Will Rogers on Love

 A mother is the only thing that is so constituted
that they possess eternal love under any and all
circumstances. No matter how you treat them,
you still have the love....
I was telling that to my wife today, and I was
telling her a little thought that I wanted to use
in there, and I said - you know, Betty - I says -
a mother and a dog is the only two friends that
has eternal love. No matter how you treat 'em ...
And my wife makes me cut the dog out. Said it -
well, it didn't sound very good, and it might
sound disrespectful to a mother, but I certainly
didn't mean it that way, but it's the only thing
that really is.  You know what I mean.
