Clara Barton

Owners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are God. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and affection, they draw the conclusion that they are God.

You don't need to know this - but here goes: due to some acquired infantilism, I feel compelled to fall asleep listening to the radio.

Will Self

Plato
