Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning: “There is a mousetrap in the house!

Picture Quotes

Sometimes a god comes.... He brings a new way to do a thing, or a new thing to be done. A new kind of singing, or a new kind of death. He brings this across the bridge between the dream-time and the world-time. When he has done this, it is done.
