Indian Quote

With the qualities of cleanliness, affection, patience, dignity, and courage that cats have, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of becoming cats? God made the cat in order that man might have the pleasure of caressing the lion.

Are cats lazy? Well, more power to them if they are. Which one of us has not entertained the dream of doing just as he likes, when and how he likes, and as much as he likes?

The cat is magical and the bringer of good luck.

  1. Manataka American Indian Council

    I think I could turn and live with animals,
    they're so placid and self-contained,
    I stand and look at them long and long.
    They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
    They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
    They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
    Not one is dissatisfied,
    not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
    Not one kneels to another,
    nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
    Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.
    ("Song of Myself", Walt Whitman, 1819-1892)

  2. Who among us hasn’t envied a cat’s ability to ignore the cares of daily life and to relax completely?
