|For a good life: Work like a dog. Eat like a
horse. Think like a fox. And play like a rabbit.
We are certainly in a common class with the beasts; every action
of animal life is concerned with seeking bodily pleasure and
I gave my beauty and my youth to men. I am going to give my
wisdom and experience to animals.
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.
Man, unlike animals, has never learned that the sole purpose
in life is to enjoy it.
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
High office is like a pyramid; only two kinds of animals reach
the summit, reptiles and eagles.
Whenever you observe an animal closely, you feel as if a human
being sitting inside were making fun of you.
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
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.
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."
I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will
drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry
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.
A rattlesnake loose in the living room tends to end all discussion
of animal rights.
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
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
The behavior of men to the lower animals, and their behavior
to each other, bear a constant relationship.
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.
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.
But ask the beasts, and they will teach you.
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 trouble with loving is that pets don't last long enough
and people last too long.
