"He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.
-- Immanuel Kant

* "One day the absurdity of the almost universal human belief in the slavery of other animals will be palpable. We shall then have discovered our souls and become worthier of sharing this planet with them."
-- Martin Luther King, Jr

Humanity's true moral test, its fundamental test, consists of its attitude toward those who are at tis mercy: animals. And in this respect, human kind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.
-- Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being

* "I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being."
-- Abraham Lincoln

Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction.
~Charles R. Magel

All beings seek for happiness; so let your compassion extend itself to all.
--Mahavamsa

I would look at a dog and when our eyes met, I realized that the dog and all creatures are my family. They're like you and me.
-- Ziggy Marley

I abhor vivisection. It should at least be curbed. Better, it should be abolished. I know of no achievement through vivisection, no scientific discovery, that could not have been obtained without such barbarism and cruelty. The whole thing is evil.
-- Charles Mayo (founder of the Mayo Clinic)

* The medical argument for animal testing doesn't stand up. Even if it did, I don't think we should kill other species. We think we're so much better; I'm not sure we are. I tell people, We've beaten into submission every animal on the face of the Earth, so we are the clear winners of whatever battle is going on between the species. Couldn't we be generous? I really do think it's time to get nice. No need to keep beating up on them. I think we've got to show that we're kind.
-- Paul McCartney

Cruelty is one fashion statement we can all do without.
~Rue McClanahan

* Care for all the animals they need our help
Care for all the children stop thinking of ourselves.
And if we work together to try for harmony
Someday we will live in peace

-- Country Joe McDonald

"I have always felt that the way we treat animals is a pretty good indicator of the compassion we are capable of for the human race."
-- Ali McGraw

* ...recognize and respect Earth’s beautiful systems of balance, between the presence of animals on land, the fish in the sea, birds in the air, mankind, water, air, and land. Most importantly there must always be awareness of the actions by people that can disturb this precious balance."
-- Margaret Mead

* The reasons for legal intervention in favour of children apply not less strongly to the case of those unfortunate slaves and victims of the most brutal part of mankind - the lower animals.
-- John Stuart Mill

"Teaching a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the child, as it is to the caterpillar."
-- Bradley Miller

* There are viable (and usually better) alternatives to the use of animals for food, sport, clothing, & experimentation. I beg you to discontinue any actions that might cause or condone animal torture, abuse, or destruction.
-- Moby

If you don't want to be beaten, imprisoned, mutilated, killed ot tortured, then you shouldn't condone such behaviour towards anyone, be they human or not.
-- Moby


If you look at the course of western history you'll see that we're slowly granting basic rights to everyone. A long time ago only kings had rights. Then rights were extended to property-owning white men. Then all men. Then women. Then children. Then the mentally retarded. Now we're agonizing over the extension of basic rights to homosexuals and animals. We need to finally accept that all sentient creatures are deserving of basic rights. I define basic rights as this --the ability to pursue life without having someone else's will involuntarily forced upon you. Or, as the framers of the constitution put it, the ability to have "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness". By what criteria can you justify denying basic rights to any living thing? Realize that by whatever criteria you employ someone could deny basic rights to you if they objected to your species, sexual preferences, color, religion, ideology etc. Would you eat your housecat, or force a mentally retarded child to ingest oven cleaner? If not, then why is it ok to eat cows and test products on sentient animals? I believe that to knowingly commit actions that cause or condone suffering is reprehensible in the extreme.I call upon you to be compassionate and treat others as you want to be treated. If you don't want to be beaten, imprisoned, mutilated, killed or tortured then you shouldn't condone such behavior towards anyone, be they human or not.
-- Moby

A good deed done to an animal is as meritorious as a good deed done to a human being, while an act of cruelty to an animal is a bad as an act of cruelty to a human being."
-- Prophet Mohammed

Behind every beautiful fur, there is a story. It is a bloody, barbaric story.
-- Mary Tyler Moore

A human being has been given an intellect to make choices, and we know there are other food sources that do not require the killing of a creature that would protest being killed.
-- Mary Tyler Moore
