Vulture Quotations

by

John Gay (30 June 1685 – 4 December 1732)

“Lions, wolves, and vultures don’t live together in herds, droves or flocks. Of all animals of prey, man is the only sociable one. Every one of us preys upon his neighbor, and yet we herd together.”

Amy Lawrence Lowell (February 9, 1874 – May 12, 1925)

“Hate is ravening vulture beaks descending on a place of skulls.”

W. Somerset Maugham (25 January 1874 – 16 December 1965)

“In the country the darkness of night is friendly and familiar, but in a city, with its blaze of lights, it is unnatural, hostile and menacing. It is like a monstrous vulture that hovers, biding its time.”
