Animals Quotes

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.

William Osler

Man is not like other animals in the ways that are really significant: animals have instincts, we have taxes.

Erving Goffman

I envy animals for two things - their ignorance of evil to come, and their ignorance of what is said about them.

Voltaire

There's no particular evidence that any of the lower mammals or any of the other animals have any interest in aesthetics at all. But Homo sapiens does, always has and always will.

Jock Sturges

Sculpture is more divine, and more like Nature, That fashions all her works in high relief, And that is Sculpture. This vast ball, the Earth, Was moulded out of clay, and baked in fire; Men, women, and all animals that breathe Are statues, and not paintings.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If we're not supposed to eat animals ... how come they're made out of meat?

Anonymous

In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people.

Ruth Harrison

The awful cruelty and terror to which tens of thousands of animals killed for human food are subjected in traveling long distances by ship and rail and road to the slaughterhouses of the world. God disapproves of all cruelty... whether to man or beast. The occupation of slaughtering animals is brutalising to those who are required to do the work.... I believe this matter is well worthy of the serious consideration of Christian leaders.

Mrs. Booth and General Bramwell Booth

Indecency, vulgarity, obscenity - these are strictly confined to man; he invented them. Among the higher animals there is no trace of them. They hide nothing. They are not ashamed.

Mark Twain
