Dogs

[Dogs] are better than human beings because they know but do not tell. - Emily Dickinson

A dog comes to you and lives with you in your own house, but you do not therefore own her, as you do not own the rain, or the trees, or the laws which pertain to them … A dog can never tell you what she knows from the smells of the world, but you know, watching her, that you know almost nothing. - Mary Oliver

A dog does not flee from a bone. - Irish Proverb

A dog reflects the family life. Whoever saw a frisky dog in a gloomy family, or a sad dog in a happy one? Snarling people have snarling dogs, dangerous people have dangerous ones. - Arthur Conan Doyle

A dog teaches a boy fidelity, perseverance, and to turn around three times before lying down. - Robert Benchley

A dog that will fetch a bone, will carry a bone. - R. Forby

A dog with a bone knows no friend. - Dutch Proverb

An old dog does not bark in vain. - Spanish Proverb

An old dog will learn no tricks. - Italian Proverb

As the hound, so the pup. - Irish Proverb

Beware of the dog that does not bark. - Portuguese Proverb

Dogs are better than human beings because they know but do not tell. - Emily Dickinson

Dogs are easy. If their tails are up and their eyes are soft, you're in. - Paula McLain

Dogs are obsessed with being happy. - James Thurber

Dogs are like a gift, a grace undeserved, that releases us into an economy of abundance, where the economic laws of scarcity and therefore competition no longer apply and where instead we feel ourselves the beneficiaries of a wealth that is actualized only as we give it away, and in giving we see something we could not see before. - Stephen H. Webb

Dogs are one of the luxuries of civilization: in uncivilized life they are perhaps more one of the necessities. - H. W. Shaw

Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring – it was peace. - Milan Kundera

Dogs are voiceless ... a critical part of having dogs is emotional responsibility: learning how to understand them and, when necessary, to speak and act on their behalf. - Jon Katz

Dogs are wise. They crawl away into a quiet corner and lick their wounds and do not rejoin the world until they are whole once more. - Agatha Christie

Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen. - Orhan Pamuk
