Descartes Animals quotes by Alex Shakar
#1. Cats are there to be indulged. That's their function: to receive the love we never fully gave our parents. Not like dogs. Dogs are there to give us the love and devotion our children will never fully give us. #Quote by Alex Shakar
Descartes Animals quotes by Lierre Keith
#2. Inhabitants of urban industrial cultures have no point of contact with grain, chickens, cows, or, for that matter, with topsoil. We have no basis of experience to outweigh the arguments of political vegetarians. We have no idea what plants, animals, or soil eat, or how much. Which means we have no idea what we ourselves are eating. #Quote by Lierre Keith
Descartes Animals quotes by Karl Lagerfeld
#3. In a meat-eating world, wearing leather for shoes and even clothes, the discussion of fur is childish. #Quote by Karl Lagerfeld
Descartes Animals quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#4. Without animals, there would be no humanity. In a world of just people, people will mean nothing ... #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Descartes Animals quotes by Yann Martel
#5. We commonly say in the trade that the most dangerous animal in a zoo is Man. #Quote by Yann Martel
Descartes Animals quotes by Stephen King
#6. Here was a boy who was now ashamed of being a boy. He had made a friend and the friend had invited him to stay over, as friends sometimes do. Benny had undoubtedly promised that Jake could help him feed the animals, and perhaps shoot his bow (or his bah, if it shot bolts instead of arrows). There would be places Benny would want to share,secret places he might have gone to with his twin in other times. A platform in a tree, mayhap, or a fishpond in the reeds special to him, or a stretch of riverbank where pirates of eld were reputed to have buried gold and jewels. Such places as boys go. But a large part of Jake Chambers was now ashamed to want to do such things. This was the part that had been despoiled by the doorkeeper in Dutch Hill, by Gasher, by the Tick-Tock Man. And by Roland himself, of course.Were he to say no to Jake's request now, the boy would very likely never ask again. And never resent him for it, which was even worse. Were he to say yes in the wrong way - with even the slightest trace of indulgence in his voice, for instance - the boy would change his mind. #Quote by Stephen King
Descartes Animals quotes by Irene M. Pepperberg
#7. Clearly, animals know more than we think, and think a great deal more than we know. #Quote by Irene M. Pepperberg
Descartes Animals quotes by C. G. Jung
#8. Words are animals, alive with a will of their own #Quote by C. G. Jung
Descartes Animals quotes by Daniel Quinn
#9. All paths lie together in the hand of god like a web endlessly woven, and yours and mine are no greater or less than the beetle's or the squirrel's or the sparrow's. All are held together. #Quote by Daniel Quinn
Descartes Animals quotes by Tatiana March
#10. Slowly, Joaquin leaned in, drawn closer to her against his will. Pursing his lips, he breathed warm air across her cheeks, like animals do when they learn each other's scent, learn to trust. "Easy now," he whispered in between the soft puffs of air. "Let go of the fear."
"I can't," she said, in a little broken voice that clenched at his heart.
"Yes you can." Joaquin let his lips touch her skin, the merest hint of a contact. She made a tiny sound of alarm, a cross between a sob and a cry. He brushed his mouth against hers. A shudder shook her body, but she pressed into him, seeking his shelter. Keeping his hands braced to the timber, he deepened the kiss. His mouth slanted over hers, bolder now.
Her hands rose between them and fisted into his shirt. #Quote by Tatiana March
Descartes Animals quotes by Nancy J Cavanaugh
#11. Shade for a man
And shelter for animals,
Planted in your name,
May you be the same for those around you,
Every year the same. #Quote by Nancy J Cavanaugh
Descartes Animals quotes by Charles Darwin
#12. We feel surprise when travellers tell us of the vast dimensions of the Pyramids and other great ruins, but how utterly insignificant are the greatest of these, when compared to these mountains of stone accumulated by the agency of various minute and tender animals! #Quote by Charles Darwin
Descartes Animals quotes by Amish Tripathi
#13. Civilisation is very fragile. All it takes is a few decades of chaos for us to forget humanity and turn into animals. #Quote by Amish Tripathi
Descartes Animals quotes by Marc Davis
#14. It wasn't a problem for me drawing humans although I had originally come to the studio with the idea that what I had to offer them was my knowledge in the drawing of animals. #Quote by Marc Davis
Descartes Animals quotes by Alistair Urquhart
#15. Life is worth living and no matter what it throws at you it is important to keep your eyes on the prize of the happiness that will come. Even when the Death Railway reduced us to little more than animals, humanity in the shape of our saintly medical officers triumphed over barbarism.
Remember, while it always seems darkest before the dawn, perseverance pays off and the good times will return. #Quote by Alistair Urquhart
Descartes Animals quotes by Lex Bayer
#16. In order to determine whether we can know anything with certainty, we first have to doubt everything we know. - Descartes #Quote by Lex Bayer
Descartes Animals quotes by Peter Hoeg
#17. When we say 'time', I believe we mean at least two things. We mean changes. And we mean something unchangeable. We mean something that moves . but against an unmoving background. And vice versa.
Animals can sense changes. But consciousness of time involves the double sense of constancy and change. Which can only be attributed to those who give expression to it. And that can only be done through language, and only man has language.
The perception of time and language are inextricably bound up with one another. #Quote by Peter Hoeg
Descartes Animals quotes by Mary Tyler Moore
#18. But I'm very happy with my life the way it has been turning out. A little time in the country, a little time with the animals and working on behalf of them. #Quote by Mary Tyler Moore
Descartes Animals quotes by Epictetus
#19. Thus Epicurus also, when he designs to destroy the natural fellowship of mankind, at the same time makes use of that which he destroys.

For what does he say? 'Be not deceived, men, nor be led astray, nor be mistaken: there is no natural fellowship among rational animals; believe me. But those who say otherwise, deceive you and seduce you by false reasons.' - What is this to you? Permit us to be deceived.

Will you fare worse, if all the rest of us are persuaded that there is a natural fellowship among us, and that it ought by all means to be preserved? Nay, it will be much better and safer for you.

Man, why do you trouble yourself about us? Why do you keep awake for us? Why do you light your lamp? Why do you rise early? Why do you write so many books, that no one of us may be deceived about the gods and believe that they take care of men; or that no one may suppose the nature of good to be other than pleasure?

For if this is so, lie down and sleep, and lead the life of a worm, of which you judged yourself worthy: eat and drink, and enjoy women, and ease yourself, and snore.

And what is it to you, how the rest shall think about these things, whether right or wrong? For what have we to do with you?

You take care of sheep because they supply us with wool and milk, and last of all with their flesh. Would it not be a desirable thing if men could be lulled and enchanted by the Stoics, and sleep and present themselves #Quote by Epictetus
Descartes Animals quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#20. When his father told him about his alarm at having forgotten even the most impressive happenings of his childhood, Aureliano explained his method to him […] with an inked brush he marked everything with its name: table, chair, clock, door, wall, bed, pan. He went to the corral and marked the animals and plants: cow, goat, pig, hen, cassava, caladium, banana. Little by little, studying the infinite possibilities of a loss of memory, he realized that the day might come when things would be recognized by their inscriptions but that no one would remember their use. Then he was more explicit. The sign that he hung on the neck of the cow was an exemplary proof of the way in which the inhabitants of Macondo were prepared to fight against loss of memory: "This is the cow. She must be milked every morning so that she will produce milk, and the milk must be boiled in order to be mixed with coffee to make coffee and milk." Thus they went on living in a reality that was slipping away, momentarily captured by words, but which would escape irremediably when they forgot the values of the written letters. (3.14) #Quote by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Descartes Animals quotes by Carl Sagan
#21. Humans - who enslave, castrate, experiment on, and fillet other animals - have had an understandable penchant for pretending animals do not feel pain. A sharp distinction between humans and 'animals' is essential if we are to bend them to our will, make them work for us, wear them, eat them - without any disquieting tinges of guilt or regret. It is unseemly of us, who often behave so unfeelingly toward other animals, to contend that only humans can suffer. The behavior of other animals renders such pretensions specious. They are just too much like us. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Descartes Animals quotes by Marc Maron
#22. We're built to deal with death, disease, failure, struggle, heartbreak, problems. It's what separates us from the animals and why we envy and love animals so much. We're aware of it all and have to process it. The way we each handle being human is where all the good stories, jokes, art, wisdom, revelations, and bullshit come from. #Quote by Marc Maron
Descartes Animals quotes by Gary L. Francione
#23. It's really not rocket science. If animals are not mere things; if they have moral value, we cannot justify eating, wearing, or using them particularly when we have no better reason than palate pleasure or fashion. If you are eating, wearing, or using animals, then your actions say that you regard them as mere things, despite what your words say. #Quote by Gary L. Francione
Descartes Animals quotes by Neil Shubin
#24. Take the entire 4.5-billion-year history of the earth and scale it down to a single year, with January 1 being the origin of the earth and midnight on December 31 being the present. Until June, the only organisms were single-celled microbes, such as algae, bacteria, and amoebae. The first animal with a head did not appear until October. The first human appears on December 31. We, like all the animals and plants that have ever lived, are recent crashers at the party of life on earth. #Quote by Neil Shubin
Descartes Animals quotes by Lars Fr. H. Svendsen
#25. Animals can be understimulated, but hardly bored. #Quote by Lars Fr. H. Svendsen
Descartes Animals quotes by Plato
#26. And once we have given our community a good start,' I pointed out, ' the process will be cumulative. By maintaining a sound system of education you produce citizens of good character, and citizens of sound character, with the advantage of a good education, produce in turn children better than themselves and better able to produce still better children in their turn, as can be seen with animals. #Quote by Plato
Descartes Animals quotes by Jamais Cascio
#27. Human beings are social animals; we devote a significant portion of our brain just to dealing with interactions with other humans. #Quote by Jamais Cascio
Descartes Animals quotes by Sami Mattila
#28. We say that cruelty to animals is bad
but we kill animals for food every day.

We say extortion of money is bad
but it's good to pay your taxes.

We say killing is bad
but a soldier who kills is a good patriot.

We say drugs are bad
but in a hospital they are good.

Hypocrisy. We say you can't do this, only we can.
When you do it it's a crime but when we do it it's a good thing.

We are hypocrites, we say you suffer from schizophrenia but the truth is we are the insane ones. #Quote by Sami Mattila
Descartes Animals quotes by James Patterson
#29. For me, "Zoo" has always been a fable. It has nothing to do with realism. It's a fable about what man is doing to the world, and the animals have retribution. But in the real world, this would not happen. But in the world of 1984, this kind of thing can happen in a story. #Quote by James Patterson
Descartes Animals quotes by Flora Sandes
#30. Cruelty is absolutely foreign to their natures.Some people once talked of setting up a branch of the " Prevention of Cruelty to Animals" in Serbia, and were asked in astonishment what work they supposed they would find to do ; who ever heard of a Serbian being cruel to child or animal? #Quote by Flora Sandes
