A fence should be horse high, hog tight and bull strong.

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.
The dog is the god of frolic.
At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst.
It is not I who become addicted, it is my body.
It is not heroin or cocaine that makes one an addict, it is the need to escape from a harsh reality. There are more television addicts, more baseball and football addicts, more movie addicts, and certainly more alcohol addicts in this country than there are narcotics addicts.
Happiness can exist only in acceptance.
Accept everything about yourself -- I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end -- no apologies, no regrets.
The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for.
Man is the only animal that can remain on friendly terms with the victims he intends to eat until he eats them.
Mankind differs from the animals only by a little and most people throw that away.
Animals are such agreeable friends, they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.
The better I know men the more I admire dogs.
Those who wish to pet and baby wild animals, love them. But those who respect their natures and wish to let them live normal lives, love them more.
What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected.
Man is a clever animal who behaves like an imbecile.
Animals are considered as property only. To destroy or to abuse them, from malice to the proprietor, or with an intention injurious to his interest in them, is criminal. But the animals themselves are without protection. The law regards them not substantively. They have no RIGHTS!
Be a good animal, true to your animal instincts.
Don't accept your dog's admiration as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful.
Be as a bird perched on a frail branch that she feels bending beneath her, still she sings away all the same, knowing she has wings.
People who treat other people as less than human must not be surprised when the bread they have cast on the waters comes floating back to them, poisoned.
It's not a slam at you when people are rude -- it's a slam at the people they've met before.
Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.
A woman's life is a history of the affections.
Talk not of wasted affection; affection never was wasted.
Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some have unwittingly entertained angels. [Hebrews 13:2]
Anxiety is the poison of human life; the parent of many sins and of more miseries. In a world where everything is doubtful, and where we may be disappointed, and be blessed in disappointment, why this restless stir and commotion of mind? Can it alter the cause, or unravel the mystery of human events?
Anxiety is the hand maiden of creativity
Anxiety is the dizziness of freedom.
In a few generations more, there will probably be no room at all allowed for animals on the earth: no need of them, no toleration of them. An immense agony will have then ceased, but with it there will also have passed away the last smile of the world's youth.
Love is full of anxious fears.
The misfortunes hardest to bear are these which never came.
Borrow trouble for yourself, if that's your nature, but don't lend it to your neighbors.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.
The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved, loved for ourselves, or rather loved in spite of ourselves.
Happiness comes more from loving than being loved; and often when our affection seems wounded it is only our vanity bleeding. To love, and to be hurt often, and to love again -- this is the brave and happy life.
I love power. But it is as an artist that I love it. I love it as a musician loves his violin, to draw out its sounds and chords and harmonies.
That is the true season of love; when we believe that we alone can love, that no one could ever have loved as much before, and that no one will ever love in the same way again.
Love seeks no cause beyond itself and no fruit; it is its own fruit, its own enjoyment. I love because I love; I love in order that I may love.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Love is not love until love's vulnerable.
Love possesses not nor will it be possessed, for love is sufficient unto love.
Nuptial love makes mankind; friendly love perfects it; but wanton love corrupts and debases it.
Loving can cost a lot but not loving always costs more, and those who fear to love often find that want of love is an emptiness that robs the joy from life.
