37 Animal Quotes from Literature

"We miss so much out of life if we don't love. The more we love the richer life is—even if it is only some little furry or feathery pet. " ~ Rainbow Valley by Lucy Maud Montgomery "You've heard of animals chewing off a leg to escape a trap? There's an animal kind of trick. A human would remain in the trap, endure the pain, feigning death that he might kill the trapper and remove a threat to his kind." ~ Dune by Frank Herbert A bull in a china shop is not a useful animal, nor is he ornamental, but there can be no doubt of his energy. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope An animal may be ferocious and cunning enough, but it takes a real man to tell a lie. ~ The Island of Doctor Moreau by H. G. Wells "Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals. He sets them to work, he gives back to them the bare minimum that will prevent them from starving, and the rest he keeps for himself." ~ Animal Farm by George Orwell "Everything is made out of Magic, leaves and trees, flowers and birds, badgers and foxes and squirrels and people. So it must be all around us. In this garden-in all the places." ~ The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett "I love them," said Dorothy. "They are so nice and selfish. Dogs are too good and unselfish. They make me feel uncomfortable. But cats are gloriously human." ~ Anne of the Island by Lucy Maud Montgomery Let Hercules himself do what he may,
The cat will mew, and dog will have his day. ~ Hamlet, Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare We think cag'd birds sing, when indeed they cry. ~ The White Devil by John Webster All animals, except man, know that the principal business of life is to enjoy it. ~ The Way of All Flesh by Samuel Butler
