Of all the ways of defining man, the worst is the one which makes him out to be a rational animal.
All things will be produced in superior quantity and quality, and with greater ease, when each man works at a single occupation, in accordance with his natural gifts, and at the right moment, without meddling with anything else.
Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals.
If you call a cat, he may not come. Which doesn't happen with dogs. They're different types of animals. Cats are very sexy I think too in the way they move.
Now, the external work of man is of the most varied kind as regards the force or ease, the form and rapidity, of the motions used on it, and the kind of work produced.

The little may contrast with the great, in painting, but cannot be said to be contrary to it. Oppositions of colors contrast; but there are also colors contrary to each other, that is, which produce an ill effect because they shock the eye when brought very near it.
A dog is not considered a good dog because he is a good barker. A man is not considered a good man because he is a good talker.
Man never legislates, but destinies and accidents, happening in all sorts of ways, legislate in all sorts of ways.
A man may learn wisdom even from a foe.
Woman is a vulgar animal from whom man has created an excessively beautiful ideal.
