Favorite Greyhounds Quotes

1. "It becomes obvious the moment we acknowledge the futility of breeding men for special qualities as we breed cocks for game, greyhounds for speed, or sheep for mutton. What is really important in Man is the part of him that we do not yet understand. Of much of it we are not even conscious, just as we are not normally conscious of keeping up our circulation by our heart pump, though if we reject it we die. We are therefore driven to the conclusion that when we have carried selection as far as we can by rejecting from the list of eligible parents all persons who are uninteresting, unpromising, or blemished without any set-off, we shall have to trust to the guidance of fancy (alias Voice of Nature), both in the breeders and the parents, for that superiority in the unconscious self which will be the true characteristic of the Superman."
Author: George Bernard Shaw
2. "It seems wrong and unfair that Christmas, with its stressful and unmanageable financial and emotional challenges, should first be forced upon one wholly against one's will, then rudely snatched away just when one is starting to get into it. Was really beginning to enjoy the feeling that normal service was suspended and it was OK to lie in bed as long as you want, put anything you fancy into your mouth, and drink alcohol whenever it should chance to pass your way, even in the mornings. Now suddenly we are all supposed to snap into self-discipline like lean teenage greyhounds."
Author: Helen Fielding
3. "Where's your dog?" Peter's voice came from within the gushing stream of water. Justin thought he must have misheard."Pardon?""Your dog.""Yes?""Isn't he with you today?" Justin looked at Peter."Ha bloody ha." Peter stuck his head out of the stream of water, features dripping. He smiled shyly. "I love greyhounds." Justin stared."My dog is imaginary.""Oh." Peter looked interested. "That's unusual." Justin put his head under the water. When he emerged, Peter was still looking at him."Less work," Peter offered, cheerily. "If the dog's imaginary, I mean. Not so much grooming, feeding, et cetera."
Author: Meg Rosoff
4. "Capitalism lures us onward like the mechanical hare before the greyhounds,insisting that the economy is infinite and sharing therefore irrelevant. Just enough greyhounds catch areal hare now and then to keep the others running till they drop. In the past it was only the poor wholost this game; now it is the planet."
Author: Ronald Wright
5. "The lovers of the chase say that the hare feels more agony during the pursuit of the greyhounds, than when she is struggling in their fangs."
Author: Walter Scott
6. "I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,Straining upon the start. The game's afoot;Follow your spirit: and upon this charge,Cry — God for Harry! England and Saint George!"
Author: William Shakespeare

Today's Quote

Quelques fois je me disais qu'il passait peut-être toute une journée sans penser une seconde à moi. Je le voyais se lever, prendre son café, parler, rire, comme si je n'existais pas. Ce décalage avec ma propre obsession me remplissait d'étonnement. Comment était-ce possible. Mais lui-même aurait été stupéfait d'apprendre qu'il ne quittait pas ma tête du matin au soir. Il n'y avait pas de raison de trouver plus juste mon attitude ou la sienne. En un sens, j'avais plus de chance que lui."
