Konrad Lorenz
“Barking dogs occasionally bite, but laughing men hardly ever shoot.”
Konrad Lorenz

Jack London
“They alone moved through the vast inertness. They alone were alive, and they sought for other things that were alive in order that they might devour them and continue to live.”
Jack London, White Fang

Kurt Vonnegut
“…he closed the venetian blinds and then the drapes, and he lay down on the outside of the coverlet. But sleep would not come. Tears came instead. They seeped. Billy turned on the Magic Fingers, and he was jiggled as he wept.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Kurt Vonnegut
“No art is possible without a dance with death, he wrote.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

E. Nesbit
“Daddy dear, I'm only four
And I'd rather not be more.
Four's the nicest age to be,
Two and two and one and three.
What I love is two and two,
Mother, Peter, Phil, and you.
What you love is one and three,
Mother, Peter, Phil, and me.
Give your little girl a kiss
Because she learned and told you this.”
E. Nesbit, The Railway Children
