John Grogan
“Then I dropped my forehead against his and sat there for a long time, as if I could telegraph a message through our two skulls, from my brain to his. I wanted to make him understand some things.

You know all that stuff we’ve always said about you?” I whispered. “What a total pain you are? Don’t believe it. Don’t believe it for a minute, Marley.” He needed to know that, and something more, too. There was something I had never told him, that no one ever had. I wanted him to hear it before he went.

Marley,” I said. “You are a great dog.”
John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog

John Grogan
“Dogs are great. Bad dogs, if you can really call them that, are perhaps the greatest of them all.”
John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog

John Grogan
“I had never thought of Marley as any kind of model, but sitting there sipping my beer, I was aware that maybe he held the secret for a good life. Never slow down, never look back, live each day w/ adolescent verve and spunk and curiosity and playfulness.”
John Grogan, Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog

Benjamin Disraeli
“I feel a very unusual sensation - if it is not indigestion, I think it must be gratitude.”
Benjamin Disraeli

Dodie Smith
“I only want to write. And there's no college for that except life.”
Dodie Smith, I Capture the Castle
