I’ve always been a big fan of cartoons, from the homely and hilarious, to the provocative and poignant. One of the ones I used to read regularly was Calvin and Hobbes, the tales of a mischievous young boy and his tiger friend that only Calvin can see. They even made a previous line(s) of the day. Here are eight of my favourites. Which ones stand out to you? And if I’ve swayed you, you’ll find more here.
Calvin: You know, sometimes the world seems like a pretty mean place.
Hobbes: That’s why animals are so soft and huggy.
