For a good life: Work like a dog. Eat like a horse. Think like a fox. And play like a rabbit.
George Allen

We are certainly in a common class with the beasts; every action of animal life is concerned with seeking bodily pleasure and avoiding pain.
Saint Augustine

I gave my beauty and my youth to men. I am going to give my wisdom and experience to animals.
Brigitte Bardot

The animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time.
Henry Beston

Man, unlike animals, has never learned that the sole purpose in life is to enjoy it.
Samuel Butler

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or a gazelle; when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.
Herb Caen

High office is like a pyramid; only two kinds of animals reach the summit, reptiles and eagles.
Jean-le-Rond d'Alembert

Whenever you observe an animal closely, you feel as if a human being sitting inside were making fun of you.
Elias Canetti

Isn't man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife by the millions in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billions (9 billion in the U.S. alone in 1996) and eats them. This in turn kills man by the millions, because eating all these animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year sends out cards praying for "Peace on Earth".
C. David Coats

Animals are such agreeable friends. They ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.
George Eliot (Mary Anne Evans)

If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow man.
St. Francis of Assisi

Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.
James A. Froude

As custodians of the planet it is our responsibility to deal with all species with kindness, love, and compassion. That animals suffer through human cruelty is beyond understanding. Please help stop this madness.
Richard Gere

People have got to understand that the commandment "Do unto others as you would that they should do unto you" applies to animals, plants and things, as well as to people. And that if it is regarded as applying only to people . . . then the animals, plants and things will, in one way or another, do as badly by man as man has done by them.
Aldous Leonard Huxley

We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form.
William Ralph Inge

Animals possess a soul and men must love and feel solidarity with our smaller brethren.
Pope John Paul II

When someone behaves like a beast, he says: "After all, one is only human." But when he is treated like a beast, he says, "After all, one is human."
Karl Kraus

I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.
David Herbert Lawrence

Just because an animal is large, it doesn't mean he doesn't want kindness; however big Tigger seems to be, remember that he wants as much kindness as Roo.
A. A. Milne

We are, despite all our great technological advances, still very much a simple biological phenomenon. Despite our grandiose ideas and our lofty self-conceits, we are still humble animals, subject to all the basic laws of animal behavior. - We tend to suffer from a strange complacency - that there is something special about us, that we are somehow above biological control. But we are not. Many exciting species have become extinct in the past and we are no exception. Sooner or later we shall go, and make way for something else. If it is to be later rather than sooner, then we must take a long, hard look at ourselves as biological specimens and gain some understanding of our limitations.
Desmond Morris

A rattlesnake loose in the living room tends to end all discussion of animal rights.
Lance Morrow

If you have to kill an animal, do it quickly and with skill, so that the animal suffers as little as possible. Do well everything you do!

Man is the cruelest animal. At tragedies, bullfights, and crucifixions he has so far felt best on earth; and when he invented hell for himself, behold, that was his heaven on earth.
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

But if we stop loving animals, aren't we bound to stop loving humans too?
Alexander Solzhenitsyn

The behavior of men to the lower animals, and their behavior to each other, bear a constant relationship.
Herbert Spencer

Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel. He is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it.
Mark Twain
The Damned Human Race.

Animals have these advantages over man: they never hear the clock strike, they die without any idea of death, they have no theologians to instruct them, their last moments are not disturbed by unwelcome and unpleasant ceremonies, their funerals cost them nothing, and no one starts lawsuits over their wills.
Voltaire (Francois Marie Arouet)

And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field.
The Bible
Genesis 2:19-20.

But ask the beasts, and they will teach you.
The Bible
Job 12:7.

Show kindness to animals also, as well as to all people. For as you treat all other created beings, so will you, in the long run, be treated.
Apocrypha, Text of The Twelve Fathers

Do not buy an animal, even a bird, until you have the food you will need for it. Do not eat until you have fed your animals. If an animal must be killed for food, see that it is done with as little pain and shock as possible. Never, unnecessarily kill or hurt an animal.
The Talmud

The trouble with loving is that pets don't last long enough and people last too long.
