One-Liner Wednesday — Man and Dog

“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you, which is the principal difference between a dog and a man.”

Mark Twain, American writer, humorist, publisher, and lecturer

    Two other sayings about dogs that Twain is credited with:

    “The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog” and
    “Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you’d stay out and your dog would go in.”

    He had quite the sharp wit, that guy. I love his books!

    The difference between a woman and a dog is that if you lock both in the truck of your car, who will still greet you happily when you open the lid 😀 😀
