The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.        -Anonymous

The average dog is a nicer person than the average person. -Andy Rooney

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

"Animals are my friends, and I don't eat my friends"
~George Bernard Shaw

The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men."
~ Leonardo Da Vinci

Our grandchildren will ask us one day: Where were you during the Holocaust of the animals? What did you do against these horrifying crimes? We won't be able to offer the same excuse for the second time, that we didn't know.. -Dr. Helmut Kaplan

I heard Howard Baker say it but I'm not sure whose it is.

"If we, as a global audience, focus solely on violence and militarism, we reinforce the notion that they are the most effective form of action. On the other hand, if we pay more attention to nonviolent or unarmed efforts, we strengthen the legitimacy and influence of those choosing to use these means." .....Julia Bacha executive director Just Vision

Love without hope, as when the young bird-catcher
Swept off his tall hat to the Squire's own daughter
So let the imprisoned Larks escape and fly
Singing about her head, as she rode by.

"Was it Al Capone who said "An honest Politician is one who stays bought" ? "

According to "Quotations with an Attitude. A Wickedly funny source book" by Roy L. Stewart, that was said by one Simon Cameron [1799-1889].

' I have "distrust all those in whom the urge to punish is strong" as being by Goethe.'

According to Bartlett's Familiar Quotations, 14th ed., it's Nietzsche, from Thus Spake Zarathustra, part 2 ch.29.

It is there in those words in my copy of Zarathustra, translated by Thomas Common.

Live like there's no tomorrow,
Love like you've never been hurt,
Dance like nobody's watching,
and fuck like you're being filmed.

(A mate of mine in Dublin.)

I actually like the words of Andy Capp, a cartoon strip in The Daily Mirror years ago, created by Reg Smythe, who said, amongst other gems "One half of the world is trying to have fun and the other half are trying to stop them."

http://forum.quoteland.com/eve/forums?q=Y&a=tpc&s=586192041&f=785191641&m=8361979722
I contacted Mr. Purkey asking him (here is the beginning of my message to him):
Are you the author of a quote that goes something like:
"Dance like no one is watching,
Work like you don't need the money..."

and this is his reply:

Dear John,

Thanks for your note regarding the quote. It is
obvious that the theme has worked its way through many minds.
I certainly want to give credit to those who have tinkered with this beautiful concept.
My version follows. I am sure that most of the words are mine.
"You've gotta' dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt.
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth."
(And speak from the heart to be heard.)
Hope this helps.
Best wishes,

William W. Purkey

From Kathy Mattea:

You've got to sing like you don't need the money,
Love like you'll never get hurt,
You've got to dance like nobody's watching,
It's gotta come from the heart, if you want it to work.
