Horton Hatches the Egg

Horton Hatches the Egg Ethics and Morality Quotes
How we cite our quotes: (Line)
He held his head high
And he threw out his chest
And he looked at the hunters
As much as to say
"Shoot if you must but I won't run away!" (107-111)
Aw, our hero. Ready to take a bullet for his little egg.
"Let's take him alive. Why he's terribly funny!
We'll sell him back home to a circus, for money! (125-126)
If you've been to the circus or even the zoo with your little tykes, you might have some splainin' to do at this point. Good luck with that one.
