A book of witty and wise quotes can, at times, teach one much more in a few hours than a lifetime of bumbling around. Many a times, we come across witty quotes and sayings that are soon forgotten. It was these thoughts that prompted me to compile a book of the most witty and wise quotes and proverbs that I had come across. The focus of this book, though, is more on animals, nature and man. Many quotes of the rich and famous stress the importance of compassion towards all our fellow creatures that inhabit the earth. I sincerely hope that the words of wit and wisdom contained in this book will prompt readers to display more compassion towards all living beings. The quotes have been culled from many different sources and my sincere thanks to all the previous compilers and authors.
