Philosophers & Cats

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The greatness of a person
is measured by the way
they treat the little guy.
Compassion for the weak
is a sign of greatness. 
   Myles Munroe

The sign of intelligent people
is their ability to control
their emotions by the
application of reason. 
      Marya Mannes 

The need to be right
is the sign of a
vulgar mind. 
     Albert Camus

I have studied many philosophers
and many cats. The
wisdom of cats is
infinitely superior. 
    Hippolyte Taine

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie

Hippolyte Taine was completely right.

Pixie is relaxed in her wisdom.

Pixie is wise enough to not let a pesky little fly interfere with your napping prowess. I love the name Hippolyte Taine, although I do wonder about the person's parents saddling a child with such a name... Is the drink red and partially hidden by the yellow pillar? It looks like Hawaiian Punch.

"Compassion for the weak is a sign of greatness." I LOVE that. And I agree that Pixie is superior to many philosophers. Cuter, too.

I found TWO drinks, Cloudia. The take out coffee/tea drink to the right of the man on the left in the photo, and the water bottle in front of the man on the far right. Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos and pearls of wisdom, as well as your drinks with us for T this week, dear.
