The Dog-Eared Book of Dog-Eared Quotations
by Paul Kocak
What is a dog-eared quotation? Fold the upper corner of a page in a book you are reading. With a little imagination, the folded corner looks like a dog’s ear. Scan the text on the page. Find a sentence or a phrase you want to remember or to quote in speech or in writing. There you have it: a dog-eared quotation. The dog-eared quotes selected here are quirky, idiosyncratic, undemocratic, and wildly subjective. The quotations are not the product of research or study. You might say this compilation has been lying in wait, like a dog on the porch in August, its tongue lolling as it napped. In the spirit of a dog’s finely attuned ear, the collected quotes include snippets not only from books but also from TV shows, movies, and songs. The vast majority of the quotations are the fruits of personal reading, collected without much thought of ever doing anything with them. Browse, wander, ruminate over, recoil from, debate, ponder, brood over, or savor these morsels. Read them in any order, or in no order. Feel free to quote these quotations. Give the author’s words new life, or a different life. In doing so, you will sound wise, witty, and smart.
