Words Of Note

A dog, more than any other creature, it seems to me, gets interested in one subject, theme, or object, in life, and pursues it with a fixity of purpose which would be inspiring to Man if it weren't so troublesome.

E.B. White, American author and humorist

From 'One Man's Meat' (1945).
