F. Scott Fitzgerald Quote
“Whenever you feel like criticizing any one... just remember that all the people in this world haven't had the advantages that you've had.”
―F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Great Gatsby (1925)
As quoted in The New York Times (28 October 1973)
“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring — it was peace.”
As quoted in The Canine Hiker's Bible (2000) by Doug Gelbert, p. 8
“The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.”
―Pearl S. Buck
