Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats - Edward Gorey, T.S. Eliot

The helpful thought for which you look
Is written somewhere in a book.

 

Edward Gorey

 

Though creepy-cute pioneer Edward Gorey (died April 15, 2000) was not a fan of children, he did love the ballet, cats, and, perhaps incongruously, fur coats. He left his estate to a trust benefiting animals--his cats continued to live at his house after his death.
