Don't open a can of worms without knowing how to get the worms back inside.

In Animals Quotes
Time, as is well known, sometimes flies like a bird and sometimes crawls like a worm, but human beings are generally particularly happy when they don’t notice whether it’s passing quickly or slowly.

In Animals Quotes
I am nothing but a miserable, crushed worm, whom no one wants, whom no one loves, a useless creature with morning sickness, and a big belly, two rotten teeth, and a bad temper, a battered sense of dignity, and a love which nobody wants and which nearly drives me insane.

In Animals Quotes
A worm is as good a traveler as a grasshopper or a cricket, and a much wiser settler. With all their activity these do not hop away from drought nor forward to summer. We do not avoid evil by fleeing before it, but by rising above or diving below its plane; as the worm escapes drought and frost by boring a few inches deeper.

In Animals Quotes
A worm tells summer better than the clock,
The slug’s a living calendar of days;
What shall it tell me if a timeless insect
Says the world wears away?

In Animals Quotes
we know our end
A packet of worm-seed, a garden of spent tissues.

In Animals Quotes
With his worm-eaten maw,
And his ghastly jaw
Gasping aside,
Naked of hide,
Neither flesh nor fell.

In Animals Quotes
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg and owlet’s wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

In Animals Quotes
It costs me never a stab nor squirm
To tread by chance upon a worm.
"Aha, my little dear,'' I say,
"Your clan will pay me back one day.''

In Animals Quotes
You have made your way from worm to man, and much in you is still worm. Once you were apes, and even now man is still more ape than any ape.

In Animals Quotes
When stepped on, the worm curls up. That is a clever thing to do. Thus it reduces its chances of being stepped on again. In the language of morality: humility.

In Animals Quotes
A very little thing, a little worm,
Or hourglass-blazoned spider, it is said,
Can kill a tiger.

In Animals Quotes
The worm artist
out of soil, by passage
of himself
constructing.
Castles of metaphor!

In Animals Quotes
Her eyes the glow-worm lend thee,
The shooting stars attend thee;
And the elves also,
Whose little eyes glow
Like the sparks of fire, befriend thee.

In Animals Quotes
Tiger, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

Never get into a spraying match with a skunk.

In Animals Quotes
Sometimes when you get in a fight with a skunk, you can't tell who started it.

In Animals Quotes
The hare grows old as she plays in the sun
And gazes around her with eyes of brightness;
Before the swift things that she dreamed of were done
She limps along in an aged whiteness....

In Animals Quotes
The partridge and the rabbit are still sure to thrive, like true natives of the soil, whatever revolutions occur. If the forest is cut off, the sprouts and bushes which spring up afford them concealment, and they become more numerous than ever. That must be a poor country indeed that does not support a hare. Our woods teem with them both.

Poor is the triumph o’er the timid hare!

In Animals Quotes
In the morning,
The jack-rabbit sang to the Arkansaw.
He carolled in caracoles
On the feat sandbars.
