Louise MacNeice – Taking to animals to escape humans

Share this quote:
Many people take to animals to escape from human beings — but often, it turns out, because they find the animals so human. Others, of whom I am one, find animals a delightful change just because they are not human and never can be.

Louise MacNeice   (1907-1963)

Michel de Montaigne – Run to my books

Share this quote:
Michel de MontaigneTo divert myself from a troublesome fancy, it is but to run to my books: they presently fix me to them, and drive the other out of my thoughts, and do not mutiny to see that I have only recourse to them for want of other more real, natural, and lively conveniences: they always receive me with the same kindness.
