People speak sometimes about the "bestial" cruelty of man, but that is terribly unjust and offensive to beasts, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel.

Ellen DeGeneres

Our perfect companions never have fewer than four feet.

Colette


If you want to test cosmetics, why do it on some poor animal who hasn't done anything? They should use prisoners who have been convicted of murder or rape instead. So, rather than seeing if perfume irritates a bunny rabbit's eyes, they should throw it in Charles Manson's eyes and ask him if it hurts.

Ellen DeGeneres , My Point... And I Do Have One


Animals quote - Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.

A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.

Leo Tolstoy

The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.

Arthur Schopenhauer , The Basis of Morality


Animals quote - Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.

The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men.

Alice Walker In Search of our Mothers' Gardens Womanist Prose


Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day.
It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.

John Grogan

I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.

Animals quote - You think those dogs will not be in heaven! I tell you they will be there long before any of us.
You think those dogs will not be in heaven! I tell you they will be there long before any of us.

Robert Louis Stevenson Lloyd Osbourne


Man is the Reasoning Animal. Such is the claim. I think it is open to dispute. Indeed, my experiments have proven to me that he is the Unreasoning Animal... In truth, man is incurably foolish. Simple things which other animals easily learn, he is incapable of learning. Among my experiments was this. In an hour I taught a cat and a dog to be friends. I put them in a cage. In another hour I taught them to be friends with a rabbit. In the course of two days I was able to add a fox, a goose, a squirrel and some doves. Finally a monkey. They lived together in peace; even affectionately.
Next, in another cage I confined an Irish Catholic from Tipperary, and as soon as he seemed tame I added a Scotch Presbyterian from Aberdeen. Next a Turk from Constantinople; a Greek Christian from Crete; an Armenian; a Methodist from the wilds of Arkansas; a Buddhist from China; a Brahman from Benares. Finally, a Salvation Army Colonel from Wapping. Then I stayed away for two whole days. When I came back to note results, the cage of Higher Animals was all right, but in the other there was but a chaos of gory odds and ends of turbans and fezzes and plaids and bones and flesh--not a specimen left alive. These Reasoning Animals had disagreed on a theological detail and carried the matter to a Higher Court.

Mark Twain , Писма от Земята / Автобиография

If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience.

Woodrow Wilson

Petting, scratching, and cuddling a dog could be as soothing to the mind and heart as deep meditation and almost as good for the soul as prayer.

Dean Koontz , False Memory


I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain’d, I stand and look at them long and long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition, They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins, They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God, Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things, Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago, Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.

Walt Whitman , Leaves of Grass


You know, sometimes the world seems like a pretty mean place.'
'That's why animals are so soft and huggy.

If you don't own a dog, at least one, there is not necessarily anything wrong with you, but there may be something wrong with your life.

Roger Caras

Linda McCartney , Linda's Kitchen: Simple and Inspiring Recipes for Meals Without Meat


Perhaps in the back of our minds we already understand, without all the science I've discussed, that something terribly wrong is happening. Our sustenance now comes from misery. We know that if someone offers to show us a film on how our meat is produced, it will be a horror film. We perhaps know more than we care to admit, keeping it down in the dark places of our memory-- disavowed. When we eat factory-farmed meat we live, literally, on tortured flesh. Increasingly, that tortured flesh is becoming our own.

Jonathan Safran Foer , Eating Animals

Dogs do not have many advantages over people, but one of them is extremely important: euthanasia is not forbidden by law in their case; animals have the right to a merciful death.

Milan Kundera , The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The dog is the most faithful of animals and would be much esteemed were it not so common. Our Lord God has made His greatest gifts the commonest.

Charles Bukowski , The Last Night of the Earth Poems


I made the choice to be vegan because I will not eat (or wear, or use) anything that could have an emotional response to its death or captivity. I can well imagine what that must feel like for our non-human friends - the fear, the terror, the pain - and I will not cause such suffering to a fellow living being.

Rai Aren


She sighed, annoyed at her restlessness. So, she said, disrupting Wolf in another backward glance.
Who would win in a fight—you or a pack of wolves?
He frowned at her, all seriousness. Depends, he said, slowly, like he was trying to figure out her motive for asking. How big is the pack?
I don’t know, what’s normal? Six?
I could win against six, he said. Any more than that and it could be a close call.
Scarlet smirked. You’re not in danger of low self-esteem, at least.
What do you mean?
Nothing at all. She kicked a stone from their path. How about you and … a lion?
A cat? Don’t insult me.
She laughed, the sound sharp and surprising. How about a bear?
Why, do you see one out there?
Not yet, but I want to be prepared in case I have to rescue you.
The smile she’d been waiting for warmed his face, a glint of white teeth flashing. I’m not sure. I’ve never had to fight a bear before.

Marissa Meyer

Hippolyte Taine


Animals quote - People would rather believe than know.
People would rather believe than know.

Edward O. Wilson


We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace.

Albert Schweitzer
