Love Brutes

Famous quotes containing the words love and/or brutes:

    I was once in love with books. Now they go their way and I go mine.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    I often accuse my finest acquaintances of an immense frivolity; for, while there are manners and compliments we do not meet, we do not teach one another the lessons of honesty and sincerity that the brutes do, or of steadiness and solidity that the rocks do. The fault is commonly mutual; however, for we do not habitually demand any more of each other.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
