Animal Related Quotes

Henry Spira (1927-1998):

"Animal liberation is also human liberation. Animal liberationists care about the quality of life for all. We recognize our kinship with all feeling beings. We identify with the powerless and the vulnerable – the victims, all those dominated, oppressed and exploited. And it is the non-human animals whose suffering is the most intense, widespread, expanding, systematic and socially sanctioned of all."


"But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of that proportion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy."

Paul Richard (1828-1896):

"Hunting... the least honourable form of war on the weak."

Lloyd Buggle Jr:

"Life is life's greatest gift. Guard the life of another creature as you would your own because it is your own. On life's scale of values, the smallest is no less precious to the creature that owns it than the largest."

John Austin Baker, Bishop of Salisbury (1928- )

"To shut your mind, heart, imagination to the sufferings of others is to begin slowly but inexorably to die. It is to cease by inches from being human, to become in the end capable of nothing, generous or unselfish – or sometimes capable of anything, however terrible."

Leonardo Da Vinci, artist, designer, inventor and scientist:

"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."

Dr Will Tuttle, author of The World Peace Diet:

"Plant-based foods taste better because we feel better eating them and contemplating their origins. Eating slowly, we enjoy contemplating the organic orchards and gardens that supply the vegetables, fruits and grains we are eating. We are grateful for the connection we feel with the earth, clouds, gardeners, and the seasons. In contrast, eating animal foods is often done quickly, without feeling deeply into the source of the food; for who would want to contemplate the utter hells that produce our factory-farmed meat?"

Jon Wynne-Tyson:

"If we examine what is done to animals in the fields of vivisection and diet alone, the figures are a shocking condemnation of our indifference to others’ right to life and wellbeing. Because animals lack a language we can understand, we listen only to our own thin excuses for treating them so abominably."

Theodor Adorno:

"Auschwitz begins wherever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks: they're only animals."

KFC (Kentucky Fried Cruelty)



Premarin is the most widely prescribed menopause drug and much cruelty is involved for it to be made and manufactured. Mares on PMU farms (pregnant mares urine) are crammed into stalls so small that they can't even turn around or lie down comfortably. Shortly after birth, their babies are taken away to be killed. At just a couple years old they are sold, most of the time to slaughter. Visit Menopause Online for alternatives. Besides, who would want to drink urine?


The Good News

There is PETA and the Animal Liberation Front saving animals lives every day, as well as numerous animal rights groups and the many people who support them.

The ALF liberated a monkey named Britches from a laboratory in 1985. His eyes were cruelly sewn shut as part of the experiment.

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Britches was the name given by researchers to a Stump-tailed Macaque monkey who was born into a breeding colony at the University of California, Riverside in March 1985. He was removed from his mother at birth and had his eyelids sewn shut as part of a three-year maternal- and sensory-deprivation study involving 24 infant monkeys. The study was conducted by David H. Warren.

Britches was removed from the laboratory, along with 700 other animals, when he was five weeks old during a raid on April 20, 1985 by the Animal Liberation Front (ALF). The ALF made a videotape of their raid and of Britches' condition when they found him. As a result of the publicity when the video was released by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and after condemnation of the experiments by scientists and the American Council of the Blind, eight of the 17 studies interrupted by the raid were not restarted, and the university stopped allowing baby monkeys' eyes to be sewn shut, according to reports filed by the university with the government. Dr. Grant Mack, president of the American Council of the Blind, called the experiment "one of the most repugnant and ill-conceived boondoggles that I've heard about for a long time."



There are so many veg*n foods out there, it's easy to make a vegetarian meal, dinner, snack, or beverage. Here are three simple and delicious recipes, a good source for many more is here.

Quick and Easy Mini-Cinnamon Rolls


2 cups flour (450 g)
1 tablespoon baking powder (15 g)
1 teaspoon salt (5 g)
6 tablespoons vegan margarine (90 g) -- I use Earth Balance
3/4 cup soy milk (0.2 liter)
2 tablespoons melted margarine (30 g)
1/4 cup Sucanat (60 g)
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon (15 g)
1 teaspoon margarine, softened (15 g)
1 cup vegan powdered sugar (225 g)
soy milk

Mix dry ingredients first, then cut in margarine.

Mix in soy milk until dough is soft (you may need slightly more or less to get the dough to a workable consistency). Do not over mix!

Roll dough to 0.25 inch thickness (0.5 cm) in a long rectangle -- about 8 inch by 16 inch (16cm x 32 cm). Using a pastry brush, coat the rectangle of dough with the melted margarine. Then spread the Sucanat and cinnamon over it.

Roll from the long end, forming a tight roll. Cut rolls about 1 inch (2 cm) thick. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 15 mins or until golden.

While rolls are baking, make icing by mixing margarine and powdered sugar. Slowly add soy milk to reach desired consistency. spread on rolls while they are still warm.

note: the rolls themselves are not sickeningly sweet, which makes for good contrast with the icing. compared to other cinnamon roll recipes, this one is extremely quick and easy, but still soft and tasty!

Serves: 16

Preparation time: 15 mins prep, 15 baking

Happy Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies


2 cups unbleached flour
2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp.salt
cinnamon to taste (optional)
vegan chocolate or carob chips - put in as many as you like
1 cup raw sugar (turbinado #1, sucanat works too but sucks up a lot of the moisture)
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup water


VERY IMPORTANT-make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. It will work if they're not at room temp but it works MUCH better if they are. Also while your oven is pre-heating put the cookie sheets you are going to use on top of the oven so they get preheated as well. Preheat oven to 350.

In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon (if you choose). Add chips. Make a well in the center and set aside.

In a medium size bowl mix vegan sugar and oil. Mix it well. Add the vanilla and then add the water. Mix it well. Add the wet to the well in the dry. Mix it well but be careful not to overwork it. Add more chips if you need to. Spoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Put them in the oven. Bake for 5 minutes and then flip and rotate the sheets.(top to bottom,and 180 degree rotation) Bake another 4 minutes and check them.

The cookies are done when they seem a little bit softer then you want them to be. They will harden up some as they cool. I usually go in two minute increments from here untill they get to where I like them.

Take them out when they are done and move them to wire cooling racks. If they split or come apart when you try to remove them let them sit on the pan for 2 minutes before transferring them to the racks.

Serves: almost two dozen

Preparation time: 15 mins?-10 to 12 cooking time

Black Bean and Corn Wraps


Black beans, one can
Corn, one can
Tortilla shells, 6 diameter
Salsa or picante sauce
Spices: garlic powder, chili powder, marjoram, ground cumin
Toppings: lettuce, chopped tomatoes, soy cheese


Rinse and drain black beans thoroughly. Drain corn. Mix both in saucepan with approximately 1/2 cup of salsa (more or less depending on how big your cans of beans and corn are). Heat over medium-low burner, stirring frequently. Add more salsa if mixture becomes too dry. Add spices to taste. Cook until hot through and flavours have had some time to combine. To serve: fill warmed tortilla shells with bean and corn mixture and toppings.

Note on serving sizes: this varies with how large the cans of beans and corn are. I'm thinking along the lines of light-lunch size servings. This is a good recipe for making more than you need and having leftovers, because the flavours blend nicely when it sits in the fridge overnight.

Serves: 2-4

Preparation time: 20-30 minutes
