Good quotes (on dogs)

I found these set of quotes on dogs. Some of them might be a little senti, but they make a lot of sense (especially to the ones who have had dogs). Thought I will post them here:

1. Money will buy a pretty good dog but it won’t buy the wag of his tail. – Josh Billings

2. Heaven goes by favour. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in. – Mark Twain

3. The greatest pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself, too. – Samuel Butler

4. Dogs have more love than integrity. They’ve been true to us, yes, but they haven’t been true to themselves. – Clarence Day

5. A dog is the only thing on earth that will love you more than you love yourself. – Josh Billings

6. Animals are such agreeable friends–they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms. – George Eliot

7. A dog’s best friend is his illiteracy. – Ogden Nash

8. If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man. – Mark Twain

9. What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight, what counts is the size of the fight in the dog. – Mark Twain

10. The reason dogs have so many friends is because they wag their tails instead of their tongues. – Unknown

11. There is no faith which has never yet been broken, except that of a truly faithful dog. – Konrad Z. Lorenz

12. Our dogs will love and admire the meanest of us, and feed our colossal vanity with their uncritical homage. – Agnes Repplier

13. “The greater love is a mother’s; then comes a dog’s; then a sweetheart’s.” – Polish Proverb
