Hope springs eternal in the heart of a dog watching through a glass door as its family eats a meal.

was it chesterton who said a crazy person is someone who won't change his mind and won't change the subject?

Churchill: "A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject."

I don't think you should say "human pest" as it's not a joke in this evil age (there is a very real God-hating view of man as virus on the earth). Also if it's in the sense of "...in this human pest" (meaning the speaker), it's self-referential, and we do enough thinking it's all about us already, we don't need another saying to reinforce that falsehood.

I vote for Pope's version.
