#1. That was the end of Grogan... the man who killed my father, raped and murdered my sister, burned my ranch, shot my dog, and stole my Bible! - Author: Diane Thomas
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by Diane Thomas
#2. Standing out there in th dark, I felt many different things. One of them was pride in my fellow Americans, ordinary people who rose to the moment, knowing it was their last. One was humility, for I was alive and untouched by the horrors of that day, free to continue my happy life as a husband and father and writer. In the lonely blackness, I could almost taste the finiteness of life and thus it's preciousness. We take it for granted, but it is fragile, precarious, uncertain able to cease at any instant without notice. I was reminded of what should be obvious but too often is not, that each today, each hour and minute, is worth cherishing. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#3. Melony put herself straight to bed without her dinner. Mrs. Grogan, worried about her, went to Melony's bed and felt her forehead, which was feverish, but Mrs. Grogan could not coax Melony to drink anything. All Melony said was, 'He broke his promise.' Later, she said, 'Homer Wells has left St. Cloud's.'
'You have a little temperature, dear,' said Mrs. Grogan, but when Homer Wells didn't come to read Jane Eyre aloud that evening, Mrs. Grogan started paying closer attention. She allowed Melony to read to the girls that evening; Melony's voice was oddly flat and passionless. Melony's reading from Jane Eyre depressed Mrs. Grogan – especially when she read this part:
…it is madness in all women to let a secret love kindle within them, which, if unreturned and unknown, must devour the life that feeds it…
Why, the girl didn't bat an eye! Mrs. Grogan observed.

#4. Animal lovers are a special breed of humans, generous of spirit, full of empathy, perhaps a little prone to sentimentality, and with hearts as big as a cloudless sky - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#5. We now had three girls and one testosterone-pumped guy bird that spent every walking minute doing of of three things: pursuing sex, having sex or crowing boastfully about the sex he had just scored. Jenny observed that roosters are what men would be if left to their own devices, with no social conventions to rein in their baser instincts, and I couldn't disagree. I had to admit, I kind of admired the lucky bastard. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan

Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#7. I had never thought of Marley as any kind of model, but sitting there sipping my beer, I was aware that maybe he held the secret for a good life. Never slow down, never look back, live each day w/ adolescent verve and spunk and curiosity and playfulness. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#8. 'Marley and Me' was a book I was proud of and believed in, but I thought it would just have a modest audience because it is such a personal story about my marriage and my family. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#9. A dog has no use for fancy cars, big homes, or designer clothes. A water logged stick will do just fine. A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he'll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary? - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan

Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#12. When I wrote 'Marley & Me,' I had a clear audience in mind. And it did not include children. I wrote my book for adults and assumed only adults, and possibly teenagers, would be drawn to it. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#13. In fact, I'd go one better, and venture that there's nothing more important than friendship: if it should then take you to the ends of the earth with someone you like and admire, so much the better - Author: Paul Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by Paul Grogan
#14. A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#15. Another story tells of Grogan, passing through New York, performed a public burning of dollar bills, and the dollar dropped six points on Wall Street. - Author: Jeff Nuttall
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by Jeff Nuttall
#16. A dog has no use for fancy cars or big homes or designer clothes. Status symbol means nothing to him. A waterlogged stick will do just fine. A dog judges others not by their color or creed or class but by who they are inside. A dog doesn't care if you are rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his. It was really quite simple, and yet we humans, so much wiser and more sophisticated, have always had trouble figuring out what really counts and what does not. As I wrote that farewell column to Marley, I realized it was all right there in front of us, if only we opened our eyes. Sometimes it took a dog with bad breath, worse manners, and pure intentions to help us see. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#17. A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#18. Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day.
It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#19. Grant us safe lodging, and holy rest," Mrs. Grogan was saying, "and peace at last." Amen, thought Wilbur Larch, the Saint of St. Cloud's, who was seventy-something, and an ether addict, and who felt that he'd come a long way and still had a long way to go. - Author: John Irving
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Irving
#20. I confess to being a CNN junkie. And when I'm driving, it's all NPR all the time. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#21. Dogs are a really amazing eye opener for us humans because their lives are compressed into such a short period, so we can see them go from puppyhood to adolescence to strong adulthood and then into their sunset years in 10 to 12 years. It really drives home the point of how finite all our lives are. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#22. We all have our alloted portions of black and white paint; how we lay it on is a question of temperament. - Author: Ewart S. Grogan

Vecellio And Grogan quotes by James Joyce
#24. In a dog's life, some plaster would fall, some cushions would open, some rugs would shred. Like any relationship, this one had its costs. They were costs we came to accept and balance against the joy and amusement and protection and companionship he gave us. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
#25. I can't solve the world's problems, can't even begin to contemplate them all. But on my little corner of Earth, I at least can try to live in a way that treads lightly. - Author: John Grogan
Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan

Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan

Vecellio And Grogan quotes by John Grogan
