    This is a weird thought that went through my mind today. It’s not up there with the wonderful thought provoking quotes I enjoy that you all post but may just provoke some brain cells to stir an inkling.
    I was browsing absent mindedly through a real estate book and noticed some rather grand ‘prodigious’ houses. Do you think that the agents have misspelt this word and really meant ‘pretentious’? Or am I the only cynically minded one about this affluent side of our society. Just a thought.

    “Sir, this is a unique dog. He does not live by tooth or fang. He respects the right of cats to be cats although he doesn’t admire them. He turns his steps rather than disturb an earnest caterpillar. His greatest fear is that someone will point out a rabbit and suggest that he chase it. This is a dog of peace and tranquillity.”

     

    “I’ve seen a look in dogs’ eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that dogs think humans are nuts.”

     

    “All war is a symptom of man’s failure as a thinking animal.”

    John Steinbeck
