Cats

Famous quotes containing the word cats:

    You all talk like somebody else made these laws and Pharaoh don’t know nothing about ‘em. He makes ‘em his own self and he’s glad when we come tell him they hurt. why, that’s a whole lot of pleasure to him, to be making up laws all the time and to have a crowd like us around handy to pass all his mean ones on. Why, that’s a whole everything under the sun! Next thing you know he’ll be saying cats can’t have kittens.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    Now I know that much of parenthood is watching and waiting for the chick to fall into harm’s way, watching and waiting for the cats and the cold nights. The joyous enterprise has an undercurrent of terror.
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)

    At middle night great cats with silver claws,
    Bodies of shadow and blind eyes like pearls,
    Came up out of the hole, and red-eared hounds
    With long white bodies came out of the air
    Suddenly, and ran at them and harried them.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
