Top Tigers And Lions Quotes

Tigers And Lions Quotes By P.T. Barnum

OLD GRIZZLY ADAMS. [37-*] James C. Adams, or "Grizzly Adams," as he was generally termed, from the fact of his having captured so many grizzly bears, and encountered such fearful perils by his unexampled daring, was an extraordinary character. For many years a hunter and trapper in the Rocky and Sierra Nevada Mountains, he acquired a recklessness which, added to his natural invincible courage, rendered him truly one of the most striking men of the age. He was emphatically what the English call a man of "pluck." In 1860, he arrived in New York with his famous collection of California animals, captured by himself, consisting of twenty or thirty immense grizzly bears, at the head of which stood "Old Sampson" - now in the American Museum - wolves, half a dozen other species of bear, California lions, tigers, buffalo, elk, etc., and Old Neptune, the great sea-lion, from the Pacific. — P.T. Barnum

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Terry Pratchett

What did they feed the lions and tigers with in the ark, sir? — Terry Pratchett

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Bertrand Russell

The raw fruits of the earth were made for human sustenance. Even the white tails of rabbits, according to some theologians, have a purpose, namely to make it easier for sportsmen to shoot them. There are, it is true, some inconveniences: lions and tigers are too fierce, the summer is too hot, and the winter too cold. But these things only began after Adam ate the apple; I before that, all animals were vegetarians, and the season was always spring. If only Adam had been content with peaches and nectarines, grapes and pears and pineapples, these blessings would still be ours. — Bertrand Russell

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Michael Crichton

The reason I ask," Malcolm said, "is that I'm told large predators such as lions and tigers are not born man-eaters. Isn't that true? These animals must learn somewhere along the way that human beings are easy to kill. Only afterward do they become man-killers." "Yes, I believe that's true," Grant said. "Well, these dinosaurs must be even more reluctant than lions and tigers. After all, they come from a time before human beings - or even large mammals - existed at all. God knows what they think when they see us. So I wonder: have they learned, somewhere along the line, that humans are easy to kill? — Michael Crichton

Tigers And Lions Quotes By L. Frank Baum

Lions and tigers and Funkyoid, oh my! — L. Frank Baum

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Howard Thompson

This is a really good circus. It has lions, tigers, dogs, monkeys and about any other animal act you can think of. There are a lot of great acts, and it's a two part, two hour show. — Howard Thompson

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Mike Tyson

I used to have lots of tigers. I had all sorts of exotic pets when I had some money. Before I was broke, I had everything. Pigeons and vultures, lions, tigers, and bears. I had it all. — Mike Tyson

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Kurt Vonnegut

There were two monsters sharing this planet with us when I was a boy, however, and I celebrate their extinction today. They were determined to kill us, or at least to make our lives meaningless. They came close to success. They were cruel adversaries, which my little friends the beavers were not. Lions? No. Tigers? No. Lions and tigers snoozed most of the time. The monsters I will name never snoozed. They inhabited our heads. They were the arbitrary lusts for gold, and, God help us, for a glimpse of a little girl's underpants. — Kurt Vonnegut

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Shelly Laurenston

Zach - "Yes. And Tigers. And mountain lions. There's an array of shifters."
Sara - "Bunnies? — Shelly Laurenston

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Annie Smith Peck

I am afraid if there is anything to be afraid of. A precipice cannot hurt you. Lions and tigers can. The streets of New York I consider more dangerous than the Matterhorn to a thoroughly competent and careful climber. — Annie Smith Peck

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Patricia Cornwell

In the animal kingdom, lions, tigers and bears - the predators - have closely spaced eyes. Giraffes, rabbits, doves - the preyed upon - have eyes more widely spaced and oriented toward the sides of their heads, because they need their peripheral vision to survive. — Patricia Cornwell

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Carl Sagan

The time scale for evolutionary or genetic change is very long. A characteristic period for the emergence of one advanced species from another is perhaps a hundred thousand years; and very often the difference in behavior between closely related species -say, lions and tigers- do not seem very great... But today we do not have ten million years to wait for the next advance. We live in a time when our world is changing at an unprecedented rate. While the changes are largely of our own making, they cannot be ignored. We must adjust and adapt and control, or we perish. — Carl Sagan

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Akilnathan Logeswaran

In a world full of lions and tigers entertaining the masses, have you ever seen a wolf performing in a circus? — Akilnathan Logeswaran

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Katie Bayerl

Lions and tigers and pissed-off girls, oh my. — Katie Bayerl

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Michael Jackson

Everything that I love is behind those gates. We have elephants, and giraffes, and crocodiles, and every kind of tigers and lions. And - and we have bus loads of kids, who don't get to see those things. They come up sick children, and enjoy it. — Michael Jackson

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Edward Abbey

A world without huge regions of total wilderness would be a cage; a world without lions and tigers and vultures and snakes and elk and bison would be - will be - a human zoo. A high-tech slum. — Edward Abbey

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Mahendra Singh Dhoni

When people talk about South Africa, it's all about lions and elephants. But when we talk about India, we talk about tigers. — Mahendra Singh Dhoni

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Ken Wilson

In other words, the biblical writers were speaking to those who shared a rich cultural context, which shaped the way they communicated. I grew up in Detroit and share a rich cultural context with other Detroiters. When I say words like lions, tigers, and wings, I don't have to specify that I mean the professional football, baseball, and hockey teams. Fellow Detroiters get it because we share a rich cultural context. — Ken Wilson

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Marge Piercy

We admire predators - panthers, lions, tigers, even wolves. Maybe to be naturally thoughtful and hesitant to use violence is to be somehow second rate. To be in the middle of the social food chain. Especially if you're a man. This society thinks real men are violent. — Marge Piercy

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Chuck Palahniuk

We hear the ambient noise of children singing. We hear lions and tigers roar. Hyenas laugh. Some jungle bird or howler monkey declares its existence, screeching a maniac's gibberish. Our entire world, always doing battle against the silence and obscurity of death. — Chuck Palahniuk

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Lewis Carroll

Are there any lions or tigers about here?' she asked timidly.
'It's only the Red King snoring,' said Tweedledee.
'Come and look at him!' the brothers cried, and they each took one of Alice's hands, and led her up to where the King was sleeping.
'Isn't he a LOVELY sight?' said Tweedledum. — Lewis Carroll

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Samuel Taylor Coleridge

What! Did Sir W[alter] R[aleigh] believe that a male and female ounce (and, if so, why not two tigers and lions, etc?) would have produced, in a course of generations, a cat, or a cat a lion? This is Darwinizing with a vengeance. — Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Tigers And Lions Quotes By L. Frank Baum

Lions and tigers, and bears, oh my! - Dorothy in Wizard of Oz — L. Frank Baum

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Tippi Hedren

I had to have help getting up these stairs because I've been tackled by so many lions and tigers. Really. I'm like an old football player. — Tippi Hedren

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Shirley Temple

Animal crackers in my soup Monkeys and rabbits loop the loop Gosh oh gee but I have fun Swallowing animals one by one In every bowl of soup I see Lions and Tigers watching me I make 'em jump right through a hoop Those animal crackers in my soup When I get hold of the big bad wolf I just push him under to drown Then I bite him in a million bits And I gobble him right down When their inside me where it's dark I walk around like Noah's ark I stuff my tummy like a goop With animal crackers in my soup. — Shirley Temple

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Selwyn Raab

Put it in their face," Gotti urged Sammy the Bull Gravano. "They want to see fucking lions and tigers and that's what we are. — Selwyn Raab

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Umberto Eco

Before the eyes of monks intent on meditation, what is the meaning of those ridiculous grotesques, those monstrous shapes and shapely monsters? Those sordid apes? Those lions, those centaurs, those half-human creatures, with mouths in their bellies, with single feet, ears like sails? Those spotted tigers, those fighting warriors, those hunters blowing their horns, and those many bodies with single heads and many heads with single bodies? Quadrupeds with serpents' tails, and fish with quadrupeds' faces, and here an animal who seems a horse in front and a ram behind, and there a horse with horns, and so on; by now it is more pleasurable for a monk to read marble than manuscript, and to admire the works of man than to meditate on the law of God. Shame! For the desire of your eyes and for your smiles! — Umberto Eco

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Victor Hugo

For dogs we kings should have lions, and for cats, tigers. The great benefits a crown. — Victor Hugo

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Jacqueline Rayner

A trapdoor had slammed open at the edge of the arena, followed by another and another. Slowly, reluctantly, animals were forced through the gaps. Lions, tigers, bears. "Oh my!" said the Doctor, as the trapdoors slammed shut again. — Jacqueline Rayner

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Abigail Roux

Men were trying to kill him, lions and tigers lived next door, his wife was on the warpath, and his son had brought home a man he loved. When — Abigail Roux

Tigers And Lions Quotes By A.A. Milne

That's what Jagulars always do," said Pooh, much interested. "They call 'Help! Help!' and then when you look up, they drop on you."
"I'm looking down," cried Piglet loudly, so as the Jagular shouldn't do the wrong thing by accident. — A.A. Milne

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Spiro T. Agnew

As for those deserters, malcontents, radicals, incendiaries, the civil and uncivil disobedients among the young, SDS, PLP, Weathermen I and Weathermen II, the revolutionary action movement, the Black United Front, Yippies, Hippies, Yahoos, Black Panthers, Lions and Tigers alike - I would swap the whole damn zoo for a single platoon of the kind of young Americans I saw in Vietnam. — Spiro T. Agnew

Tigers And Lions Quotes By James Lee

Nothing is more important than saving ... the Lions, Tigers, Giraffes, Elephants, Froggies, Turtles, Apes, Raccoons, Beetles, Ants, Sharks, Bears, and, of course, the Squirrels. The humans? The planet does not need humans. — James Lee

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Gertrude Berg

Some people have family crests, lions, tigers, unicorns, elephants - a whole menagerie - and if my family had a crest, you know what would be on it? A blintze. I mean it. All the good things in my life are measured in blintzes because by us it's not a party if there isn't a blintze ... — Gertrude Berg

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Breanne Sartori

Leopards are powerful and graceful animals that live on the continents of Africa and Asia. They are a member of the cat family, but they are nothing like your pet cat! Leopards are strong and dangerous hunters, just like lions and tigers. Out of all the cats it is the best at climbing and is the most secretive. What do Leopards Look Like? — Breanne Sartori

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Paul Theroux

I have a hatred of the taming of animals, especially large ones that are so contented in the wild. I abominate circus acts that involve big befooled beasts
cowed tigers or helplessly roaring lions pawing the air and teetering on small stools. I deplore zoos and anything to do with animal confinement or restraint. — Paul Theroux

Tigers And Lions Quotes By David Pearce

It is easy to romanticise, say, tigers or lions and cats. We admire their magnificent beauty, strength and agility. But we would regard their notional human counterparts as wanton psychopaths of the worst kind. — David Pearce

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Bryony Pearce

Lions and tigers, bitches and bears, oh my. — Bryony Pearce

Tigers And Lions Quotes By Hugh Lofting

Are they given in exchange for the glory of an African sunrise, for the twilight breeze whispering through the palms, for the green shade of the matted, tangled vines, for the cool, big-starred nights of the desert, for the patter of the waterfall after a hard day's hunt? What, I ask you, are they given in exchange for THESE? Why, a bare cage with iron bars; an ugly piece of dead meat thrust in to them once a day; and a crowd of fools to come and stare at them with open mouths! - No, Stubbins. Lions and tigers, the Big Hunters, should never, never be seen in zoos. — Hugh Lofting
