GREAT ANIMAL RIGHTS QUOTES…

“In all the round world of Utopia there is no meat. There used to be. But now we cannot stand the thought of slaughterhouses. And, in a population that is all educated, and at about the same level of physical refinement, it is practically impossible to find anyone who will hew a dead ox or pig … I can still remember as a boy the rejoicings over the closing of the last slaughterhouse.”
— HG Wells. A Modern Utopia

“In all the round world of Utopia there is no meat. There used to be. But now we cannot stand the thought of slaughterhouses. And, in a population that is all educated, and at about the same level of physical refinement, it is practically impossible to find anyone who will hew a dead ox or pig … I can still remember as a boy the rejoicings over the closing of the last slaughterhouse.”– HG Wells. A Modern Utopia

“You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity.”

— Ralph Waldo Emerson, essayist

“What I think about vivisection is that if people admit that they have the right to take or endanger the life of living beings for the benefit of many, there will be no limit to their cruelty.”
— Leo Tolstoy, author
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
“To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being.”
— Mahatma Gandhi, statesman and philosopher
“Our task must be to free ourselves . . . by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.”
“Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of survival for life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”
— Albert Einstein, physicist, Nobel 1921
“For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.”
— Pythagoras, mathematician
“What is it that should trace the insuperable line? …The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?”
“The day may come when the rest of the animal creation may acquire those rights which never could have been withholden from them but by the hand of tyranny.”
— Jeremy Bentham, philosopher
“Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.”
— Thomas Edison, inventor
“To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime.”
— Romain Rolland, author, Nobel 1915
“I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being.”
— Abraham Lincoln, 16th U.S. President
“If a group of beings from another planet were to land on Earth — beings who considered themselves as superior to you as you feel yourself to be to other animals — would you concede them the rights over you that you assume over other animals?”
— George Bernard Shaw, playwright, Nobel 1925
“The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men.”
— Alice Walker
“In their behavior toward creatures, all men are Nazis. Human beings see oppression vividly when they’re the victims. Otherwise they victimize blindly and without a thought.”
— Isaac Bashevis Singer, author, Nobel 1978
“Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.”
— Thomas Jefferson, 3rd U.S. President

    I want to help, how I can??

    • TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU KNOW, tell people what you have seen, watch the horrible videos that none of us want to see, don’t look away and SHOW AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN what you know and what you’ve seen… ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO DO NOT WANT TO SEE OR HEAR THIS STUFF. tell them that turning the blind eye & deaf ear of ignorance to this reality will NOT make it stop, it will only enable it to continue & therefor makes them responsible for that which is “too upsetting” for them to see hear or know about… Ask them if they doubt whether the animals whose only reality is that which is “too upsetting to hear or see” might find it upsetting to them as well.

      Good luck & best wishes. THANK YOU for caring.

    These photos are so sad and it’s so sad that animals have been suffering so long at the hands of humans. I am a vegertarian and now a Vegan, i try really hard to find animal free products such as clothing and non leather, wool items, etc. I also am an advocate and a activist, i try to go to protests as much as i can and educate people to help stop animal abuse. Do you have a website or what is the name of your organization and what is your name? Please send me an email and please keep up the good work of spreading information like this. Thank you. Alison Sterling
