“In order to keep a true perspective on one’s importance, everyone should have a dog that will worship him and a cat that will ignore him.” – Dereke Bruce
This quote is quite famous, showing up in a number of quotebases, but no one seems to know who Dereke Bruce is. If you look for him via Google, Yahoo or Amazon, nothing relevant comes up, other than this quote. Yours truly, your author, might be responsible for that. As you may know, I have been publishing insightful and fun trivia for years. I believe I found this quote in a 1980’s vintage Omni Magazine, and first published it in Almanac 1989. In the past several years, it has been picked up and repeated throughout the Internet.
