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."

Plutarch:

"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."
