Animals Quotes

It is beyond doubt that the chief motive of Vegetarianism is the humane one. Questions of hygiene and of economy both play their part, and an important part, in a full discussion of food reform; but the feeling which underlies and animates the whole movement is the instinctive horror of butchery, especially the butchery of the more highly organized animals, so human, so near akin to man.

HENRY S. SALT

I eat everything that nature voluntarily gives: fruits, vegetables, and the products of plants. But I ask you to spare me what animals are forced to surrender: meat, milk, and cheese.

Anonymous

Truely man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs. We live by the death of others: we are burial places! I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look on the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.

Leonardo da Vinci

I am not a vegetarian because I love animals; I am a vegetarian because I hate plants.

A. Whitney Brown

Fork: An instrument used chiefly for the purpose of putting dead animals into the mouth.

Ambrose Bierce

The undisturbed coastal plain is home to a wide variety of plants and animals and is the only wilderness sanctuary in North America that protects a complete range of the arctic ecosystem.

Dan Lipinski

"Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life." "In God's wildness lies the hope of the world - the great fresh, unblighted, unredeemed wilderness." "I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in." "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves." "Wilderness is not only a haven for native plants and animals but it is also a refuge from society. Its a place to go to hear the wind and little else, see the stars and the galaxies, smell the pine trees, feel the cold water, touch the sky and the ground at the same time, listen to coyotes, eat the fresh snow, walk across the desert sands, and realize why its good to go outside of the city and the suburbs. Fortunately, there is wilderness just outside the limits of the cities and the suburbs in most of the United States, especially in the West."

John Muir

"The greatest wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more." "The flowers, the animals, the mountains, reflected the wisdom of his best hour, as much as they had delighted the simplicity of his childhood."

Ralph Waldo Emerson

All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.

George Orwell

I have learned a lot from trees; Sometimes about the weather, Sometimes about animals, Sometimes about the Great Spirits.

Tatanga Mani

Land, then, is not merely soil; it is a fountain of energy flowing through a circuit of soils, plants, and animals. Food chains are the living channels which conduct energy upward; death and decay return it to the soil. The circuit is not closed; some energy is dissipated in decay, some is added by absorption from the air, some is stored in soils, peats, and long-lived forests; but it is a sustained circuit, like a slowly augmented revolving fund of life.

Aldo Leopold

The earth's vegetation is part of a web of life in which there are intimate and essential relations between plants and the earth, between plants and other plants, between plants and animals. Sometimes we have no choice but to disturb these relationships, but we should do so thoughtfully, with full awareness that what we do may have consequences remote in time and place.

Rachel Carson†

Nothing ... nothing in the universe, is of any importance, or is authentic to any serious sense, except the illusions of romance. For man alone of animals plays the ape to his dreams. These axioms poor, deaf and blinded spendthrift! are none the less valuable for being quoted.

James Branch Cabell

I now know that anything sweet, really sweet, that I have was nothing that I planned. If you don't have kids and animals, you don't truly know what real life is about.

Sandra Bullock

Animals can also be hypnotised. Flip a rabbit on its back, hold it firmly in position with its head back for a couple of minutes, and youll find it will become perfectly motionless and unresponsive, until you clap your hands loudly above its head.

Derren Victor Brown

Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them... they are liable to spring upon you; but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight.

Orison Swett Marden

So much of political philosophy throughout history has consisted of concocting reasons why people have a duty to be tame animals in politicians cages.

James Bovard

Animals do not admire each other. A horse does not admire its companion.

Blaise Pascal

Man can acquire accomplishments or he can become an animal, whichever he wants. God makes the animals, man makes himself

Georg Christopher Lichtenberg

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.

Mark Twain

The difference between animals and humans is that animals change themselves for the environment, but humans change the environment for themselves.

Ayn Rand

It is much easier to show compassion to animals. They are never wicked.

Haile Selassie

There is nothing worse than an idle hour, with no occupation offering. People who have many such hours are simply animals waiting docilely for death. We all come to that state soon or late. It is the curse of senility

Barrie Sir James M

The desire to take medicine is perhaps the greatest feature which distinguishes man from animals.
