Mongrel Quotations

I see music as one language. If one musical form eats its own tail, it dies. So it needs to be a mongrel, it needs to be hybridised.

Satiety is a mongrel that barks at the heels of plenty.
Minna Antrim

I have loved but one flag and I can not share that devotion and give affection to the mongrel banner invented for the League of Nations.
Henry Cabot Lodge

When Reg died and we first looked into getting a new dog, I was adamant we should pick up a mongrel from an animal-rescue shelter. It's not only that they're usually healthier and have better temperaments, they also fit with my world view - I prefer a ballpoint to a fountain pen, a barber to a hair stylist, and camping over glamping.
Mark Barrowcliffe

A culture cannot lie down with dogs and not become utterly infested with fleas. The dogs, in this case, are the mongrel media and the corporate overlords who have grown fat on manufactured controversy and fear mongering.
Steven Weber
