I’ve been told the difference between cats and dogs is that a dog looks at his master and says, ‘Wow, he gives me food, gives me toys, plays with me, he grooms me … he must be a god.’ And a cat looks at his master and says, ‘Wow, he gives me food, he gives me toys, he plays with me, he grooms me … I must be a god.’
Surrounded by a super-abundance of choices very few of us feel like dogs. We don’t feel humble that we live in a world where things have been taken care of us this way, we tend to feel empowered … whether or not we actually are. We don’t regard the people who provide us with those choices as special and worthy, we feel that we’re special and worthy to be addressed so deliberately, so earnestly, and so creatively.
