C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Brute
 
  A singular fact, that, when man is a brute, he is the most sensual and loathsome of all brutes.
Hawthorne.    
  1
  Notwithstanding that natural love in brutes is much more violent and intense than in rational creatures, Providence has taken care that it should be no longer troublesome to the parent than it is useful to the young; for so soon as the wants of the latter cease, the mother withdraws her fondness, and leaves them to provide for themselves.
Addison.
