Chuck Jones Quote of the Day: Cringing Little Creature

"Well, it turns out that man, for instance, is not quite the helpless
cringing little creature he likes to think he is:  of all the living
creatures in the world, from amoeba to sulphur-bottomed whales, man
belongs in the top two percent in size and probably in the top half of
one percent in ferocity, blood lust and sheer muscle."

"A story about a man is not important because he is a man but because of what kind of man he is, and it is the same with ducks.  The more you know Daffy, the better you like him, because you are going to recognize yourself.  To me, he his Daffy, that is all." –Chuck Jones, writing in Chuck Reducks, Drawing on the Fun Side of Life
