"The disposition of noble dogs is to be
gentle with people they know and the
opposite with those they don't
know...How, then, can the dog be
anything other than a lover of learning
since it defines what's its own and
what's alien."
- Plato

"Dogs are our link to paradise. They
don't know evil or jealousy or
discontent. To sit with a dog on a
hillside on a glorious
afternoon is to be back in Eden,
where doing nothing was not boring --
it was peace"
~Milan Kundera

The one absolutely unselfish friend that
man can have in this selfish world, the
one that never deserts him, the one
that never proves ungrateful or
treacherous, is his dog.”

You ask of my companions.  Hills, sir,
and the sundown, and a dog as large
as myself that my father bought me.  
They are better than human beings,
because they know but do not tell.

"Take this trouble for me: Make sure
my shepherd dog remains a working
dog, for I have struggled all my life
long for that aim.''
