A Quote by Lewis Carroll on direction, journey, cats, misdirection, questions, place, and walking

'Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'
'That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.
'I don't much care where - ' said Alice.
'Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.
' - so long as I get somewhere,' Alice added as an explanation.
'Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, 'if you only walk long enough.'

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898)

Women are like cats and dogs. If you can attract any cat and make any dog listen to you, you can have any women you like.

A Quote by Domus Ulixes on cats, reflection, mirror, and perspectives

It is good to look through different perspectives. However never your exact opposite, this is your reflection in the mirror from who you will never win. As any cat can tell you.

A Quote by Isha De Lubicz on cat, cats, self awareness, and self control

Other animals give us a lesson in self-control:  the cat, for instance, whose wisdom is a model because it combines the most intent passion with the calmest indifference.  Motionless it plans its leap, and performs it exactly; the strength of its muscles is matched by its relaxation in repose; in sleep it has the abandon of an infant, yet its instinct is ever alert; it can fall without danger because it does not resist; hunting and fighting are games of pure pleasure for it, it hunts with rancor and plays without an object; it is ever ready to attack without animosity, and to defend itself without apprehension; being indifferent to victory, it cannot feel defeat.

            Serenity comes from independence.

            This independence, to be created in oneself, is not indifference, but neutrality with regard to the impressions received from without – whether pretty or ugly, good or bad, happy or sad, pleasant or unpleasant.  It is one thing to observe these qualities and quite another to let them affect our moods.

A Quote by Neil Gaiman on neil gaiman, coraline, cats, and rats

The cat dropped the rat between its two front paws.  "There are those," it said with a sigh, in tones as smooth as oiled silk, "who have suggested that the tendency of a cat to play with its prey is a merciful one -- after all, it permits the occasional funny little running snack to escape, from time to time.  How often does your dinner get to escape?"

A Quote by Mark Twain on cats, home, animals, and pets

A home without a cat—and a well-fed, well-petted and properly revered cat—may be a perfect home, perhaps, but how can it prove its title?

A Quote by Mark Twain on animals, pets, cats, evolution, man, humanity, humans, and slavery

Of all God's creatures there is only one that cannot be made the slave of the lash; that one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat.
