Animals Quotes

Many times I am asked why the suffering of animals should call forth more sympathy from me than the suffering of human beings; why I work in this direction of charitable work more than toward any other. My answer is that because I believe that this work includes all the education and lines of reform which are needed to make a perfect circle of peace and goodwill about the Earth.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

All birds, even those of the same species are not alike, and it is the same with animals as with human beings. The reason Wakantanka does not make two birds, or two animals, or humans exactly alike is because each is placed here by Wakantanka to be an independent individuality and to rely on its self.

Shooter Teton Sioux

Man is an animal which, alone among the animals, refuses to be satisfied by the fulfilment of animal desires.

Alexander Graham Bell

To be nonviolent to human beings and to be a killer or enemy of the poor animals is Satan's philosophy. In this age there is always enmity against poor animals, and therefore the poor creatures are always anxious. The reaction of the poor animals is being forced on human society, and therefore there is always strain of cold or hot war between men, individually, collectively or nationally.

A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Various philosophers and religious leaders tried to convince their disciples and followers that animals are nothing more than machines without a soul, without feelings. However, anyone who has ever lived with an animal--be it a dog, a bird, or even a mouse--knows that this theory is a brazen lie, invented to justify cruelty.

Isaac Bashevis Singer

Those who, by their purchases, require animals to be killed have no right to be shielded from the slaughterhouse or any other aspect of the production of the meat they buy. If it is distasteful for humans to think about, what can it be like for the animals to experience it?

Peter Singer

There is no fundamental difference between man and the higher animals in their mental faculties... The lower animals, like man, manifestly feel pleasure and pain, happiness, and misery.

Charles Darwin

For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.


The dog has got more fun out of Man than Man has got out of the dog, for the clearly demonstrable reason that Man is the more laughable of the two animals

James Thurber

To say the you behaved like animals is offensive to the animal creation because animals of the farmyard and field have an innate sense of decency.

Justice Cusack

Animals behave in set patterns, which is why we are able to hunt and kill them. Only man has the capacity to consciously alter his behavior, to improvise and overcome the weight of routine and habit.

Robert Greene

Though our conduct seems so very different from that of the higher animals, the primary instincts are much alike in them and in us.

Albert Einstein

Indecency, vulgarity, obscenity- these are strictly confined to man; he invented them. Among the higher animals there is no trace of them.

Mark Twain

Man is the most intelligent of the animals - and the most silly.


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
