They fought the dogs and killed the cats“

—  Robert Browning, The Pied Piper of Hamelin

The Pied Piper of Hamelin, line 10 (1842).
Kontext: Rats!
They fought the dogs and killed the cats,
And bit the babies in the cradles,
And ate the cheeses out of the vats,
And licked the soup from the cooks' own ladles,
Split open the kegs of salted sprats,
Made nests inside men's Sunday hats,
And even spoiled the women's chats
By drowning their speaking
With shrieking and squeaking
In fifty different sharps and flats.

„Several times I'd have been killed if I hadn't been able to land like a cat.“

—  Buster Keaton American actor and filmmaker 1895 - 1966

Interview in The Detroit News (4 December 1914)
Kontext: The funny thing about our act is that dad gets the worst of it, although I'm the one who apparently receives the bruises … the secret is in landing limp and breaking the fall with a foot or a hand. It's a knack. I started so young that landing right is second nature with me. Several times I'd have been killed if I hadn't been able to land like a cat. Imitators of our act don't last long, because they can't stand the treatment.
