Natalie Goldberg
“As writers we live life twice, like a cow that eats its food once and then regurgitates it to chew and digest it again. We have a second chance at biting into our experience and examining it. ...This is our life and it's not going to last forever. There isn't time to talk about someday writing that short story or poem or novel. Slow down now, touch what is around you, and out of care and compassion for each moment and detail, put pen to paper and begin to write.”
Natalie Goldberg

Ogden Nash
“The cow is of the bovine ilk; one end is moo, the other milk.”
Ogden Nash, Free Wheeling

J.R.R. Tolkien
“They also keep a horned cow
as proud as any queen;
But music turns her head like ale,
And makes her wave her tufted tail
and dance upon the green.
So the cat on his fiddle played hey-diddle-diddle,
a jig that would wake the dead:
He squeaked and sawed and quickened the tune,
While the landlord shook the Man of the Moon:
'It's after three' he said.

They rolled the Man slowly up the hill
and bundled him into the Moon,
While his horses galloped up in rear,
And the cow came capering like a deer,
and a dish ran up with the spoon.

Now quicker the fiddle went deedle-dum-diddle;
the dog began to roar,
The cow and the horses stood on their heads;
The guests all bounded from their beds
and danced upon the floor.

With a ping and a pong the fiddle-strings broke!
the cow jumped over the Moon,
And the little dog laughed to see such fun,
And the Saturday dish went off at a run
with the silver Sunday spoon.

The round Moon rolled behind the hill,
as the Sun raised up her head.
She hardly believed her fiery eyes;
For though it was day, to her surprise
they all went back to bed!”
J.R.R. Tolkien

“But you know, even worrying about haircuts couldn't depress me. Because every time I started sinking low, I'd just remember about football. All this time I'd thought I wanted to be a trainer, when it turned out I wanted to be a player instead. I saw something I wanted to do and I decided to do it. The feeling of freedom this gave me—I can't even describe it. It was my decision. I chose it. I am not a cow.”
Catherine Gilbert Murdock, Dairy Queen

Samuel Beckett
“She dragged me across the floor, stopping from time to time only to kick me. I didn't know our cows too could be so inhuman.”
Samuel Beckett, First Love and Other Novellas

Robert Penn Warren
“Now and then a pair of eyes would burn at us out of the dark ahead. I knew that they were the eyes of a cow–a poor dear stoic old cow with a cud, standing on the highway shoulder, for there wasn't any stock law–but her eyes burned at us out of the dark as though her skull were full of blazing molten metal like blood and we could see inside the skull into that bloody hot brightness in that moment when the reflection was right before we picked up her shape, which is so perfectly formed to be pelted with clods, and knew what she was and knew that inside that unlovely knotty head there wasn't anything but a handful of coldly coagulated gray mess in which something slow happened as we went by. We were something slow happening inside the cold brain of a cow.”
Robert Penn Warren, All the King's Men

Robert Penn Warren
“Close to the road a cow would stand knee-deep in the mist, with horns damp enough to have a pearly shine in the starlight, and it would look at the black blur we were as we went whirling into the blazing corridor of light which we could never quite get into for it would be always splitting the dark just in front of us. The cow would stand there knee-deep in the mist and look at the black blur and the blaze and then, not turning his head, at the place where the black blur and blaze had been, with the remote, massive, unvindictive indifference of God-All-Mighty or Fate or me, if I were standing there knee-deep in the mist, and the blur and the blaze whizzed past and withered on off between the fields and the patches of woods.”
Robert Penn Warren, All the King's Men

“Gwynned lies two days westwards; still further south, the weregeld calls. Mayhap with All-Father Woden's favour, my deeds may yet inspire the skalds.”

“Does this dress make my ass look big?" I ask him.
"You look like a fat cow in high heels," he laughs.
Yes, I am married to this idiot.”
Patricia Kunnyburger, Hot

Lisa Kemmerer
“Organic” labels do nothing for a cow who is perpetually impregnated and milked, who loses her calf to the veal industry—or to protect her calf, who is sold at birth to the veal industry to be slaughtered. “Organic” products are designed to optimize human health and reduce environmental degradation. Those who invest in organic products are not making a choice that promotes the well-being of farmed animals.”
Lisa Kemmerer, Speaking Up for Animals: An Anthology of Women's Voices

“The only thing that dairy is supposed to do is turn a 50 pound calf into a 300-pound cow in six months. (If those are your aspirations, knock yourself out!)”

“Both knife and sword will cause the same pain, both cow and dog will feed the same milk”

Katherine Applegate
“We are like a cow and a goat,
wanting to be friends
but wondering if it
can ever be.”
Katherine Applegate, Home of the Brave

J.K. Rowling
“Of course we still want to know you!” Harry said, staring at Hagrid.
”You don’t think anything that Skeeter cow – sorry, Professor,” he added quickly, looking at Dumbledore.
”I have gone temporarily deaf and haven’t any idea what you said, Harry,” said Dumbledore, twiddling his thumbs and staring at the ceiling.”
J K Rowling
