Horton Hears a Who! Madness Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

"For almost two days you've run wild and insisted On chatting with persons who've never existed." (127-128)

Is Horton really bothering anyone by chatting with the Whos? Why does it bug the other animals so much?

Quote #2

"Grab him!" they shouted. "And cage the big dope!" (164)

Name-calling isn't very nice—we all know that. And if he is crazy, shouldn't they be trying to help him, not just making fun of him?
