Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.
Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions; they pass no criticisms.
Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.
-Alfred A. Montapert
Animals are like little angels sent to earth to teach us how to love. They don't get angry or play silly games. They are always there for us.
