The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated

Mahatma Gandhi

A country is known by the way it treats its animals.

Jawaharlal Nehru

For a great tree death comes as a gradual transformation. Its vitality ebbs slowly. Even when life has abandoned it entirely it remains a majestic thing. On some hilltop a dead tree may dominate the landscape for miles around. Alone among living things it retains its character and dignity after death. Plans wither; animals disintegrates. But a dead tree may be as arresting, as filled with personality, in death as it is in life. Even in its final moments, when the massive trunk lies prone and it has moldering into a ridge covered with mosses and fungi, it arrives at a fitting and noble end. It enriches and refreshes the earth. And later, as part of other green and growing things, it rises again.

Edwin Way Teale

God has given to Man an absolute right to take the lives of other animals, for any reasonable cause, such as the supply of food; but He has not given to Man the right to inflict pain, unless where necessary.

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson

We must protect the forests for our children, grandchildren and children yet to be born .We must protect the forests for those who can't speak for themselves such as the birds, animals, fish and trees.


The animals you eat are not those who devour others; you do not eat the carnivorous beasts, you take them as your pattern. You only hunger after sweet and gentle creatures who harm no one, which follow you, serve you, and are devoured by you as the reward of their service.

John Jacques Rousseau

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.


People often say that humans have always eaten animals, as if this is a justification for continuing the practice. According to this logic, we should not try to prevent people from murdering other people, since this has also been done since the earliest of times.

Isaac Bashevis Singer

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.


Even savage animals can agree among themselves.

Decimus Junius Juvenalis Juvenal

Human folk are as a matter of fact eager to find intelligence in animals.

Edward Thorndike

You can keep a dog; but it is the cat who keeps people, because cats find humans useful domestic animals

George Mikes

If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.
