Animals
Engrave this Quote Animals are stylized characters in a kind of old saga -- stylized because even the most acute of them have little leeway as they play out their parts.

-Edward Hoagland
Engrave this Quote Animals used to provide a lowlife way to kill and get away with it, as they do still, but, more intriguingly, for some people they are an aperture through which wounds drain. The scapegoat of olden times, driven off for the bystanders sins, has become a tender thing, a running injury. There, running away is me: hurt it and you are hurting me.

City Life, Cities
Engrave this Quote Country people tend to consider that they have a corner on righteousness and to distrust most manifestations of cleverness, while people in the city are leery of righteousness but ascribe to themselves all manner of cleverness.

-Edward Hoagland
Engrave this Quote There is a time of life somewhere between the sullen fugues of adolescence and the retrenchments of middle age when human nature becomes so absolutely absorbing one wants to be in the city constantly, even at the height of summer.

Competition
Engrave this Quote Men often compete with one another until the day they die; comradeship consists of rubbing shoulders jocularly with a competitor.

Conservation
Engrave this Quote The question of whether it's God's green earth is not at center stage, except in the sense that if so, one is reminded with some regularity that He may be dying.

Divorce
Engrave this Quote Many divorces are not really the result of irreparable injury but involve, instead, a desire on the part of the man or woman to shatter the setup, start out from scratch alone, and make life work for them all over again. They want the risk of disaster, want to touch bottom, see where bottom is, and, coming up, to breathe the air with relief and relish again.

Dogs
Engrave this Quote In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi-human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

Humanity
Engrave this Quote Like a kick in the butt, the force of events wakes slumberous talents.

Infatuation
Engrave this Quote There aren't many irritations to match the condescension which a woman metes out to a man who she believes has loved her vainly for the past umpteen years.

Men & Women
Engrave this Quote Men greet each other with a sock on the arm, women with a hug, and the hug wears better in the long run.

Religion
Engrave this Quote It's incongruous that the older we get, the more likely we are to turn in the direction of religion. Less vivid and intense ourselves, closer to the grave, we begin to conceive of ourselves as immortal.

Slavery
Engrave this Quote To relive the relationship between owner and slave we can consider how we treat our cars and dogs -- a dog exercising a somewhat similar leverage on our mercies and an automobile being comparable in value to a slave in those days.

Solitude
Engrave this Quote True solitude is a din of birdsong, seething leaves, whirling colors, or a clamor of tracks in the snow.

Time
Engrave this Quote City people try to buy time as a rule, when they can, whereas country people are prepared to kill time, although both try to cherish in their mind's eye the notion of a better life ahead.

Walking
Engrave this Quote If a walker is indeed an individualist there is nowhere he can't go at dawn and not many places he can't go at noon. But just as it demeans life to live alongside a great river you can no longer swim in or drink from, to be crowded into safer areas and hours takes much of the gloss off walking -- one sport you shouldn't have to reserve a time and a court for.

Wisdom
Engrave this Quote There often seems to be a playfulness to wise people, as if either their equanimity has as its source this playfulness or the playfulness flows from the equanimity; and they can persuade other people who are in a state of agitation to calm down and manage a smile.
