Animal quotes by Richelle Mead
#1. We could, you know, go out for hot dogs. Don't worry - they're not actually dogs. It's just a name. They're these meat things that you put on buns - that's a kind of bread - and then you top them with other things and - "

"I know what a hot dog is," interrupted Mark.

"You do?" I asked, legitimately surprised. "How?"

"We're not that remote. We have TV and movies. Besides, I've left Siberia, you know. I've been to the U.S."

"Really? Did you try a hot dog?"

"No," he said. "I was offered one … but it didn't look that appetizing."

"What!" I exclaimed. "Blasphemy. They're delicious."

"Aren't they compressed animal parts?" he pushed.

"Well, yeah… I think so. But so is sausage."

Mark shook his head. "I don't know. Something's just not right about a hot dog."

"Not right? I think you mean so right. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Animal quotes by Paul Oxton
#2. Humankind must begin to learn that the life of an animal is in no way less precious than our own. #Quote by Paul Oxton
Animal quotes by Terence McKenna
#3. History is ending because the dominator culture has led the human species into a blind alley, and as the inevitable chaostrophie approaches, people look for metaphors and answers. Every time a culture gets into trouble it casts itself back into the past looking for the last sane moment it ever knew. And the last sane moment we ever knew was on the plains of Africa 15,000 years ago rocked in the cradle of the Great Horned Mushroom Goddess before history, before standing armies, before slavery and property, before warfare and phonetic alphabets and monotheism, before, before, before. And this is where the future is taking us because the secret faith of the twentieth century is not modernism, the secret faith of the twentieth century is nostalgia for the archaic, nostalgia for the paleolithic, and that gives us body piercing, abstract expressionism, surrealism, jazz, rock-n-roll and catastrophe theory. The 20th century mind is nostalgic for the paradise that once existed on the mushroom dotted plains of Africa where the plant-human symbiosis occurred that pulled us out of the animal body and into the tool-using, culture-making, imagination-exploring creature that we are. And why does this matter? It matters because it shows that the way out is back and that the future is a forward escape into the past. This is what the psychedelic experience means. Its a doorway out of history and into the wiring under the board in eternity. And I tell you this because if the community understan #Quote by Terence McKenna
Animal quotes by Lynette Fromme
#4. How much will you give for the lives of your childrens children, which is yourself? How much are people willing to give up for air, earth, water, animals, and the coming generations? I think the answer to that is pretty clear. #Quote by Lynette Fromme
Animal quotes by Charlaine Harris
#5. The last time I wore an animal hide; but this time I settled for this. Eric had been wearing a long trench coat. Now he threw it off dramatically, and I could only stand and stare. Normally, Eric was a blue-jeans-and-T-shirt kind of guy. Tonight, he wore a pink tank top and Lycra leggings[ ... ]They were pink and aqua, like the swirls down the side of Jason's truck. #Quote by Charlaine Harris
Animal quotes by Arthur Koestler
#6. It was Owen who defined 'homologous organs' as 'the same organ in different animals under every variety of form and function'. While he tirelessly demonstrated the multitude of such organs in the animal kingdom, he attributed them to the parsimony of the divine Designer-just as Kepler had attributed his planetary laws to the ingenuity of the divine Mathematician.

But whatever the beliefs of these men, the concept of homology came to stay, and became a cornerstone of modern evolutionary theory. Animals and plants are made out of homologous organelles like the mitochondria, homologous organs like gills and lungs, homologous limbs such as arms and wings. They are the stable holons in the evolutionary flux. The phenomena of homology implied in fact the hierarchic principle in phylogeny as well as in ontogeny. But the point was never made explicit, and the principles of hierarchic order hardly received a cursory glance. This may be why the inherent contradictions of the orthodox theory could pass so long unnoticed. #Quote by Arthur Koestler
Animal quotes by Wendell Berry
#7. To husband is to use with care, to keep, to save, to make last, to conserve. Old usage tells us that there is a husbandry also of the land, of the soil, of the domestic plants and animals - obviously because of the importance of these things to the household. And there have been times, one of which is now, when some people have tried to practice a proper human husbandry of the nondomestic creatures in recognition of the dependence of our households and domestic life upon the wild world. Husbandry is the name of all practices that sustain life by connecting us conservingly to our places and our world; it is the art of keeping tied all the strands in the living network that sustains us.
And so it appears that most and perhaps all of industrial agriculture's manifest failures are the result of an attempt to make the land produce without husbandry. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Animal quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#8. The persistence of the story of animal consent into the contemporary era tells of a human appreciation of the stakes, and a desire to do the right thing. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Animal quotes by Margaret Atwood
#9. God gave unto the Animals A wisdom past our power to see: Each knows innately how to live, Which we must learn laboriously. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Animal quotes by Cass R. Sunstein
#10. If we understand "rights" to be legal protection against harm, then many animals already do have rights, and the idea of animal rights is not terribly controversial. #Quote by Cass R. Sunstein
Animal quotes by Malcolm De Chazal
#11. The chicken "understands" the dog, the dog can interpret the dove's cooing, the insect can fathom the lowing of the cow, and no matter how faraway the eagle may be, the cow can tell where it is. All audible animal messages are indifferently understood by all animals even though each one is monolingual at most. Could there be any more remarkable lesson in and example of understanding others without loss of personality? Most impenetrable to the thoughts of others are those who have no personal language. Most intolerant people hail from the land of self-ignorance. #Quote by Malcolm De Chazal
Animal quotes by Sandra Neil Wallace
#12. They got a manure machine in there," Keller said. He went up to the barn and peeked through a hole between tow boards. "On wheels. It's fun to ride sometimes, when you don't care how you smell. #Quote by Sandra Neil Wallace
Animal quotes by James Blish
#13. The boundary between the real and the unreal had been let down in Foote's mind, and between the comings and goings of the cloud-shadows and the dark errands of the ghosts there was no longer any way of making a selection. He had entered the cobwebby borderland between the human and the animal, where nothing is ever more than half true, and only as much as half true for the moment.

("There Shall Be No Darkness") #Quote by James Blish
Animal quotes by Carl Schmitt
#14. The transformation of the community into an administrative state responsible for total social welfare leads to a paternal totality without a house-father when it fails to find any archy or cracy that is more than a mere nomos of distribution and production.
I consider it to be a utopia when Friedrich Engels promises that one day all power of men over men will cease, that there will be only production and consumption with no problems, and that "things will govern themselves." This things-governing-themselves will make every archy and cracy super­fluous , and demonstrate that mankind at last has found its formula, just as, according to Dostoyevsky, the bees found their formula in the beehive, because animal s, too, have their nomos. Most of those who swarm around a nomos basileus fail to notice that, in reality, they propagate just such a formula. #Quote by Carl Schmitt
Animal quotes by Jon Katz
#15. My beloved dog defied treatment from the best and most expensive veterinarians, holistic practitioners, trainers, and animal communicators. He was simply beyond my ability to repair or control. #Quote by Jon Katz
Animal quotes by Gary L. Francione
#16. If you think that being vegan is difficult, imagine how difficult it is for animals that you are not vegan. #Quote by Gary L. Francione
Animal quotes by Edward Thorndike
#17. Some statements concern the conscious states of the animal, what he is to himself as an inner life; others concern his original and acquired ways of response, his behavior, what he is an outside observer. #Quote by Edward Thorndike
Animal quotes by Colleen Houck
#18. There was a muffled tap again, and I heard a familiar voice whisper faintly, "Kelsey, it's me."
I unlocked the door and peeked out. Ren was standing there dressed in his white clothes, barefoot, with a triumphant grin on his face. I pulled him inside and hissed out thickly, "What are you doing here? It's dangerous coming into town! You could have been seen, and they'd send hunters out after you!"
He shrugged his shoulders and grinned. "I missed you."
My mouth quirked up in a half smile. "I missed you too."
He leaned a shoulder nonchalantly against the doorframe. "Does that mean you'll let me stay here? I'll sleep on the floor and leave before daylight. No one will see me. I promise."
I let out a deep breath. "Okay, but promise you'll leave early. I don't like you risking yourself like this."
"I promise." He sat down on the bed, took my hand, and pulled me down to sit beside him. "I don't like sleeping in the dark jungle by myself."
"I wouldn't either."
He looked down at our entwined hands. "When I'm with you, I feel like a man again. When I'm out there all alone, I feel like a beast, an animal." His eyes darted up to mine.
I squeezed his hand. "I understand. It's fine. Really."
He grinned. "You were hard to track, you know. Lucky for me you two decided to walk to dinner, so I could follow your scent right to your door."
Something on the nightstand caught his attention. Leaning around me, he reached over and picked up my o #Quote by Colleen Houck
Animal quotes by Booboo Stewart
#19. If you guys are interested in getting any kind of animal, definitely go and adopt. #Quote by Booboo Stewart
Animal quotes by Jennifer Arnold
#20. Hunger, safety, & social attachment seem to be more important than play. If an animal is hungry, stressed or lonely, he is unlikely to play. #Quote by Jennifer Arnold
Animal quotes by Jonathan Gottschall
#21. Don't despair for story's future or turn curmudgeonly over the rise of video games or reality TV. The way we experience story will evolve, but as storytelling animals, we will no more give it up than start walking on all fours. #Quote by Jonathan Gottschall
Animal quotes by Sylvia Earle
#22. Nearly all of the major kinds of life, divisions of life, phyla of animals, occur in the sea. Only about half of them can make it to land or freshwater. #Quote by Sylvia Earle
Animal quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#23. I hold flesh-food to be unsuited to our species. We err in copying the lower animal world if we are superior to it. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Animal quotes by Rick Wakeman
#24. Sparks is a sporting charity that puts on golf tournaments for sick children, and my animal charities include Oldham Cats and Feline Care, a big cat charity close to me in Norfolk. I'm also a Freemason and the money they raise for charity is phenomenal. #Quote by Rick Wakeman
Animal quotes by Peter Singer
#25. Pain is pain, and the importance of preventing unnecessary pain and suffering does not diminish because the being that suffers is not a member of our own species. #Quote by Peter Singer
Animal quotes by E. O. Wilson
#26. While ants exist in just the right numbers for the rest of the living world, humans have become too numerous. If we were to vanish today, the land environment would return to the fertile balance that existed before the human population explosion. Only a dozen or so species, among which are the crab louse and a mite that lives in the oil glands of our foreheads, depend on us entirely. But if ants were to disappear, tens of thousands of other plants and animal species would perish also, simplifying and weakening land ecosystems almost everywhere. #Quote by E. O. Wilson
Animal quotes by Lisa Kemmerer
#27. You ultimately decide, every day, whether or not your life will speak on behalf of the oppressed, or remain an inaudible but decisive tool for the status quo. #Quote by Lisa Kemmerer
Animal quotes by Tom Robbins
#28. When we can converse with the animals, we will know the change is halfway here. When we can converse with the forest, we will know the change has come. #Quote by Tom Robbins
Animal quotes by Marc Morrone
#29. I have kept every kind of animal and plant that is legal to privately own. #Quote by Marc Morrone
Animal quotes by Kenneth Grahame
#30. No animal, according to the rules of animal-etiquette, is ever expected to do anything strenuous, or heroic, or even moderately active during the off-season of winter. #Quote by Kenneth Grahame
Animal quotes by Georges Bernanos
#31. The contradictions in Renan , his feminine sensibility, coquetry, unavowed egotism, and sudden emotional outbursts, all indicate a soul deliberately using distraction as a means of evasion. The perpetual equivocation bears witness to God in the same way as the twisting and turning of a hunted animal indicates the presence of an unseen hunter. #Quote by Georges Bernanos
Animal quotes by Rupert Everett
#32. I'm not really a political animal but I am rather fascinated by the meltdown of England and America. In the end, it seems as if America might come out of it, but I'm not sure if England is ever going to recover. #Quote by Rupert Everett
Animal quotes by Douglas Coupland
#33. Being asked what animal you'd like to be is a trick question; you're already an animal. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Animal quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#34. Animal agriculture is now dominated by the factory farm- 99.9% of chickens raised for meat, 97% of laying hens, 99% of turkeys, 95% of pigs, and 78% of cattle. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Animal quotes by Poul Anderson
#35. In the intricate and mutable space-time geometry at the black hole, in-falling matter and energy interacted with the virtualities of the vacuum in ways unknown to the flatter cosmos beyond it. Quasi-stable quantum states appeared, linked according to Schrodinger's wave functions and their own entanglement, more and more of them, intricacy compounding until it amounted to a set of codes. The uncertainty principle wrought mutations; variants perished or flourished; forms competed, cooperated, merged, divided, interacted; the patterns multiplied and diversified; at last, along one fork on a branch of the life tree, thought budded.
That life was not organic, animal and vegetable and lesser kingdoms, growing, breathing, drinking, eating, breeding, hunting, hiding; it kindled no fires and wielded no tools; from the beginning, it was a kind of oneness. An original unity differentiated itself into countless avatars, like waves on a sea. They arose and lived individually, coalesced when they chose by twos or threes or multitudes, reemerged as other than they had been, gave themselves and their experiences back to the underlying whole. Evolution, history, lives eerily resembled memes in organic minds.
Yet quantum life was not a series of shifting abstractions. Like the organic, it was in and of its environment. It acted to alter its quantum states and those around it: action that manifested itself as electronic, photonic, and nuclear events. Its domain was no more shadowy to #Quote by Poul Anderson
Animal quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#36. In every animal that walks upright, the deficiency of the Fluids that fill the Muscles appears first in the highest Part: The Face first grows lank and wrinkled; then the neck; then the breast and arms; the lower parts continuing to the last as plump as ever; so that covering all above with a basket, and regarding only what is below the girdle, it is impossible of two women to know an old from a young one. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Animal quotes by Leonard Cohen
#37. Seven to eleven is a huge chunk of life, full of dulling and forgetting. It is fabled that we slowly lose the gift of speech with animals, that birds no longer visit our windowsills to converse. As our eyes grow accustomed to sight they armor themselves against wonder. #Quote by Leonard Cohen
Animal quotes by Leonard Sweet
#38. It would not do for the consumer to know that the hamburger she is eating came from a steer who spent much of his life standing deep in his own excrement in a feedlot, helping to pollute the local streams. Or that the calf that yielded the veal cutlet on her plate spent its life in a box in which it did not have room to turn around. Wendell Berry, "The Pleasures of Eating," What Are People For?, 1989 Jesus pioneered a relationship ethic based on compassion. Being a disciple means building relationships - with the Creator and with all creation and creatures. #Quote by Leonard Sweet
Animal quotes by Erasmus Darwin
#39. Some philosophers have been of opinion that our immortal part acquires during this life certain habits of action or of sentiment, which become forever indissoluble, continuing after death in a future state of existence ... I would apply this ingenious idea to the generation, or production of the embryon, or new animal, which partakes so much of the form and propensities of the parent. #Quote by Erasmus Darwin
Animal quotes by Kenneth E. Boulding
#40. Because of his capacity for abstract communications and language and his ability to enter in imagination into the lives of others, man is able to build organizations of a size and complexity far beyond those of the lower animals. #Quote by Kenneth E. Boulding
Animal quotes by Shoshana Zuboff
#41. Labor came to humanity with the fall from grace and was at best a penitential sacrifice enabling purity through humiliation. Laborwas toil, distress, trouble, fatigue
an exertion both painful and compulsory. Labor was our animal condition, struggling to survive in dirt and darkness. #Quote by Shoshana Zuboff
Animal quotes by Dave Barry
#42. Derangement is the only possible explanation for owning a cat, an animal whose preferred mode of communication is to sink its claws three-quarters of an inch into your flesh. #Quote by Dave Barry
Animal quotes by Michael Hardt
#43. Through luminous and erudite readings of the texts, Hasana Sharp shows us how profound and radical is Spinoza's conception of nature and his claim that humans always remain part of nature, acting solely according to the same rules. She demonstrates the political consequences of adopting this perspective through a provocative intervention in contemporary feminist theory, while along the way opening promising avenues for future work in a variety of other fields, such as animal studies and ecology. This is a challenging and important book. #Quote by Michael Hardt
Animal quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#44. We can now determine, easily and relatively cheaply, the detailed chemical architecture of genes ; and we can trace the products of these genes ( enzymes and proteins ) as they influence the course of embryology . In so doing we have made the astounding discovery that all complex animal phyla - arthropods and vertebrates in particular - have retained, despite their half-billion years of evolutionary independence, an extensive set of common genetic blueprints for building bodies. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould
Animal quotes by Norm Phelps
#45. The beginning of mindful eating is the realization that eating meat is not about the meat-eater; it is about the animals who are tormented and killed. #Quote by Norm Phelps
Animal quotes by Yann Martel
#46. There are many examples of animals coming to surprising living arrangements ... where an animal takes a human being or another animal to be one of it's kind. #Quote by Yann Martel
Animal quotes by David Foreman
#47. The human race could go extinct and I for one would not shed any tears. #Quote by David Foreman
Animal quotes by Clare McNally
#48. Her arms groped forward to guide her when her tears blocked her vision in darkness. Then she couldn't run any more. She sank to her knees and began to cry in her terror. She wanted Gary.
She suddenly felt strong arms around her. She bent her head to bury it in Gary's shoulder, trembling in the darkness.
Whimpering like a small animal in a trap, she pushed herself closer to him and said in a choked voice, "I'm so frightened!"
"I know, my love," the voice said. "I'm so sorry you were hurt."
She felt herself being pulled up to him, his grip around her tight. It was a strange feeling in this pitch-black hallway, where not even the light of the moon cast any illumination. The lips she touched were cold and yet they responded to her with an unusual warmth. His hands massaged her back. Something, Melanie thought, was wrong with that. The hands were too smooth, not like a plastered wrist would feel.
"Gary?" she asked, backing away. She didn't trust what she couldn't see.
"My love," the voice whispered, "there is no need to fear now. I shall protect you from those who mean you harm. #Quote by Clare McNally
Animal quotes by Georges Bataille
#49. Man always becomes other. Man is the animal who continually differs from himself. #Quote by Georges Bataille
Animal quotes by Wallace Shawn
#50. I don't see that many plays, and for me, musicals are rarely pleasing. #Quote by Wallace Shawn
Animal quotes by Alice Walker
#51. The animals of the planet are in desperate peril ... Without free animal life I believe we will lose the spiritual equivalent of oxygen. #Quote by Alice Walker
Animal quotes by Mathieu Amalric
#52. Acting is about animality. It's great to be allowed to be animal. But I feel more alive as a director. Every morning, I have to write. #Quote by Mathieu Amalric
Animal quotes by Hiram Powers
#53. The eye is the window of the soul, the mouth the door. The intellect, the will, are seen in the eye; the emotions, sensibilities, and affections, in the mouth. The animals look for man's intentions right into his eyes. Even a rat, when you hunt him and bring him to bay, looks you in the eye. #Quote by Hiram Powers
Animal quotes by William E. Conway, Jr.
#54. No tame animal has lost less of its native dignity or maintained more of its ancient reserve. The domestic cat might rebel tomorrow. #Quote by William E. Conway, Jr.
Animal quotes by Nathaniel Altman
#55. As a so-called "civilized" people, and as members of a society in search of lasting peace in the world, we cannot remain callous to our responsibility toward nature and insensitive to the inherent rights of the animals. #Quote by Nathaniel Altman
Animal quotes by Grant Morrison
#56. Animal Man: 'Listen, just tell me one thing: am I REAL or what?'
Grant Morrison: 'Of COURSE you're real! We wouldn't be here talking if you weren't real.
'You existed long before I wrote about you and, if you're lucky, you'll still be young when I'm old or dead.
'You're more real than I am. #Quote by Grant Morrison
Animal quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#57. With extreme care, Morgan curved his arm around her waist and pulled her back against him, so they were pressed together spoon fashion. Vivien couldn't prevent a small gasp at the animal heat and hardness of his body, evident through the nightclothes that separated them.
"You're not afraid, are you?" he murmured at the soft sound.
"No," she replied breathlessly. "But... I'm having a difficult time thinking of you as a friend."
The arm at her waist tightened a minute degree. "Good," he said thickly. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Animal quotes by Rachel Zucker
#58. Anyway,
if my lips were rose petals they'd taste too bitter.
If my cheeks were apples they'd crawl with apple worms.
If my eyes were stars they'd be dead by the time you saw them.
If I moved you like the moon I'd disappear once a month.
If my teeth were Chiclets you'd want to chew on them and spit them out.
If my hands were birds you couldn't hold them; they'd peck you bloody.
Is my skin alabaster? Then it's cold and hard and one day someone will skin me,
make me into a cold hard box tinged with pink or yellow, to hold unguents, then
how will you love me?
If my vagina is a cool, dark forest you'll certainly be lost, you have no sense of direction.
If my vagina is a cave-watch out! It's prone to seismic shifts and avalanche.
If my vagina is a river of honey: orange, lavender, fine herbs, hazelnut, all too sweet.
If my ears are shells I can't hear you, only the ocean anyway.
And if my voice is music, it is unintelligible.
Don't say anything.
I am not a flower, but a body with rules and predictable, cellular qualities.
My eyelashes and fingernails and skin and spit are organized by proteins
designed to erode at a pre-encoded date and time, no matter what you do or do
not do to me-
I am remarkably like an animal.
More like a heifer than a sunrise, I want to bite, stroke, swallow you so stop lying
there trying to think of something to say and trying to understand me.
#Quote by Rachel Zucker
Animal quotes by Winston S. Churchill
#59. No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle. #Quote by Winston S. Churchill
Animal quotes by James Jones
#60. The quickest, efficient, least expensive way to educate a man is to make it painful for him when he is wrong, the same as with any other animal. #Quote by James Jones
Animal quotes by S.J. Watson
#61. I want to sleep. To find a safe place somewhere, and close my eyes, and rest, like an animal.
That is what I am. An animal. Living from moment to moment, day to day, trying to make sense of the world in which I find myself. #Quote by S.J. Watson
Animal quotes by Sara Gruen
#62. I just don't think I've had the desire yet to write a vicious animal - like a dog-gone-bad or anything - where I do feel that I need a balance of all types of humans. #Quote by Sara Gruen
Animal quotes by Judith-Victoria Douglas
#63. Few understand that horses are never truly domesticated. Their instincts are always there and readily take over once they are free. They stay or return to us by their choice, not the compulsion forced upon them.
Once realized you must also recognize only kindness will prevail to make a partner of an animal who'd prefer only the company of his kind and the freedom of wide open spaces. Any other relationship is based on the inadequacies of the tormentor on the tormented. One will lose. It's always the horse, for even if he wins his defensive battle the mark of rogue will remain.
It's been witnessed how a mustang will give up his life if his freedom can't be regained when in the grip of adversity. There's so much for us to learn from this, if we'd only learn to listen to their message. #Quote by Judith-Victoria Douglas
Animal quotes by Francesca Lia Block
#64. 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 quotes by Shay Caroline
#65. The Easter egg which was not found
contained a letter from the hen who laid it,
saying Fuck your kids,
What about mine? #Quote by Shay Caroline
Animal quotes by Michael Grant
#66. Do you love me?" Diana asked.
Caine's eyes widened. She could actually see him twitch. Like a startled animal. Like a rabbit who had just heard a fox.
"It's a yes or no question," Diana said acidly. "But I'll accept a nod or a shake of the head or an incoherent grunt."
"I . . . I don't know what you mean by that," Caine said lamely.
"When I jumped off the cliff, you saved me even though it meant letting Sanjit and the others escape."
"You didn't give me much choice," Caine said peevishly. "You had a choice. You wanted to destroy them."
"Okay."
"Why did you make that choice?"
Caine swallowed and seemed to find his palms sweaty since he rubbed them on his sides.
Diana walked to the door. She unlocked it and held it open. "Go away," she said. "Come back when you figure out your answer. #Quote by Michael Grant
Animal quotes by Catherine Carrigan
#67. To communicate intuitively to an animal, the simplest way to begin is to set your intention for your soul to communicate with the animal's soul. #Quote by Catherine Carrigan
Animal quotes by Milan Kundera
#68. True human goodness, in all its purity and freedom, can come to the fore only when its recipient has no power. Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which is deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Animal quotes by Sophy Burnham
#69. I think our animals are angels, earth-angels, pointing out for us the steadfast path of love, loyalty, optimism, faith, joy, hope. They teach us everything important about life. #Quote by Sophy Burnham
Animal quotes by James Cromwell
#70. You don't just one day say, 'That's it, I'm doing this, I'm going to throw all my shoes out and I'm not eating honey and I won't drive my car because there are animal bones in the tires ... ' because you'd drive yourself around the bend. #Quote by James Cromwell
Animal quotes by Mike Johanns
#71. Science is the international language, so when we are able to convince countries that good decision-making for human health and animal health is based upon science, that's a real success story for us. #Quote by Mike Johanns
Animal quotes by Cassandra Clare
#72. Jem spoke with enormous care; talking to Will about anything personal was like trying not to startle away a wild animal. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Animal quotes by Phil Hine
#73. Henceforth, whilst there are a great many theories and models proposed as to how, or why, magic works (based on subtle energies, animal magnetism, psychological concepts, quantum theory, mathematics or the so-called anthropomorphic principle) it is not a case that one of them is more 'true' than others, but a case of which theory or model you choose to believe in, or which theory you find most attractive. Indeed, from a Chaos Magic perspective, you can selectively believe that a particular theory or model of magical action is true only for the duration of a particular ritual or phase of work. #Quote by Phil Hine
Animal quotes by Paul Goodman
#74. To learn theory by experimenting and doing.
To learn belonging by participating and self-rule.
Permissiveness in all animal behavior and interpersonal expression.
Emphasis on individual differences.
Unblocking and training feeling by plastic arts, eurythmics and dramatics.
Tolerance of races, classes, and cultures.
Group therapy as a means of solidarity, in the staff meeting and community meeting.
Taking youth seriously as an age in itself.
Community of youth and adults, minimizing 'authority.'
Educational use of the actual physical plant (buildings and farms) and the culture of the school community.
Emphasis in the curriculum on real problems and wider society, its geography and history, with actual participation in the neighboring community (village or city).
Trying for functional interrelation of activities. #Quote by Paul Goodman
Animal quotes by E. Everett Evans
#75. They walked gingerly across the junk-filled vacant lots to the local abattoir - a place of infinite fascination, with its strange sights and stranger smells.
It was a thrill - because it outraged their every sense of animal love - to watch the killings. To see calm, innocent cattle led one by one into that room with the fetid smells and the stained, concrete floor always a'swish with running water. To see brawny, heavy-set Gus Milner and his equally big son, Charley, slip the snubbing rope through the ring in the cow's nose, and relentlessly draw its head down and down until its nose touched the heavy ring set in the floor, then fasten it.
Their hearts did strange nip-ups just back of their mouths as one of the men would pick up the heavy sledge, and with one great, perfectly aimed blow, strike the animal just between and a bit above the eyes. They always jumped at the sudden slump as the carcass dropped, spraddled and lifeless, to the floor.
("The Shed") #Quote by E. Everett Evans
Animal quotes by Henry Spira
#76. My dream is that people will come to view eating an animal as cannibalism. #Quote by Henry Spira
Animal quotes by Victor Hugo
#77. In the animal world no creature born to be a dove turns into a scavenger. This happens only among men. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Animal quotes by Nick Trout
#78. Here was my lesson in the reach of veterinary medicine, in how an animal doctor may not be the one standing up when disaster strikes and someone shouts, 'Is there a doctor in the house?' but occasionally, if he or she is lucky, a vet can help heal a sick loved one. #Quote by Nick Trout
Animal quotes by Gavin Edwards
#79. Every child starts out loving animals, identifying with them. But early on, adults start sending them contradictory messages. They'll give a kid a stuffed animal to hug and love and sleep with. But at the same time, they're serving them animals for dinner every night. It's crazy, if you think about it. But when you're young, you just accept what grown-ups tell you as the truth. #Quote by Gavin Edwards
Animal quotes by Richard Dawkins
#80. All animals are minor variations on a very particular theme. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Animal quotes by Will Cuppy
#81. The sloth lives his life upside down. He is perfectly comfortable that way. If the blood rushes to his head, nothing happens because there is nothing to work on. #Quote by Will Cuppy
Animal quotes by Henry Miller
#82. No more peeping through keyholes! No more masturbating in the dark! No more public confessions! Unscrew the doors from their jambs! I want a world where the vagina is represented by a crude, honest slit, a world that has feeling for bone and contour, for raw, primary colors, a world that has fear and respect for its animal origins. I'm sick of looking at cunts all tickled up, disguised, deformed, idealized. Cunts with nerve ends exposed. I don't want to watch young virgins masturbating in the privacy of their boudoirs or biting their nails or tearing their hair or lying on a bed full of bread crumbs for a whole chapter. #Quote by Henry Miller
Animal quotes by Dian Fossey
#83. I feel more comfortable with gorillas than people. I can anticipate what a gorilla's going to do, and they're purely motivated. #Quote by Dian Fossey
Animal quotes by Gertrude Stein
#84. It is very funny about money. The thing that differentiates man from animals is money. All animals have the same emotions and the same ways as men. Anybody who has lots of animals around knows that. But the thing no animal can do is count, and the thing no animal can know is money. #Quote by Gertrude Stein
Animal quotes by Adam Ferrara
#85. I look to nature because I think the animals are smarter than we are. Animals mate; humans date. There's no dating in the animal kingdom. No dinner, no movie - just a quick sniff, 'Alright, let's go.' #Quote by Adam Ferrara
Animal quotes by Setta Jay
#86. Then come get her furry ass. Your animal teleported directly beside Vane a minute ago. And now she won't stop snuggling up to him. I guess you missed the part where the beast started crushing on my mate at the lake? He #Quote by Setta Jay
Animal quotes by Jean-Baptiste Lamarck
#87. After having produced aquatic animals of all ranks and having caused extensive variations in them by the different environments provided by the waters, nature led them little by little to the habit of living in the air, first by the water's edge and afterwards on all the dry parts of the globe. These animals have in course of time been profoundly altered by such novel conditions; which so greatly influenced their habits and organs that the regular gradation which they should have exhibited in complexity of organisation is often scarcely recognisable. #Quote by Jean-Baptiste Lamarck
Animal quotes by Kate Grenville
#88. Words are a pretty blunt instrument. There's always going to be slippage between the words and the infinite complexities of a thought. As a writer, I find that frustrating, but as a social animal, I wouldn't have it any other way. #Quote by Kate Grenville
Animal quotes by John Grisham
#89. With murder, the victim is gone, and not forced to deal with what happened to her. The family must deal with it, but not the victim. But rape is much worse. The victim has a lifetime of coping, trying to understand, of asking questions, and the worst part, of knowing the rapist is still alive and may someday escape or be released. Every hour of every day, the victim thinks of the rape and asks herself a thousand questions. She relives it, step by step, minute by minute, and it hurts just as bad.
Perhaps the most horrible crime of all is the violent rape of a child. A woman who is raped has a pretty good idea why it happened. Some animal was filled with hatred, anger and violence. But a child? A ten-year-old child? Suppose you're a parent. Imagine yourself trying to explain to your child why she was raped. Imagine yourself trying to explain why she cannot bear children. #Quote by John Grisham
Animal quotes by Karl Von Frisch
#90. The ant is a collectively intelligent and individually stupid animal; man is the opposite. #Quote by Karl Von Frisch
Animal quotes by Martha Albrand
#91. There are as many jealousies in life as there are different flowers or trees or animals. #Quote by Martha Albrand
Animal quotes by Yoko Ono
#92. I'm kind of honored to be a dragon lady. The dragon is a very powerful, mythical animal. #Quote by Yoko Ono
Animal quotes by Ali Wong
#93. These fans were excited to see your mother perform, but more than that it was as if she was taking her audience to church like a fiery, foul-mouthed preacher who offered up profane salvation. There was the new mom who was enjoying her first night out after giving birth a month prior. There are fans who dress up like your mother, imitating the outfits she wore when you were both in her belly There are mothers who bring their daughters. There are those who travel from across the country, and sometimes across the world. They talk about your mother being their spirit animal. Their eyes are lit up, their faces relaxed and smiling, their postures open and welcoming. Watching this magical effect on her fans keeps me manning the merch table to this day. #Quote by Ali Wong
Animal quotes by Buckethead
#94. We are civilized animals, right? Then why do we continue to slaughter for sport? What if you were a Chicken, how would you feel? I grew up in a Chicken Coop and I was not a Chicken at first, until I was faced with your World! #Quote by Buckethead
Animal quotes by Francois Truffaut
#95. An actor is never so great as when he reminds you of an animal - falling like a cat, lying like a dog, moving like a fox. #Quote by Francois Truffaut
Animal quotes by Michael Rawlins
#96. The animal testing regime ... is utterly futile #Quote by Michael Rawlins
Animal quotes by Dolores Cannon
#97. Extraterrestri als are living now on Earth. They are everywhere, among your friends, neighbors, even your relatives. Their blood flows through our veins. We are as much brothers and sisters to beings from the stars as we are to animals of the Earth. #Quote by Dolores Cannon
Animal quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#98. The Darkling smiled, but this time the turn of his lips was cold. He shoved off the table and stalked toward me.

"I will enter the Fold, Alina, and I will show West Ravka what I can do, even without the Sun Summoner. And when I have crushed Lantsov's only ally, I will hunt you like an animal. You will find no sanctuary. You will have no peace." He loomed over me, his gray eyes glinting. "Fly back home to your otkazat'sya," he snarled. "Hold him tight. The rules of this game are about to change. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Animal quotes by Stephen Colbert
#99. So if animals aren't our friends, then what are they? The answer can be summed up between two buns. #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Animal quotes by Jonathan Turley
#100. For many, the recent disclosure of massive warrantless surveillance programs of all citizens by the Obama administration has brought back memories of George Orwell's '1984.' Another Orwell book seems more apt as the White House and its allies try to contain the scandal: 'Animal Farm.' #Quote by Jonathan Turley
Animal quotes by Jarod Kintz
#101. Last year I built a Courage Machine, but I thought it might be noisy and was too afraid to turn it on. So I coated it with glue, covered it with cat hair, mounted it on my wall, and started claiming it was an exotic animal I killed on a Safari in Africa. I'd like to believe people believe me, on account of it being so strange that it has to be true. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Animal quotes by Dean Koontz
#102. Fear is the engine that drives the human animal. Humanity sees the world as a place of uncountable threats, and so the world becomes what humanity imagines it to be. They not only live in fear but use fear to control one another. Fearmongering is their true religion. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Animal quotes by Alex Morgan
#103. I'd like to see you try to have my job. Around here I'm more connected than a Kennedy. As for our animals, there is no rapin' involved, they are more than willing, just ask your "girlfriend." She is probably gettin' a little animal lovin', and it's probably better than you, which is why she isn't answering your calls. Also, we aren't hillbillies, we are rednecks. Don't you have a map fucktard, no mountains in this part of the state, but you bring your ass down here, and I'll do you a solid. I'll introduce you to the fuckin' bubba-brigade. Have a good night, and if Mhisery ever rolls off the animal she is on, I'll tell her you called. #Quote by Alex Morgan
Animal quotes by Sarah Dunant
#104. It was so cold. In the monastery. Sometimes the wind came from the sea with ice in it... It could freeze the skin off your face. Once the snow was so deep we couldn't get out of the doors to the woodshed. A monk jumped from a window. He sank into a drift and took a long time to get up. That night, they made me sleep next to the stove. I was small, thin, like a piece of birch bark. But then the Stove went out.
Father Bernard took me into his cell... It was he who first gave me chalk and paper. He was so old his eyes his eyes looked as if he was crying. But he was never sad. In winter he had fewer blankets than the others. He said he didn't need them because God warmed him.
(...)
But even Father Bernard was cold that night. He laid me down on the bed next to him, wrapped me in an animal skin, then in his own arms. He told me stories about Jesus. How His love could wake the dead and how with Him in one's heart one could heat the world... When I woke it was light. The snow had stopped. I was warm. But he was cold. I gave him the skin but his body was stiff. I didn't know what to do. I got out a piece of paper from his chest under the bed and drew him, lying there. His face had a smile on it. I knew that God had been there when he died. That now He was in me, and because of Father Bernard I would be warm forever. #Quote by Sarah Dunant
Animal quotes by Patricia Briggs
#105. Stupid young girls who get caught alone in the forest fall prey to anything that crosses their paths, be the beast animal, human or shapeshifter. #Quote by Patricia Briggs
Animal quotes by Claire McClennan
#106. Tradition can not justify such misery. Surely people can enjoy themselves at a non-animal circus with exciting human acts instead? #Quote by Claire McClennan
Animal quotes by Ken Ilgunas
#107. When in a Mississippi jungle, you feel as if you're at the mercy of dark desires and ancient impulses. Despite unprecedented levels of pollution, cancerous suburban sprawl, and devastating natural disasters, the animals and insects still thrive in Mississippi. But not as much as the humans, the worst of all in Mississippi's animal kingdom, who reproduce with as little forethought as the cicadas restlessly moaning for mates in the bayou. Mississippi #Quote by Ken Ilgunas
Animal quotes by Wolfgang Hildesheimer
#108. I had given up magic, because it had reached a state of perfection. I felt that I was able to transform men into animals. I did not make use of this capability, because I believed I could not justify an intervention of this kind in the life of another person. #Quote by Wolfgang Hildesheimer
Animal quotes by Rachael Ray
#109. We created a line of pet food called Nutrish that's made to human standards, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to animal rescue. One of our top-tier donors is the ASPCA, and they help us challenge animal shelters all across the country to get more animals placed in homes. #Quote by Rachael Ray
Animal quotes by Also Leopold
#110. One of the anomalies of modern ecology is the creation of two groups, each of which seems barely aware of the existence of the other. The one studies the human community, almost as if it were a separate entity, and calls its findings sociology, economics and history. The other studies the plant and animal community and comfortably relegates the hodge-podge of politics to the liberal arts. The inevitable fusion of these two lines of thought will, perhaps, constitute the outstanding advance of this century. #Quote by Also Leopold
Animal quotes by Shivanshu K. Srivastava
#111. When you don't allow nature to take its course and keep interfering with its freedom and exploiting it, the repercussions are bound to happen. Freedom is the common goal which every organism strives to accomplish. #Quote by Shivanshu K. Srivastava
Animal quotes by Carl Linnaeus
#112. Stones grow, plants grow, and live, animals grow live and feel. #Quote by Carl Linnaeus
Animal quotes by Jeff Corwin
#113. Many of the medicines we use today, to fight everything from AIDS to cancer, originate as a toxin in an amphibian skin. When we lose these animals, we lose resources. We lose keystone species in the environments where they live. #Quote by Jeff Corwin
Animal quotes by Lewis Thomas
#114. Animals, even plants, lie to each other all the time, and we could restrict the research to them, putting off the real truth about ourselves for the several centuries we need to catch our breath. What is it that enables certain flowers to resemble nubile insects, or opossums to play dead, or female fireflies to change the code of their flashes in order to attract, and then eat, males of a different species? #Quote by Lewis Thomas
Animal quotes by Astley Cooper
#115. Nothing is known in our profession by guess; and I do not believe, that from the first dawn of medical science to the present moment, a single correct idea has ever emanated from conjecture: it is right therefore, that those who are studying their profession should be aware that there is no short road to knowledge; and that observation on the diseased living, examination of the dead, and experiments upon living animals, are the only sources of true knowledge; and that inductions from these are the sole bases of legitimate theory. #Quote by Astley Cooper
Animal quotes by Cassandra Clare
#116. What is this?" he went on now, spearing an unfortunate object on a fork and raising it to eye level. "This ... this ... thing?"
"A parsnip?" Jem suggested.
"A parsnip planted in Satan's own garden." said Will. He glanced about. "I don't suppose there's a dog I could feed it to."
"There don't seem to be any pets about," Jem - who loved all animals, even the inglorious and ill-tempered Church - observed.
"Probably all poisoned by parsnips," said Will. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Animal quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#117. The eternal being which, as it lives in us, also lives in every animal ... the animal is in essence absolutely the same thing that we are.

- On Religion #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Animal quotes by Ric O'Barry
#118. In a world where so much that is wild and free has been lost to us, we must leave these beautiful animals free to swim as they will and must. They do us no harm and wish us none and we should let them alone. #Quote by Ric O'Barry
Animal quotes by Dennis Bardens
#119. The combined outrage of the millions of creatures which have suffered at the hands of man may well combine to haunt us. We are all of the same family, though destiny has assigned us to different roles: in our relationship with animals, we should regard them as different, not inferior. #Quote by Dennis Bardens
Animal quotes by Gary A. Kowalski
#120. It is not just that animals make the world more scenic or picturesque. The lives of animals are woven into our very being - closer than our own breathing - and our soul will suffer when they are gone. #Quote by Gary A. Kowalski
Animal quotes by Steven Morrissey
#121. Animals are nicer than humans and they're conscious beings. If you stick your grandmother in an oven, she will probably be tasty. But is that any reason to eat your grandmother? #Quote by Steven Morrissey
Animal quotes by Michael Thomas Ford
#122. When she saw me, my mother stood up and started to come toward me, but then stopped. I think maybe Cat Poop had told her not to make any sudden movements because they might scare me, like I'm a wild animal or something, because she kept looking at him and then at me. Finally she just said, "Hello, Jeff," and sat down again next to my father. #Quote by Michael Thomas Ford
Animal quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#123. Love the animals: God has given them the rudiments of thought and joy untroubled. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Animal quotes by Michael G. Cordingley
#124. The accelerating pace of zoonotic transmission of novel viruses into humans is attributable to anthropogenic epidemiologic factors. Only behavior modification or medical management of this future health burden will minimize the risks of future zoonoses for human populations. #Quote by Michael G. Cordingley
Animal quotes by Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya
#125. If a man's patience is stronger than his whims and desires, then he is like an angel, but if his whims and desires are stronger than his patience, then he is like a devil. If his desire for food, drink and sex is stronger than his patience, then he is no better than an animal. #Quote by Ibn Qayyim Al-Jawziyya
Animal quotes by Lilian Jackson Braun
#126. People who really appreciated animals always asked their names. #Quote by Lilian Jackson Braun
Animal quotes by John Ruskin
#127. There is in every animal's eye a dim image and gleam of humanity, a flash of strange light through which their life looks out and up to our great mystery of command over them, and claims the fellowship of the creature if not of the soul. #Quote by John Ruskin
Animal quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#128. Most moral philosophers consciously or unconsciously assume the essential correctness of our cultural sexual code - family, monogamy, continence, the postulate of privacy, ... restriction of intercourse to the marriage bed, etcetera. Having stipulated our cultural code as a whole, they fiddle with details - even such piffle as solemnly discussing whether or not the female breast is an "obscene" sight! But mostly they debate how the human animal can be induced or forced to obey this code, blandly ignoring the high probability that the heartaches and tragedies they see all around them originate in the code itself rather than the failure to abide by the code. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Animal quotes by J.R. Ward
#129. Butch clapped V on the thigh, then stood up, as if he knew exactly what V was thinking. "Listen, I don't want you to feel bad. It's my animal magnetism. I'm irresistible."
"Smart-ass. #Quote by J.R. Ward
Animal quotes by Jared Taylor
#130. 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 quotes by Jack Wintz
#131. For One or More Sick Creatures Heavenly Creator, you made all things for your glory and made us caretakers of this creature (these creatures) under our care. Restore to health and strength this animal (this pet) that you have entrusted to us. Keep this animal (this pet) always under your loving protection. Blessed are you, Lord God, And holy is your name for ever and ever. Amen. #Quote by Jack Wintz
Animal quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#132. Only humans kill with hate. When you kill, you must kill like an animal. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Animal quotes by Kage Baker
#133. 1925's 'The Lost World' is ... really, everything a dinosaur movie should be. Like a dinosaur, this classic was once extinct too, existing as mere fragmentary footage and stills, but cinemaphile fossil-hunters have painstakingly excavated bits and pieces from obscure archives and assembled them into a nearly-complete animal. #Quote by Kage Baker
Animal quotes by Will Tuttle
#134. Now, knowing better, we can act better, we can live better, and give the animals, our children and ourselves a true reason for hope and celebration. #Quote by Will Tuttle
Animal quotes by Catherine Lacey
#135. not think about time or plans or deadlines or that rust spot in my old shower that bothered me so much or that wild animal with all the teeth charging toward me called the future, #Quote by Catherine Lacey
Animal quotes by Anna Kavan
#136. It's lonely? Sure, it's lonely. That's what you asked for, didn't you? After all, if you hadn't been too superior for the gang, you wouldn't be here. And think how much more distinguished it is to be on your own, or with one or two individualists like yourself, than to be an ordinary gregarious animal going about with the herd. #Quote by Anna Kavan
Animal quotes by William Shakespeare
#137. Sir, he hath not fed of the dainties that are bred in a book; He hath not eat paper, as it were; he hath not drunk ink; his intellect is not replenished; he is only an animal, only sensible in the duller parts ... (Act IV, Scene II) #Quote by William Shakespeare
Animal quotes by Kevin Kelly
#138. There is no "I" for a person, for a beehive, for a corporation, for an animal, for a nation, for any living thing. The "I" of a vivisystem is a ghost, an ephemeral shroud. #Quote by Kevin Kelly
Animal quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#139. But I also knew that there was no going back. One can never go back; nothing and no one is ever the same. All that remained was an occasional evening of sadness, the sadness that we all feel because everything passes and because man is the only animal who knows it. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Animal quotes by H.G.Wells
#140. ...whatever is more than animal within us must find its solace and it's hope. I HOPE, or I would not live. #Quote by H.G.Wells
Animal quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#141. Although in truth her passivity was calculated, because she knew passivity inflamed him. He had her, and to some extent she wanted to be had, like an animal: in a mute mutual privacy of violence. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Animal quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#142. If there were no hell, we would be like the animals. No hell, no dignity. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Animal quotes by Jalaluddin Rumi
#143. Beyond this world is another world for us. This world and its delights cater to the animal within us. These pleasures all fill our animal nature, while our real self slowly dies. They say, "The human being is a rational animal," yet we consist of two things. Lusts and desires feed our animality in this material world. But as for our true essence, its food is knowledge, wisdom, and the sight of God. The animality within us flees away from God, while our spiritual self flees away from this world. #Quote by Jalaluddin Rumi
Animal quotes by Adam Pepper
#144. partially digested. Like someone ate them from the inside out."
The room went silent for a minute, then I said, "That is creepy."
"I'll say," Vic said with a nod.
"Maybe some kind of animal ate the body parts, after they were dead," I suggested.
"Yeah, sure, I'd say it was a gerbil but it's the wrong hole," Tate said. #Quote by Adam Pepper
Animal quotes by Andrew Linzey
#145. Despite one or two minority appeals our society is not outraged at man's unremitting use of the animal world. Ecologists and environmentalists may talk of "ecological consciousness" or "environmental responsibility" but seldom, if ever, is this responsibility articulated towards other non-human species in particular. #Quote by Andrew Linzey
Animal quotes by Ali MacGraw
#146. Cruelty to animals can become violence to humans. #Quote by Ali MacGraw
Animal quotes by Philip Levine
#147. Oh, yes, let's bless the imagination. It gives us the myths we live by. Let's bless the visionary power of the human - the only animal that's got it - , bless the exact image of your father dead and mine dead, bless the images that stalk the corners of our sight and will not let go. #Quote by Philip Levine
Animal quotes by Daisy Johnson
#148. The places we are born come back to us. They disguise themselves as words, memory loss, nightmares. They are the way we sometimes wake with a pressure on our chests that is animal-like or turn on a light and see someone we'd thought was long gone standing there looking at us. #Quote by Daisy Johnson
Animal quotes by Dag Hammarskjold
#149. Your cravings as a human animal do not become a prayer just because it is God whom you ask to attend to them. #Quote by Dag Hammarskjold
Animal quotes by Laura Wright
#150. She curled her tongue around the silver rings and tugged. It was as if she´d unleashed a wild animal. With that one simple movement, Jean-Baptiste´s face went from a sensual hunger to a mask of fierce,feline possessivness. He glared at her. Snarled at her. Sweat broke on his brow, his eyes flashed burnt gold and he looked ready to attack. Maybe she should´ve been scared. Or at least, cautious. But when she eased her tongue from the rings, she grinned.
"Lie back," he growled at her. "Now. #Quote by Laura Wright
Animal quotes by Maurice Sendak
#151. Art has always been my salvation. And my gods are Herman Melville, Emily Dickinson, Mozart. I believe in them with all my heart. And when Mozart is playing in my room, I am in conjunction with something I can't explain - I don't need to. I know that if there's a purpose for life, it was for me to hear Mozart. Or if I walk in the woods and I see an animal, the purpose of my life was to see that animal. I can recollect it, I can notice it. I'm here to take note of. And that is beyond my ego, beyond anything that belongs to me, an observer, an observer. #Quote by Maurice Sendak
Animal quotes by Hermann Hesse
#152. He lost his Self a thousand times and for days on end he dwelt in non-being. But although the paths took him away from Self, in the end they always led back to it. Although Siddhartha fled from the Self a thousand times, dwelt in nothing, dwelt in animal and stone, the return was inevitable; the hour was inevitable when he would again find himself in sunshine or in moonlight, in shadow or in rain, and was again Self and Siddhartha, again felt the torment of the onerous life cycle. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Animal quotes by Kelly LeBrock
#153. If you want to be a party animal, you have to learn to live in the jungle. #Quote by Kelly LeBrock
Animal quotes by T. Colin Campbell
#154. But if I tell them about dozens and dozens of studies showing that the countries with low rates of heart disease consume low amounts of animal-based foods, and dozens and dozens of studies showing that individuals who eat more whole, plant-based foods get less heart disease, and I go on to document still more studies showing that a diet low in animal-based foods and high in unprocessed plant-based foods can slow or reverse heart disease, then people are more inclined to pay some attention. #Quote by T. Colin Campbell
Animal quotes by Gautama Buddha
#155. It is more important to prevent animal suffering, rather than sit to contemplate the evils of the universe praying in the company of priests. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Animal quotes by Amy Miller
#156. Animal companions come into your life for an infinite number of reasons, each one being in service to you, your current life experience, and moreover, your soul's growth and evolution. #Quote by Amy Miller
Animal quotes by Jackson Landers
#157. Predation is so fundamental to nature that it seems absurd to demonize it for any animal, including humans. #Quote by Jackson Landers
Animal quotes by Jack Kornfield
#158. To live in this precious animal body on this earth is as great a part of spiritual life as anything else. #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Animal quotes by Herman Melville
#159. Hereby perhaps Stubb indirectly hinted, that though man loved his fellow, yet man is a money-making animal, which propensity too often interferes with his benevolence. #Quote by Herman Melville
Animal quotes by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko
#160. The plant and animal kingdoms (excluding humans) offered some pleasant surprises. Organisms from these realms are much simpler to figure out. Their behaviours are not muddied by personality factors or flawed belief systems. If an insect smells like a fart, you can be sure that the stench has a genetic basis. It is neither trying to make a lofty point, nor is it suffering from an inferiority complex. #Quote by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko
Animal quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#161. Man is a talking animal and he will always let himself be swayed by the power of the word. Machines won't change human nature. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Animal quotes by Brian Tracy
#162. If you like a person you say 'let's go into business together.' Man is a social animal after all, but such partnerships are fraught with danger. #Quote by Brian Tracy
Animal quotes by Barbara Holland
#163. A catless writer is almost inconceivable. #Quote by Barbara Holland
Animal quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#164. The ethic of Reverence for Life prompts us to keep each other alert to what troubles us and to speak and act dauntlessly together in discharging the responsibility that we feel. It keeps us watching together for opportunities to bring some sort of help to animals in recompense for the great misery that men inflict upon them, and thus for a moment we escape from the incomprehensible horror of existence. #Quote by Albert Schweitzer
Animal quotes by Francis Chan
#165. I love being in the ocean. I love the unpredictability of it- size of wave, animals you see, etc. #Quote by Francis Chan
Animal quotes by Anatole France
#166. Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened. #Quote by Anatole France
Animal quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#167. Probe the universe in a myriad of points ... He is a wise man who has taken many views; to whom stones and plants and animals and a myriad of objects have each suggesting something, contributed something. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Animal quotes by David M. Raup
#168. There are millions of different species of animals and plants on earth
possibly as many as forty million. But somewhere between five and fifty BILLION species have existed at one time or another. Thus, only about one in a thousand species is still alive
a truly lousy survival record: 99.9 percent failure! #Quote by David M. Raup
Animal quotes by George Orwell
#169. THE SEVEN COMMANDMENTS Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend. No animal shall wear clothes. No animal shall sleep in a bed. No animal shall drink alcohol. No animal shall kill any other animal. All animals are equal. #Quote by George Orwell
Animal quotes by Horace Walpole
#170. Oh, we are ridiculous animals; and if the angels have any fun in them, how we must divert them! #Quote by Horace Walpole
Animal quotes by Steve Ells
#171. We decided long ago that we didn't want Chipotle's success to be tied to the exploitation of animals, farmers, or the environment, but the engagement of our customers. #Quote by Steve Ells
Animal quotes by Richard Kadrey
#172. I'd like to think they're staring at me because of my white-hot animal magnetism, but I'm not Elvis. I'm Lobster Boy, hear me roar. #Quote by Richard Kadrey
Animal quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#173. Plants do everything animals do, but slowly. They migrate, communicate, deceive, stalk their food and, with an ostentation of styles and perfumes to put the animal kingdom to shame, they make love. It's just that catching them in flagrante delicto might require time-lapse photography. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Animal quotes by Albert Einstein
#174. Man owes his strength in the struggle for existence to the fact that he is a social animal. #Quote by Albert Einstein

#175. 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 quotes by Michael Fox
#176. Man is the most dangerous, destructive, selfish, and unethical animal on earth. #Quote by Michael Fox
Animal quotes by John Ray
#177. There is no doubt, that man is not built to be a carnivorous animal. What a sweet, pleasing and innocent sight is the spectacle of a table served that way and what a difference to a make up of fuming animal meat, slaughtered and dead! Man in no way has the constitution of a carnivorous being. Hunt and voracity are unnatural to him. Man has neither the sharp pointed teeth or claws to slaughter his prey. On the contrary his hands are made to pick fruits, berries and vegetables and teeth appropriate to chew them. #Quote by John Ray
Animal quotes by Mango Wodzak
#178. Remember at all time that just as your life is precious to you, so too is all life precious to those living one. #Quote by Mango Wodzak
Animal quotes by Lyndon LaRouche
#179. The ruling British elite are like animals
not only in their morality, but in their outlook on knowledge. They are clever animals, who are masters of the wicked nature of their own species, and recognize ferally the distinctions of the hated human species. Nonetheless, obsessively dedicated to being such animals, they can not [sic] assimilate those qualities unique to true human beings. #Quote by Lyndon LaRouche
Animal quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#180. Humans are the only animals that have children on purpose with the exception of guppies, who like to eat theirs. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke
Animal quotes by Charles Darwin
#181. I fully subscribe to the judgement of those writers who maintain that of all the differences between man and the lower animal, the moral sense of conscience is by far the most important ... It is the most noble of all the attributes of man. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Animal quotes by Abraham Myerson
#182. We need a way of life in which the animal, guided by reason, may romp but will not bite. #Quote by Abraham Myerson
Animal quotes by Hal Borland
#183. Of all the everyday plants of the earth, grass is the least pretentious and the most important to mankind. It clothes the earth is an unmistakable way. Directly or indirectly it provides the bulk of man's food, his meat, his bread, every scrap of his cereal diet. Without grass we would all starve, we and all our animals. And what a dismal place this world would be! #Quote by Hal Borland
Animal quotes by John Steinbeck
#184. One of the laws of paleontology is that an animal which must protect itself with thick armour is degenerate. It is usually a sign that the species is on the road to extinction. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Animal quotes by Carl Linnaeus
#185. There are some viviparous flies, which bring forth 2,000 young. These in a little time would fill the air, and like clouds intercept the rays of the sun, unless they were devoured by birds, spiders, and many other animals. #Quote by Carl Linnaeus
Animal quotes by Mary Midgley
#186. Darwin proposed that creatures like us who, by their nature, are riven by strong emotional conflicts, and who have also the intelligence to be aware of those conflicts, absolutely need to develop a morality because they need a priority system by which to resolve them. The need for morality is a corollary of conflicts plus intellect:

'Man, from the activity of his mental faculties, cannot avoid reflection. . . . Any animal whatever, endowed with well-marked social instincts, would inevitably acquire a moral sense or conscience as soon as its intellectual powers had become as well-developed, or anything like as well-developed as in man.' - Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man

That (he said) is why we have within us the rudiments of such a priority system and why we have also an intense need to develop those rudiments. We try to shape our moralities in accordance with our deepest wishes so that we can in some degree harmonize our muddled and conflict-ridden emotional constitution, thus finding ourselves a way of life that suits it so far as is possible.

These systems are, therefore, something far deeper than mere social contracts made for convenience. They are not optional. They are a profound attempt -- though of course usually an unsuccessful one -- to shape our conflict-ridden life in a way that gives priority to the things that we care about most.

If this is right, then we are creatures whose evolved nature absolutely requires that w #Quote by Mary Midgley
Animal quotes by Frances Beinecke
#187. Climate change has the potential to affect everything we care about - whether it is the health of our families, the stability of our communities, or the fate of the wild animals. #Quote by Frances Beinecke
Animal quotes by Homer
#188. Guns aren't toys! They're for family protection, hunting dangerous or delicious animals, and keeping the King of England out of your face! #Quote by Homer
Animal quotes by Evan Esar
#189. The cat: an animal that's so unpredictable, you can never tell in advance how it will ignore you the next time. #Quote by Evan Esar
Animal quotes by Ingrid Newkirk
#190. Seriously, I think everybody needs to be more disciplined; nobody needs any meat. But from a perspective of how many animals suffer, it's probably better to kill and eat one whale than it is to eat fish, chickens, cows, lambs and eggs. #Quote by Ingrid Newkirk
Animal quotes by Sydney J. Harris
#191. If you treat someone under your control like a dolt, he will react like a dolt; treat him like an animal, and he will respond like an animal; treat him as an object of contempt, and he will become filled with a self-contempt that must sooner or later erupt in rage, hate and violence. #Quote by Sydney J. Harris
Animal quotes by Carl Sagan
#192. If chimpanzees have consciousness, if they are capable of abstractions, do they not have what until now has been described as 'human rights'? How smart does a chimp have to be before killing him constitutes murder? #Quote by Carl Sagan
Animal quotes by Aristotle.
#193. Man is by nature a political animal. #Quote by Aristotle.
Animal quotes by Jill Shalvis
#194. An injured dog, a sick kitten, a horse in labor, it didn't matter... Dell gave his heart and soul, and in less time than it took humans to shake hands, an animal would become part of Dell's pack for life. #Quote by Jill Shalvis
Animal quotes by Rudolf Steiner
#195. He remembers that it was said to him, "Our ancestors were animal forms." But he does not remember that these forms were gods. This is the psychological basis for the emergence of Darwinism. #Quote by Rudolf Steiner
Animal quotes by Mango Wodzak
#196. After you have witnessed the reality, you can no longer look at a piece of steak, and simply think "yum". #Quote by Mango Wodzak
Animal quotes by William Hazlitt
#197. Man is an intellectual animal, and therefore an everlasting contradiction to himself. His senses centre in himself, his ideas reach to the ends of the universe; so that he is torn in pieces between the two, without a possibility of its ever being otherwise. #Quote by William Hazlitt
Animal quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#198. Happiness must be a jealous pet. When you try seeking yours out, it tends to keep hidden. But as soon as you turn to help a friend find his, your own happiness comes bounding out of the darkness like some crazed animal. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Animal quotes by Owen Wilson
#199. There's something people find hilarious about dogs surfing and dancing and talking in the movies. I think it's nice for people - I think it's wish fulfillment - to see animals talking. #Quote by Owen Wilson
Animal quotes by Bob Torres
#200. What, then, is the solution to this moral schizophrenia we have about animals? According to Francione, we only have two choices: we either continue to treat animals as we are now, by inflicting suf­fering even for unnecessary ends and recognizing our commitment to humane treatment as a farce, or we can recognize that animals have a morally significant interest in not being subjected to unnecessary suffering, and change how we approach conflicts of animal and hu­man interests. To do the latter, however, requires that we apply the principle of equal consideration to animals. This, Francione argues, is stunningly simple: in its most basic terms, we need to treat like cases alike. Though animals and humans are clearly different, they are alike in the sense that they both suffer and are both sentient. For this reason, we should extend the principle of equal consideration to animals. #Quote by Bob Torres
