"If we do not feel a bond with the animals who share with us this moment in eternity, we do not comprehend eternity."
"No one knows exactly how many recipes for happiness there are, but it's got to be right up there with shepherd's pie."
"To be happy knowing that we could be happier, that is the whole trick."
"Whether you shelter a happy child, a contented pet or a thriving plant, you make a home."
"Two things are owed to truthfulness: lasting marriages and short friendships."
