"Jim Davis Quotes"


+ I try to keep lines simple and that's something I learned by watching Charles Schulz. My strip is pretty clean looking, stylistically. I avoid anything that's not necessary to move the gag forward.

+ Way down deep, we're all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them.

+ Garfield is a lazy, fat, self-indulgent cat who thinks he's a human. He is wry and quick-witted and makes no apologies for himself. When he's not napping or eating, he's kicking Odie.
