A Quote by William Safire on cats and language

Dangling punch lines to forgotten stories remain in the language like the smile of the Cheshire cat.

A Quote by William John Bennett on business, cats, and happiness

Happiness is like a cat, If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you; it will never come. But if you pay not attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing against your legs and jumping into your lap.

William John Bennett (1943 -)

A Quote by unknown on cats, day, good, justice, men, and present

Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it, don't wait for it, just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a cat-nap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot, black coffee.

A dog thinks: Hey, these people I live with feed me, love me, provide me with a nice warm, dry house, pet me, and take good care of me. . . . They must be Gods! A cat thinks: Hey, these people I live with feed me, love me, provide me with a nice warm, dry house, pet me, and take good care of me. . . . I must be a God!

A Quote by unknown on cats, danger, food, mortality, time, wisdom, and wit

Once upon a time a cat who prided herself on her wit and wisdom was prowling about the barn in search of food and saw a tail protruding from a hole. "There is the conclusion of a rat," she said. Then she crept stealthily toward it until within striking distance, when she made a jump and reached it with her claws. Alas! it was not the appendage of a rat, but the tail of a snake, who immediately turned and gave her a mortal bite. And if such a story has a moral, it surely must be that it is indeed dangerous to jump at conclusions.

A Quote by Tony Mitton on cats and gold

in

Drenching the pavement, warming the wall, bathing the cat in a slumbering sprawl . . . Waking the buds that break from the tree. Shaking out gold, and all for free.
