alex atkins bookshelf quotationsIf you make people think they’re thinking, they’ll love you; but if you really make them think, they’ll hate you.

From Archy and Mehitabel by American journalist and humorist Don Marquis (1878-1937), best known for the humorous verses and short stories created by his fictional characters Archy (a cockroach) and Mehitabel (an alley cat). Marquis wrote a daily column, “The Sun Dial,” for many years for New York City’s The Evening Sun.
