Animal Cruelty quotes by Francesca Lia Block
#1. You always fed strays and bent down to talk to the dogs you met on the street, looking straight into their eyes as if they were old friends. (Maybe they are, you said. From another life.) You liked to go to the pound and look at them. You tried to send them messages of comfort. I couldn't go because I started crying the one time I tried. All those eyes and the barks like sobs. #Quote by Francesca Lia Block
Animal Cruelty quotes by Ali MacGraw
#2. Cruelty to animals can become violence to humans. #Quote by Ali MacGraw
Animal Cruelty quotes by Shenita Etwaroo
#3. Here's an assignment for my fellow Christians: Go to YouTube, search for any video of 'slaughterhouse animal cruelty', watch it, the whole thing, and ask yourself if that's what God meant when He gave us dominion over animals."
-Shenita Etwaroo #Quote by Shenita Etwaroo
Animal Cruelty quotes by Janice Anderson
#4. Embrace compassion without exception. #Quote by Janice Anderson
Animal Cruelty quotes by Albert Einstein
#5. The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Animal Cruelty quotes by Bo Derek
#6. Laws exist in every state that make animal cruelty a crime. Horse slaughter is simply another form of animal abuse. #Quote by Bo Derek
Animal Cruelty quotes by Lawrence Anthony
#7. I again flourished my papers: "Here're my credentials from the Coalition Administration."
The American scrutinized the papers, shook his head in amazement, and smiled. "A South African," he said. "You're sure a long way from home." He radioed through for instructions and indicated that I should bring my hired car up to the side of the roadblock and wait. #Quote by Lawrence Anthony
Animal Cruelty quotes by Cesar Chavez
#8. Kindness and compassion towards all living things is a mark of a civilized society. Conversely, cruelty, whether it is directed against human beings or against animals, is not the exclusive province of any one culture or community of people. #Quote by Cesar Chavez
Animal Cruelty quotes by Melanie Joy
#9. Bearing witness takes the courage to realize the potential of the human spirit. Witnessing requires us to call forth the highest qualities of our species, qualities such as conviction, integrity, empathy, and compassion. It is easier by far to retain the attributes of carnistic culture: apathy, complacency, self-interest, and "blissful" ignorance. I wrote this book––itself an act of witnessing––because I believe that, as humans, we have a fundamental desire to strive to become our best selves. I believe that each and every one of us has the capacity to act as powerful witnesses in a world very much in need. I have had the opportunity to interact with thousands of individuals through my work as a teacher, author, and speaker, and through my personal life. I have witnessed, again and again, the courage and compassion of the so-called average American: previously apathetic students who become impassioned activists; lifelong carnists who weep openly when exposed to images of animal cruelty, never again to eat meat; butchers who suddenly connect meat to its living source and become unable to continue killing animals; and a community of carnists who aid a runaway cow in her flight from slaughter.

Ultimately, bearing witness requires the courage to take sides. In the face of mass violence, we will inevitably fall into a role: victim or perpetrator. Judith Herman argues that all bystanders are forced to take a side, by their action or inaction, and that their is no such t #Quote by Melanie Joy
Animal Cruelty quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#10. Scientific studies and government records suggest that virtually all (upwards of 95 percent of) chickens become infected with E. coli (an indicator of fecal contamination) and between 39 and 75 percent of chickens in retail stores are still infected. Around 8 percent of birds become infected with salmonella (down from several years ago, when at least one in four birds was infected, which still occurs on some farms). Seventy to 90 percent are infected with another potentially deadly pathogen, campylobacter. Chlorine baths are commonly used to remove slime, odor, and bacteria.

Of course, consumers might notice that their chickens don't taste quite right - how good could a drug-stuffed, disease-ridden, shit-contaminated animal possibly taste? - but the birds will be injected (or otherwise pumped up) with "broths" and salty solutions to give them what we have come to think of as the chicken look, smell, and taste. (A recent study by Consumer Reports found that chicken and turkey products, many labeled as natural, "ballooned with 10 to 30 percent of their weight as broth, flavoring, or water. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Animal Cruelty quotes by Jon Evans
#11. Vivisection is wrong because it is an abuse of man's power over the helpless, involving pain and suffering. The name for this is cruelty, and cruelty is immoral, no matter what the reason for its introduction. #Quote by Jon Evans
Animal Cruelty quotes by Shivanshu K. Srivastava
#12. Just like an actor's name sinks into oblivion when people stop watching his films, if we refuse to engage in any form of animal cruelty then these inhumane things can't survive long. #Quote by Shivanshu K. Srivastava
Animal Cruelty quotes by Temple Grandin
#13. I believe that the place where an animal dies is a sacred one. There is a need to bring ritual into the conventional slaughter plants and use as a means to shape people's behavior. It would help prevent people from becoming numbed, callous, or cruel. The ritual could be something very simple, such as a moment of silence. In addition to developing better designs and making equipment to insure the humane treatments of all animals, that would be my contribution. #Quote by Temple Grandin
Animal Cruelty quotes by Debasish Mridha
#14. Unnecessary violence against animals is a heinous crime. Be a voice for those who do not have one. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Animal Cruelty quotes by Lawrence Anthony
#15. People will say we're being a little bit anthropomorphic?' I remembered Brendan's use of the word - 'human-like'.

'Anyone who doesn't believe that animals are aware that they have family and friends, and care about them, must also be a paid-up member of the Flat Earth Society, or still think the sun revolves around the earth,' replied Dylan disdainfully. 'I mean, how switched off can you be? How can anyone still believe animals don't have emotions? They're alive and emotions are a response to life. I've seen warthogs that are more intelligent and more responsible than some people I know. Not to say better parents. #Quote by Lawrence Anthony
Animal Cruelty quotes by Cesar Chavez
#16. I became a vegetarian after realizing that animals feel afraid, cold, hungry and unhappy like we do. I feel very deeply about vegetarianism and the animal kingdom. It was my dog Boycott who led me to question the right of humans to eat other sentient beings. #Quote by Cesar Chavez
Animal Cruelty quotes by Alexis Carrel
#17. Scientific civilisation has destroyed the soul of the world. #Quote by Alexis Carrel
Animal Cruelty quotes by Mark Bittman
#18. If price spikes don't change eating habits, perhaps the combination of deforestation, pollution, climate change, starvation, heart disease and animal cruelty will gradually encourage the simple daily act of eating more plants and fewer animals. #Quote by Mark Bittman
Animal Cruelty quotes by Jon Wynne-Tyson
#19. The only argument against vivisection that will be seen to have lasting power - that we do not improve human society by means that debase human character. #Quote by Jon Wynne-Tyson
Animal Cruelty quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#20. For an animal to attack you, you must smell or look either dangerous, or delicious, or at least nutritious. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Animal Cruelty quotes by Michael Chabon
#21. You would never do anything like that, would you?" my wife asked him. "You would never hurt animals."
Our son shook his head, looking offended by the question. He might have been lying, but my knowledge of his belief system, composed of equal parts off-kilter Far Side animal-centrism and a dark Captain Nemoesque contempt for humanity, inclined me to think he was telling the truth. Gigantic fish pulling the limbs from cruel little boys, that might be something you could get him to sign on for. #Quote by Michael Chabon
Animal Cruelty quotes by Marianne Moore
#22. If we can't be cordial to these creatures' fleece, I think that we deserve to freeze. #Quote by Marianne Moore
Animal Cruelty quotes by Keisha Keenleyside
#24. Tom watched with his arms folded as the life that had been within Kobe died out, and the fire continued. #Quote by Keisha Keenleyside
Animal Cruelty quotes by Ingrid Newkirk
#25. Since we can't count on the meat, egg, and dairy industries to protect animals from the most egregious forms of cruelty, what can we, as consumers, do? Opting out of paying someone to allow animals to die in a barn fire or at the slaughterhouse seems pretty reasonable. #Quote by Ingrid Newkirk
Animal Cruelty quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#26. I want to find a way of speaking to fellow human beings that will be cool rather than heated, philosophical rather than polemical, that will bring enlightenment rather than seeking to divide us into the righteous and the sinners, the saved and the damned, the sheep and the goats. #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Animal Cruelty quotes by Cleveland Amory
#27. The people that set one animal against another haven't the guts to be bullies themselves. They're just secondhand cowards. #Quote by Cleveland Amory
Animal Cruelty quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#28. Let me say it openly: we are surrounded by an enterprise of degradation, cruelty, and killing which rivals anything that the Third Reich was capable of, indeed dwarfs it, in that ours is an enterprise without end, self-regenerating, bringing rabbits, rats, poultry, livestock ceaselessly into the world for the purpose of killing them. #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Animal Cruelty quotes by Agnes Ryan
#29. Wars will never cease while men still kill other animals for food, for to turn any living creature into a roast, a steak, a chop, or any other type of 'meat' takes the same kind of violence, the same kind of bloodshed, and the same kind of mental processes required to change a living man into a dead soldier. #Quote by Agnes Ryan
Animal Cruelty quotes by Jadi Kindred
#30. Who knows what the long-term effects of saving rescue dogs are and the healing lessons and love they bring to Earth? Each one of us has the capacity to influence hundreds - even thousands of people or animals through the way we live our lives. #Quote by Jadi Kindred
Animal Cruelty quotes by Lawrence Anthony
#31. The Americans were understandably on hair triggers. There was a good reason for all of this security. For despite TV images of quick victory, much of Baghdad certainly had not fallen and firefights with die-hard Ba'athists loyal to Saddam Hussein were raging all over the city. #Quote by Lawrence Anthony
Animal Cruelty quotes by C.S. Lewis
#32. In justifying cruelty to animals we put ourselves also on the animal level. We choose the jungle and must abide by our choice. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Animal Cruelty quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#33. It shouldn't be the consumer's responsibility to figure out what's cruel and what's kind, what's environmentally destructive and what's sustainable. Cruel and destructive food products should be illegal. We don't need the option of buying children's toys made with lead paint, or aerosols with chlorofluorocarbons, or medicines with unlabeled side effects. And we don't need the option of buying factory-farmed animals. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Animal Cruelty quotes by Evan Baldonado
#34. Meat may taste good, but the guilt of eating it tastes far worse. #Quote by Evan Baldonado
Animal Cruelty quotes by Terri Irwin
#35. On trial were two men, one in a plaid shirt, and the other with a long, ZZ Top-style beard. They looked intimated by the crowd that had turned out, even though Plaid Shirt stood six foot four. He was the main perpetrator, charged with animal cruelty. He had brought his young son along during the bear killing for which he was on trial.
The main reason the state managed to bring charges is that the hunters had made a videotape of their gruesome acts. The state trooper who confiscated the video couldn't even testify at the time of the trial, he was so emotionally overcome.
Then they showed the video in court, and I understood why. ZZ Top and Plaid Shirt cornered the bear cub. In order to preserve the integrity of the pelt, they attempted to kill the cub by stabbing it in the eyes.
It was absolutely gut-wrenching to watch. The bear struggled for its life, but Plaid Shirt kept thrusting his knife, moving back as the animal twisted frantically away, then moving forward to stab again. The bear cub screamed, and it sounded eerily as though the bear was actually crying "Mama," over and over. Plaid Shirt and ZZ Top sat unfazed in court. The bear screamed, "Mama, mama, mama." From my place in the gallery, I watched as a towering man in a police uniform burst into tears and walked out of the courtroom. At the end of the video, Plaid Shirt brought his nine-year-old son over to stand triumphantly next to the dead bear cub.
"Clearly, you deserve jail," the judge told Pla #Quote by Terri Irwin
Animal Cruelty quotes by John Cowper Powys
#36. Let none count themselves wise who have not with the nerves of their imagination felt the pain of the vivisected. #Quote by John Cowper Powys
Animal Cruelty quotes by Theodor W. Adorno
#37. Auschwitz begins wherever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks: they're only animals. #Quote by Theodor W. Adorno
Animal Cruelty quotes by Sigrid Agenäs
#38. Organic production has a particular challenge since the ideology of organic production and the expectations from consumers include that the food is produced in a natural way and it is very difficult to argue that it is natural for a new-born mammal to be separated from its mother at birth. #Quote by Sigrid Agenäs
Animal Cruelty quotes by James Stewart
#39. Animals give me more pleasure through the viewfinder of a camera than they ever did in the crosshairs of a gunsight. #Quote by James Stewart
Animal Cruelty quotes by Cesar Chavez
#40. We know we cannot be kind to animals until we stop exploiting them
exploiting animals in the name of science, exploiting animals in the name of sport, exploiting animals in the name of fashion, and yes, exploiting animals in the name of food. #Quote by Cesar Chavez
Animal Cruelty quotes by Michael Pollan
#41. This for many people is what is most offensive about hunting - to some, disgusting: that it encourages, or allows, us not only to kill but to take a certain pleasure in killing. It's not as though the rest of us don't countenance the killing of tens of millions of animals every year. Yet for some reason we feel more comfortable with the mechanical killing practiced, out of view and without emotion by industrial agriculture. #Quote by Michael Pollan
Animal Cruelty quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#42. Men feel that cruelty to the poor is a kind of cruelty to animals. They never feel that it is an injustice to equals; nay it is treachery to comrades. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Animal Cruelty quotes by Richelle Mead
#43. Lissa knelt down, compassion on her face. I wasn't surprised, since she'd always had a thing for animals. She'd lectured me for days after I'd instigated the infamous hamster-and-hermit-crab fight. I'd viewed the fight as a testing of worthy opponents. She'd seen it as animal cruelty. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Animal Cruelty quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#44. Indeed, people speak sometimes about the 'animal' cruelty of man, but that is terribly unjust and offensive to animals, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel. A tiger simply gnaws and tears, that is all he can do. It would never occur to him to nail people by their ears overnight, even if he were able to do it. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Animal Cruelty quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#45. You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Animal Cruelty quotes by Sandra Dallas
#46. She wasn't soft, but she never saw the sense of a living thing dying such a cruel death just for some woman's vanity. Still, she thought, a fur coat when the wind blew down off the Tenmile Range would feel mighty good. Maybe they made fur coats out of foxes that died of old age. #Quote by Sandra Dallas
Animal Cruelty quotes by James Cromwell
#47. The health of the planet is at stake, because the cruelty and the waste that accompanies the slaughter of billions of animals each year literally infects us all. We could consume healthy plant-based food produced at almost infinitely less cost. What does that say, really, about us and what we're doing ... to animals and to ourselves? #Quote by James Cromwell
Animal Cruelty quotes by Ingrid Newkirk
#48. More power to [Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty] if they can get someone's attention. #Quote by Ingrid Newkirk
Animal Cruelty quotes by Hannah Harrington
#49. Listening to Eminem makes me feel like a badass. Or at least as though I have the potential for badassery. I mean, the way he sings, it's like he'd probably punch out a puppy if it looked at him wrong. Obviously I'm not glorifying animal cruelty here, I'm just saying, I could use some of that attitude. #Quote by Hannah Harrington
Animal Cruelty quotes by Jack London
#50. Beauty Smith was cruel in the way that cowards are cruel…he revenged himself, in turn, upon creatures weaker than he. All life likes power, and Beauty Smith was no exception. Denied the expression of power amongst his own kind, he fell back upon the lesser creatures and there vindicated the life that was in him. #Quote by Jack London
Animal Cruelty quotes by Michael Tobias
#51. I remember one bobcat they had in here - now bobcats are an endangered species in this neck of the woods - they'd caught it somewhere and they must have put that cat through a dozen rounds of burn experiments before they finally determined that it was utterly useless to them. Like an empty beer can. And then you know what they did to it? Claudius was late for a lunch date so rather thanput the destroyed but still breathing animal to sleep, he picked it up by its hind legs and simply smashed its head against a wall repeatedly until it was dead. How can I forget it: I was the one told to clean up the mess. The head dented in. The eyes slowly closing. The once proud claws hanging down, stunned and lifeless, the utter senselessness of it all, and the hate, a hatred that was consummated in me which is as dangerous a hormone, or chemical, or portion of the brain, as any neutron bomb. Except that I didnt know how to explode. I was like a computer without a keyboard, a bird without wings. Roaring inside. I wanted to kill that man. To do unto others what they had done unto me. I was that bobcat, you better believe it. #Quote by Michael Tobias
Animal Cruelty quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#52. Human beings are important only to the survival of the human race. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Animal Cruelty quotes by Mimi Bekhechi
#53. It's hard to imagine calling the dairy industry anything but "inhumane" when you consider that on dairy farms, cows are artificially inseminated and forced to give birth, only to have their beloved babies torn away from them so the milk that nature intended for them can instead be consumed by humans. Both mother cows and their calves are emotionally traumatised when forcibly separated from one another. The mother cows bellow in desperation, and their calves bawl in distress. They cry out for each other for days – in vain.

The male calves – often referred to as "by-products" – are either shot at birth or destined to become veal. The female calves, like their mothers, face a lifetime of repeated forcible impregnation and anguish over their stolen babies. Their bodies are strained to the limit in order to squeeze out every last drop of milk. Today, British cows typically produce 10 times more milk than they would naturally in order to feed their calves. #Quote by Mimi Bekhechi
Animal Cruelty quotes by George Saunders
#54. You were torturing a cat," she says. "With a freaking prod."
"A prod I built myself in metal shop," he says. "But of course you never mention that. #Quote by George Saunders
Animal Cruelty quotes by John Galsworthy
#55. Once admit that we have the right to inflict unnecessary suffering and you destroy the very basis of human society. #Quote by John Galsworthy
Animal Cruelty quotes by Cesar Chavez
#56. We need, in a special way, to work twice as hard to help people understand that the animals are fellow creatures, that we must protect them and love them as we love ourselves. #Quote by Cesar Chavez
Animal Cruelty quotes by Jon Wynne-Tyson
#57. The case against vivisection is the same as that against war and all other forms of cruelty - that violence does not produce long-term solutions. #Quote by Jon Wynne-Tyson
Animal Cruelty quotes by Cesar Chavez
#58. Only when we have become nonviolent towards all life will we have learned to live well with others. #Quote by Cesar Chavez
Animal Cruelty quotes by Dan Wells
#59. What really got to me was not the fact that animal cruelty could predict violent behavior - it's that up until I read about it, I never thought that it was wrong. I was killing animals and taking them apart, and I had all the emotional reaction of a kid playing with Legos. It's like they weren't real to m - they were just toys to play with. Things. #Quote by Dan Wells
Animal Cruelty quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#60. Some animals would be offended if they were treated like some people. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Animal Cruelty quotes by Alicia Silverstone
#61. It's so simple to create a delicious holiday meal without animal cruelty. I promise no one will miss the turkey! #Quote by Alicia Silverstone
Animal Cruelty quotes by Dan Wells
#62. Have you heard about the MacDonald triad?" "Three traits shared by ninety-five percent of serial killers," said Dr. Neblin. "Bed-wetting, pyromania, and animal cruelty. You do, I admit, have all three. #Quote by Dan Wells
Animal Cruelty quotes by Debasish Mridha
#63. Life is as precious to us as it is for an animal. An animal is as loving, caring, and kind to her children as we are. She might not be able to tell us but she can express it through her eyes and expressions. She feels joy and happiness. She is helpless in our cruel hands and vulnerable to our vicious greed. Let us be kind to animals. Let us learn to feel their pain. Can we kill a helpless baby to feed our greed? Then how can we kill helpless animal friends that can't talk? Often we kill just for fun. How funny would it be if an animal killed a human just for fun? Let us be kind to animals as much as possible. I know we can. It is easier to love an animal than a human being. If you love an animal, it will rarely hurt you. Let us practice kindness and compassion to animals so that we may create a peaceful world. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Animal Cruelty quotes by Louis J. Camuti
#65. Never believe that animals suffer less than humans. Pain is the same for them that it is for us. Even worse, because they cannot help themselves. #Quote by Louis J. Camuti
Animal Cruelty quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#66. This isn't animal experimentation, where you an imagine some proportionate good at the other end of the suffering. This is what we feel like eating. Tell me something: Why is taste, the crudest of our sense, exempted from the ethical rules that govern our other sense? If you stop and think about it, it's crazy. Why doesn't a horny person has as strong a claim to raping an animal as a hungry one does to killing and eating it? #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Animal Cruelty quotes by Zeena Schreck
#67. It should be noted, as with so many legends and popularly accepted truths created out of political motivation: There, in fact, is no evidence that the hundreds of murders historically attributed to the werewolves of Gévaudan were actually caused by wolves. As with all witchhunts, the endless battle against ignorance requires one to always keep an open mind and sharp wits when considering such rumors - especially the rumors we choose to enjoy. #Quote by Zeena Schreck
Animal Cruelty quotes by Mark Twain
#68. Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel. He is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it. #Quote by Mark Twain
Animal Cruelty quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#69. A suffering or tortured animal always filled her with such a surge of sympathy that it lifted her clean out of herself. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Animal Cruelty quotes by Nathan Runkle
#70. Stay positive, joyful, and optimistic in your activism, even in the face of adversity. Understand that most people continue to consume animal products because they are unaware of the hidden cost - animal cruelty - not because they are bad or apathetic. Offer information, support, and resources in a friendly and supportive manner, as few people have begun their journey toward a compassionate lifestyle by being shamed or ridiculed. Turn anger and frustration into motivation to be as effective as possible. #Quote by Nathan Runkle
Animal Cruelty quotes by Martin Blais
#71. What you have to say matters! Post anything about why you chose veganism using the hastag #2Bvegan4 (to be vegan for). #Quote by Martin Blais
Animal Cruelty quotes by Russell Boyd
#72. Tolerance of Cruelty in any form is a degraded state of mind and soul. When we freely allow the massacre and prolonged torture of defenseless creatures, it increases our receptivity to human cruelty and war and steals our humanity, peace and soul. Very little speeds and greases your way to Hell, like animal cruelty. #Quote by Russell Boyd
Animal Cruelty quotes by Christian Morgenstern
#73. If modern civilised man had to keep the animals he eats, the number of vegetarians would rise astronomically. #Quote by Christian Morgenstern
Animal Cruelty quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#74. Poor Buttercup was not in a very good mood; for she had been lately bereft of her calf, and mourned for the little thing most dismally. Just now she regarded all mankind as her enemies (and I do not blame her), so when the matadore came prancing towards her with the red handkerchief flying at the end of his long lance, she threw up her head, and gave a most appropriate "Moo!". #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Animal Cruelty quotes by George Thorndike Angell
#75. I am sometimes asked, 'Why do you spend so much of your time and money talking about kindness to animals when there is so much cruelty to men?' I answer: 'I am working at the roots.' #Quote by George Thorndike Angell
Animal Cruelty quotes by Rosie Malezer
#76. It's ironic that it was not until I lost my hearing that I finally found my voice. Sign language saved my soul. #Quote by Rosie Malezer
Animal Cruelty quotes by Jennifer Probst
#77. Odd choice of a word, isn't it? Fish is either singular, or plural. Imagine my surprise when I walked in the study and found not one fish in a tiny fish bowl, but an entire aquarium."
She practically vibrated for the need to fight. "Otto was lonely and you were practicing animal cruelty. He was too isolated. Now, he has friends and a place to swim."
"Yes, nice little tunnels and rocks and algae to play hide and seek with his buddies. #Quote by Jennifer Probst
Animal Cruelty quotes by Carolyn Kizer
#78. from "Semele Recycled"

But then your great voice rang out under the skies
my name!-- and all those private names
for the parts and places that had loved you best.
And they stirred in their nest of hay and dung.
The distraught old ladies chasing their lost altar,
and the seers pursuing my skull, their lost employment,
and the tumbling boys, who wanted the magic marbles,
and the runaway groom, and the fisherman's thirteen children,
set up such a clamor, with their cries of "Miracle!"
that our two bodies met like a thunderclap
in midday-- right at the corner of that wretched field
with its broken fenceposts and startled, skinny cattle.
We fell in a heap on the compost heap
and all our loving parts made love at once,
while the bystanders cheered and prayed and hid their eyes
and then went decently about their business.

And here is is, moonlight again; we've bathed in the river
and are sweet and wholesome once more.
We kneel side by side in the sand;
we worship each other in whispers.
But the inner parts remember fermenting hay,
the comfortable odor of dung, the animal incense,
and passion, its bloody labor,
its birth and rebirth and decay. #Quote by Carolyn Kizer
Animal Cruelty quotes by Martin Garrix
#79. It's a weird sound [ "Animals"] inspired by a hip hop drum loop. I listen to a lot of hip hop tracks and it's not used quite often in House currently. I chopped up the loop and edited it so you wouldn't recognize the original. #Quote by Martin Garrix
Animal Cruelty quotes by Emma Goldman
#80. John Burroughs has stated that experimental study of animals in captivity is absolutely useless. Their character, their habits, their appetites undergo a complete transformation when torn from their soil in field and forest. With human nature caged in a narrow space, whipped daily into submission, how can we speak of its potentialities? #Quote by Emma Goldman
Animal Cruelty quotes by Eric Nies
#81. Eating a RAW food lifestyle is the purest and best way to live. Many of the strongest and longest living animals are raw, such as the panda bear and gorillas. Self love has brought me to a RAW lifestyle. Feeding my body with pure natural energy. Most people's perception is what has been ingrained inside them by manipulation, but slowly there is a shift in consciousness, one person at a time. People will ask more questions, begin to stand up for themselves, go their "own way", take better care of themselves, which will benefit everyone and everything around them. #Quote by Eric Nies
Animal Cruelty quotes by Adolf Hitler
#82. Struggle is the father of all things. It is not by the principles of humanity that man lives or is able to preserve himself above the animal world, but solely by means of the most brutal struggle. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Animal Cruelty quotes by Jared Taylor
#83. Many kinds of animal behavior can be explained by genetic similarity theory. Animals have a preference for close kin, and study after study has shown that they have a remarkable ability to tell kin from strangers. Frogs lay eggs in bunches, but they can be separated and left to hatch individually. When tadpoles are then put into a tank, brothers and sisters somehow recognize each other and cluster together rather than mix with tadpoles from different mothers.
Female Belding's ground squirrels may mate with more than one male before they give birth, so a litter can be a mix of full siblings and half siblings. Like tadpoles, they can tell each other apart. Full siblings cooperate more with each other than with half-siblings, fight less, and are less likely to run each other out of the territory when they grow up.
Even bees know who their relatives are. In one experiment, bees were bred for 14 different degrees of relatedness - sisters, cousins, second cousins, etc. - to bees in a particular hive. When the bees were then released near the hive, guard bees had to decide which ones to let in. They distinguished between degrees of kinship with almost perfect accuracy, letting in the closest relatives and chasing away more distant kin. The correlation between relatedness and likelihood of being admitted was a remarkable 0.93.
Ants are famous for cooperation and willingness to sacrifice for the colony. This is due to a quirk in ant reproduction that means worker ants a #Quote by Jared Taylor
Animal Cruelty quotes by Libba Bray
#84. But forgiveness ... I'll hold on to that fragile slice of hope and keep it close, remembering that in each of us lie good and bad, light and dark, art and pain, choice and regret, cruelty and sacrifice. #Quote by Libba Bray
Animal Cruelty quotes by Suzy Kassem
#85. Study the behavior of animals and you will understand human psychology and sociology. Study a flower excited under sunlight, and you will understand how all living things respond to light. The Almighty has provided everything in nature. Observe nature and you will grow. The cures of all illnesses are found in nature in the shapes of the body parts they were created to cure. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Animal Cruelty quotes by Annalee Newitz
#86. Amphibians are dying out like crazy, and frogs and salamanders may be largely extinct by the end of the twenty-first century. Imagine an animal that begins its life in the water, but ends it on land - already, that's pretty weird. But, also, a lot of them are incredibly tiny and look wildly improbable. They have funny little toes, they stretch their throats into weird bubble shapes when they croak, and some of them are poisonous to the touch. I think kids from the twenty-second century might mythologize amphibians the way kids today mythologize dinosaurs. #Quote by Annalee Newitz
Animal Cruelty quotes by David Estes
#87. You made friends with a prickler?" Hawk says, standing just inside the secret opening, apparently having come inside during my story, "I'm confused," Adele says. "At first I thought pricklers were some kind of plant, but are they an animal? Or some weird kind of person?"
"We ate your friend" Tristan says, his handsome face screwed up even more. #Quote by David Estes
Animal Cruelty quotes by Carroll Shelby
#88. I love raising animals. I look at animals as more perfect human beings. I can relate to an animal. #Quote by Carroll Shelby
Animal Cruelty quotes by Dieter Braun
#89. Even if mankind can go on without them, a piece of our vibrantly diverse world dies along with each species. #Quote by Dieter Braun
Animal Cruelty quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#90. Things are no longer what they seem to be. My telephones are haunted, and animals whisper at me from unseen places. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Animal Cruelty quotes by Jack Serv
#91. An amorous night is to approach a state of perfection that only two lovers can reach; you see this requires--no it demands, implores the deepest reverence, trust, insatiable desire, and mad lust for her. To worship her by abolishing the weakness of fear, the fear of betrayal, infidelity, the lack of reciprocation and bequeathing the body and soul to her, to worship her, to yearn and gain her unfettered permission to her body and soul, to accept the primal desires the animal needs that dwell inside, yet to have passion, tender love-making and violent sex all in the same night, as one--approaching this perfection is approaching heaven on earth. #Quote by Jack Serv
Animal Cruelty quotes by Edward T. Hall
#92. People carry around with them internalization's fixed-feature space learned early in life. Man is like other members of the animal kingdom , first, last and always a prisoner of his biological organism. No matter how hard he tries, it is impossible for him to the best himself of his own culture, where it has penetrated to the roots of his nervous system and determines how he perceives the world. #Quote by Edward T. Hall
Animal Cruelty quotes by Howard Zinn
#93. TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places - and there are so many - where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
And if we do act, in however small a way, we don't have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory. #Quote by Howard Zinn

Animal Cruelty quotes by C.S. Pacat
#95. Even before Laurent had hit the ground,
the man had drawn his sword.
Damen was too far away. He was too far
to get between the man and Laurent, he
knew that, even as he
drew his sword--even as he wheeled his
horse, felt the powerful bunch of the
animal beneath him. There was only one
thing he could do. As the spray of water
sheared up from under his horse, he
hefted his
sword, changed his grip, and threw.
It was, emphatically, not a throwing
weapon. It was six pounds of Rabatian
steel, forged for a two-handed grip. And
he was on a moving horse, and many feet
away, and the man was moving too,
towards
Laurent.
The sword drove through the air and
took the man in the chest, ramming into
the ground and pinning him there. #Quote by C.S. Pacat
Animal Cruelty quotes by Richard Jefferies
#96. I have observed that almost all those whose labour lies in the field, and who go down to their business in the green meadows, admit the animal world to a share in the faculty of reason. It is the cabinet makers who construct a universe of automatons. #Quote by Richard Jefferies
Animal Cruelty quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#97. WOMAN, n. An animal usually living in the vicinity of Man, and having a rudimentary susceptibility to domestication. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Animal Cruelty quotes by Michael Pollan
#98. We're supposed to show people how the world is, to give them the tools they need to make good decisions as citizens or consumers. Depending on what your values are - the environment, your health, animal welfare - the answers are going to be different for every person. #Quote by Michael Pollan
Animal Cruelty quotes by David Malouf
#99. Fiction, with its preference for what is small and might elsewhere seem irrelevant; its facility for smuggling us into another skin and allowing us to live a new life there; its painstaking devotion to what without it might go unnoticed and unseen; its respect for contingency, and the unlikely and odd; its willingness to expose itself to moments of low, almost animal being and make them nobly illuminating, can deliver truths we might not otherwise stumble on. #Quote by David Malouf
Animal Cruelty quotes by C.S. Lewis
#100. [T]he pleasure of putting other people in the wrong, of bossing and patronizing and spoiling sport, and back-biting, the pleasures of power, of hatred. For there are two things inside me, competing with the human self which I must try to become. They are the Animal self and the Diabolical self. The Diabolical self is the worse of the two. This is why a cold, self-righteous prig who goes regularly to church may be far nearer to hell than a prostitute. But of course, it is better to be neither. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Animal Cruelty quotes by Witold Gombrowicz
#101. And just as he had earlier, during their lunch hour, insinuated the problem of innocence to the formalists - which had incensed them and boosted their immaturity a hundredfold - he was now making an issue of my modern legs. And there I was, listening and lapping it all up - his linking the calves of my legs with those of the new generation - and coming to feel the cruelty of youth toward old calves! And there was also a kind of leg camaraderie with the schoolgirl, plus a clandestine, voluptuous collusion of legs, plus leg patriotism, plus the impudence of young legs, plus leg poetry, plus young-blooded pride in the calf of the leg, and a cult of the calf of the leg. Oh, what a fiendish body part! #Quote by Witold Gombrowicz
Animal Cruelty quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#102. To-day all our novels and newspapers will be found to be swarming with numberless allusions to the popular character called a Cave-Man. He seems to be quite familiar to us, not only as a public character but as a private character. His psychology is seriously taken into account in psychological fiction and psychological medicine. So far as I can understand, his chief occupation in life was knocking his wife about, or treating women in general with what is, I believe, known in the world of the film as 'rough stuff.' I have never happeend to come upon the evidence for this idea; and I do not know on what primitive diaries or prehistoric divorce-reports it is founded. Nor, as I have explained elsewhere, have I ever been able to see the probability of it, even considered a priori. We are always told without any explanation or authority that primitive man waved a club and knocked the woman down before he carried her off. But on every animal analogy, it would seem an almost morbid modesty and reluctance, on the part of the lady, always to insist on being knocked down before consenting to be carried off. And I repeat that I can never comprehend why, when the male was so very rude, the female should have been so very refined. The cave-man may have been a brute, but there is no reason why he should have been more brutal than the brutes. And the loves of the giraffes and the river romances of the hippopotami are affected without any of this preliminary fracas or shindy. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Animal Cruelty quotes by Chief Luther Standing Bear
#103. Kinship with all creatures of the earth, sky, and water was a real and active principle. In the animal and bird world there existed a brotherly feeling that kept us safe among them ... The animals had rights - the right of man's protection, the right to live, the right to multiply, the right to freedom, and the right to man's indebtedness. This concept of life and its relations filled us with the joy and mystery of living; it gave us reverence for all life; it made a place for all things in the scheme of existence with equal importance to all. #Quote by Chief Luther Standing Bear
Animal Cruelty quotes by John Steinbeck
#104. When you collect marine animals there are certain flat worms so delicate that they are almost impossible to catch whole for they will break and tatter under the touch. You must let them ooze and crawl of their own will onto a knife blade and lift them gently into your bottle of sea water. And perhaps that might be the way to write this book-to open the page and let the stories crawl in by themselves. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Animal Cruelty quotes by Saeed Malik
#105. The grapes of my body can only become wine after the winemaker tramples me. I surrender my spirit like grapes to his trampling so my inmost heart can blaze and dance with joy. Although the grapes go on weeping blood and sobbing: "I cannot bear any more anguish, and more cruelty" The trampler stuffs cotton in his ears: "I am not working in ignorance. You can deny Me if you want, you have every excuse, but it is I who am the Master of this work. And when through My Passion you reach perfection you will never be done praising My Name."[326] #Quote by Saeed Malik
Animal Cruelty quotes by Les Stroud
#106. All you need is a [insert plant], some [insert stick / rock / animal feces], and a good multitool. #Quote by Les Stroud
Animal Cruelty quotes by Alice   Miller
#107. Because the victims are "only children," their distress is trivialized. But in twenty years' time these children will be adult who will feel compelled to pay it all back to their own children. They may consciously fight with vigor against cruelty in the world yet carry within themselves an experience of cruelty that they may unconsciously inflict on others. As long as it remains hidden behind their idealized picture of a happy childhood, they will have not awareness of it and will therefore be unable to avoid passing it on.

It is absolutely urgent that people become aware of the degree to which this disrespect of children is persistently transmitted from one generation to the next, perpetuating destructive behavior. Someone who slaps or hits another adult or knowingly insults her is aware of hurting her. Even if he doesn't know why he is doing this, he has some sense of what he is doing. But how often were our parents, and we ourselves toward our own children, unconscious of how painfully, deeply, and abidingly they and we injured a child's tender, budding self? #Quote by Alice Miller
Animal Cruelty quotes by Stephen Pressfield
#108. If you find yourself criticizing other people, you're probably doing it out of Resistance. When we see others beginning to live their authentic selves, it drives us crazy if we have not lived out our own.
Individuals who are realized in their own lives almost never criticize others. if they speak at all, it is to offer encouragement. Watch yourself. Of all the manifestations of Resistance, most only harm ourselves. Criticism and cruelty harm others as well. #Quote by Stephen Pressfield
