Today’s Prompt is: Your favourite Quote.
My favourite quote:
Yes “The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog.” – Mark Twain
I love this one as it always speaks the truth. You always know where you stand with a dog. A person however is like an onion – many complex layers of psychology. Some you see other deeply hidden beneath the skin. The layer you get today may not be the one you see tomorrow. Thus trusting a person is a difficult thing to do.
Whereas; if a dog shows you love, the dog means it.
Samuel Langhorne Clemens better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American writer, humourist, entrepreneur, publisher, and lecturer. He wrote the classics Tom Sawyer and HuckleBerry Finn among amazing classics. He like myself was a great lover of dogs too. Here are some more wonderful quotes from Mark Twain about dogs.
‘My father was a Saint Bernard, my mother was a Collie, but I am a Presbyterian.’
‘When a man’s dog turns against him it is time for a wife to pack her trunk and go home to mama.’
‘It takes me a long time to lose my temper, but once lost I could not find it with a dog.’
‘If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and a man.’
‘If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.’
I hope you enjoyed my favourite quote and few more from one of the greatest writers who ever lived.
Have a great day!
