We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle; easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we would still live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan.

— Irving Townsend

The most grateful Irving Townsend quotes that are guaranted to improve your brain

Another cat? Perhaps. For love there is also a season; its seeds must be resown. But a family cat is not replaceable like a wornout coat or a set of tires. Each new kitten becomes its own cat, and none is repeated. I am four cats old, measuring out my life in friends that have succeeded but not replaced one another.


No one shall deny me my own conclusions, nor my cat her reflective purr.


Could the purr be anything but contemplative?


Unlike us, cats never outgrow their delight in cat capacities, nor do they settle finally for limitations. Cats, I think, live out their lives fulfilling their expectations.


It was not I who was teaching my cat to gather rosebuds, but she who was teaching me.
