Hunting Is A Coward’s Pastime

I think ‘vegan’ is a beautiful word.. It is more than just a description for our diet.. I see it as a visible template for an ethical, healthy, responsible, and rational life.. Because it describes our character, it says we do not take the life of another living being to satisfy our wants.
( Philip Wollen )

It makes no sense to go through an animal to get to the nutrients that the animal gets because the animal ate plants.
( Colleen Patrick-Goudreau )

Milk Comes From Grieving Mothers…
All cows used for milk production are torn from their babies shortly after birth.. Some try to fight off the attackers, some try to shield their babies with their own bodies, some chase frantically after the transport, some cry pitifully, some withdraw in silent despair.. They all beg for their babies in a language that requires no translation.. They bellow, they cry, they moan.. Many continue to call for their babies for days and nights on end.. Some stop eating and drinking.. Some withdraw in silent grief.. Their baby girls will be raised to replace their own ‘spent’ mothers, their baby boys will be killed for veal.
After repeated cycles of forced impregnations, painful births, relentless milking, and crushing bereavements, their spirit gives, their body withers, their milk dries up.. At the age when, in nature, a female cow would barely enter adulthood, the life of a dairy cow is over.. When her milk ‘production’ declines, she and her other ‘spent’ herd mates are trucked off to be brutally slaughtered.. Some are pregnant.. All are lactating.. As they are shoved towards their death, they drip milk onto the killing floor.

Destruction of Nature, and Nature’s resources, result from ignorance, greed, and lack of respect for the Earth’s living things.
( Dalai Lama )

So far as animals are concerned the Tories are the nastiest party the country’s ever seen.. One of our defining characteristics used to be our love of animals.. Now it looks like we are in danger of electing a party that is for elephant poaching, fox hunting and the use of wild animals in circuses.. I despair.
( Peter Egan )

Chewing gum thrown on the ground looks like bread to birds, which try and eat it.. It fouls their entire systems and prevents them ingesting any real nourishment or water.. So they die slowly.

Fact: Hunting is a coward’s pastime.
( Roger Moore )

They’re abusement parks.. How much longer must highly intelligent and self-aware individuals suffer before we understand that other species are not on this earth for our amusement ? .. It’s clear to anyone with a brain and an ounce of compassion that marine parks are nothing more than concrete prisons which cause captive marine animals a world of suffering.. Orcas at these facilities are forced total day after day, repeating the same endless tasks with no choice in the matter and no means of escape.. How utterly miserable their lives must be.. The only way to end the abuse of captive orcas and other marine animals is to stay away from and speak out against facilities that keep them captive.
( Roger Moore )

In a world with boundless opportunities for amusement, it’s detestable that anyone would choose to get thrills from killing others who ask for nothing from life but the chance to remain alive.. The animals whose lives have been so cold-heartedly snuffed out have precisely the same capacity to feel pain and suffer as we do.. All leave family members or mates behind when they are killed, and none is exempt from grief.. We know that we should protect the most vulnerable and helpless in society, not destroy them, much less derive pleasure from doing so.. Thankfully, those of us with a conscience are appalled by the idea of gunning down animals for the sake of a thrill or a photo.
( Roger Moore )

As a child I never imagined that all of the real monsters in the world would be humans.

People pray to God for mercy and justice but continue to eat the flesh of animals that are slaughtered solely for their gustatory desires.. I fail to understand why the masses believe it’s okay to bring gentle animals into the world with the sole intention of hurting them and then brutally killing them.
( R.S. Hutchison )

Every year the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services kills thousands of animals, including foxes, bobcats, bears and coyotes.. Typically carried out at the behest of the agricultural industry, it’s an ugly enterprise that relies on poisons, painful traps, strangulation snares and helicopter gunners.. This sickening government program killed more than one million native animals in the United States last year.

Why do people who say they love animals call some of them ‘pets’ and some of them ‘dinner’ ?

What, or who, gives us the right or the authority to imprison animals who have committed no crime ?

You don’t have to be a detective to know that Ted Bundy, David Berkowitz and Jeffrey Dahmer all had something in common.. Each of them abused abused or killed animals before murdering humans.. Torturing animals is not innocent childhood behaviour, it is a chilling sign of violent acts to come.
( Peter Falk )

We Ignore Their Cries For Mercy

Being vegetarian is okay, and in fact we have the Hadith in Islam that encourages us to eat less meat.
( Mohammad Al-Shirazi, Islamic author and scholar )

I do feel that spiritual progress does demand at some stage that we should cease to kill our fellow creatures for the satisfaction of our bodily wants.
( Mahatma Gandhi )

It is necessary to correct the error that vegetarianism has made us weak in mind, or passive or inert in action.. I do not regard flesh-food as necessary at any stage.
( Mahatma Gandhi )

I do not see any reason why animals should be slaughtered to serve as human diet when there are so many substitutes.. After all, man can live without meat.
( The Dalai Lama )

I hold flesh-food to be unsuited to our species.. We err in copying the lower animal world if we are superior to it.
( Mahatma Gandhi )

I look my age.. It is the other people who look older than they are.. What can you expect from people who eat corpses ?
( George Bernard Shaw )

Oh, my fellow men, do not defile your bodies with sinful foods.. We have corn, we have apples bending down the branches with their weight, and grapes swelling on the vines.. There are sweet-flavoured herbs, and vegetables which can be cooked and softened over the fire, nor are you denied milk or thyme-scented honey.. The earth affords a lavish supply of riches, of innocent foods, and offers you banquets that involve no bloodshed or slaughter.. Only beasts satisfy their hunger with flesh, and not even all of those, because horses, cattle, and sheep live on grass.
( Pythagorus, c.570-c.495 )

I’m no shrinking violet.. I played hockey until half my teeth were knocked down my throat.. And I’m extremely competitive on a tennis court.. But that experience at the slaughter-house overwhelmed me.. When I walked out of there, I knew I would never again harm an animal.. I knew all the physiological, economic, and ecological arguments supporting vegetarianism, but it was first-hand experience of man’s cruelty to animals that laid the real groundwork for my commitment to vegetarianism.
( Peter Burwash )

He who, seeking his own happiness, punishes or kills beings who also long for happiness, will not find happiness after death.
( Buddhist Dhammapada )

We are all God’s creatures.. That we pray to God for mercy and justice while we continue to eat the flesh of animals that are slaughtered on our account is not consistent.
( Isaac Bashevis Singer )

Vegetarianism is a greater progress.. From the greater clearness of head and quicker apprehension motivated him to become a vegetarian..
( Benjamin Franklin )

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

To be non-violent to human beings and to be a killer or enemy of the poor animals is Satan’s philosophy.. In this age there is always enmity against poor animals, and therefore the poor creatures are always anxious.. The reaction of the poor animals is being forced on human society, and therefore there is always strain of cold or hot war between men, individually, collectively or nationally.
( A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, 1896-1977 )

Let him not destroy, or cause to be destroyed, any life at all, nor sanction the acts of those who do so.. Let him refrain from even hurting any creature, both those that are strong and those that tremble in the world.
( Suita-Nipata, Buddhist )

But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of that proportion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy.
( Plutarch, c.45-c.120 )

The man who regards his own life and that of his fellow creatures as meaningless is not merely unhappy but hardly fit for life.
( Albert Einstein )

The Prophet Himself Is Not Known To Have Partaken Cow Meat…
In his entire lifetime, the Prophet himself is not known to have partaken cow meat.. According to well known Islamic scholars, there is no Hadith available which confirms that the Prophet in fact ate beef.. However, there are a number of authenticated statements of the Prophet, which does confirm that beef, ie cow’s meat (also called bovine meat), contains illness, while the cow’s milk and fat contain cure and healing.
For example, Imam Suyuti in his al-Jami as-Saghir narrates that the Messenger of Allah said, “The milk of the bovine (cow) contains healing, its fat is a medicine, and its meat a cause for sickness.”.. Abu al-Qasim Sulaiman ibn Ahmad ibn Al-Tabarani, one of the most important Hadith scholars, referred to the aforementioned Hadith as authentic, and so did Bayhaqi in his Sunan and Hakim in his Mustadrak.
From Fatwa-e-Humayuni to Darul Mukhtiar to Maulana Hassan Nizami and Hakim Ajmal Khan, the message has been reiterated time and again that cow slaughter is not mandated in Islam, that poor Muslims are not obliged to offer sacrifice and that neither the Holy Quran or Arab traditions support cow sacrifice.. There have been many instances related to cow protection during the life and times of Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz Moinuddin Chishti of Ajmer.. Hazrat Hamiduddin Nagori of Rajasthan is said to have been a vegetarian all his life and entry to the Dargah after eating meat is explicitly prohibited even today.
What is debatable is the specious argument that beef eating is an integral part of Islamic lifestyle and, therefore, protests against cow slaughter is prejudicial to their freedom of religion and the right to choice of food.. A close perusal of Islamic texts, and views of noted Islamic scholars and clergy worldwide, reveal that, forget any prescription for eating beef, Islam does not prohibit vegetarianism.. In fact, there are well known devout Muslims who practice vegetarianism..  Hazrat Ali Ibn Abi Talib, the cousin and son-in-law of Prophet Muhammad, the fourth Khalifa as per Sunni belief, has been quoted in Sharh Nahjul Balagha, as saying, “Do not make your stomach a graveyard of animals”.

How brave and how proud we must be to abuse and terrorise defenceless animals from the day they are born, and then ignore their cries and their screams for mercy before we brutally slaughter them.
( R.S. Hutchison )

Someday They Won’t Be Laughing

As Earth warriors, we choose to be participants in the ancient battle between good and evil.. On our side stand the waters and wind, and all things wild and of the Earth.. On the other side, consumed with greed and in pursuit of power, control and money, stand all the dark forces that lay waste to Her.
( Rodney Adam Coronado )

Cruel Parade Of Mutants At Crufts…
Flat faced pugs and bulldogs (French or otherwise) a snorting and a snoring, apparently smiling you could surmise but, infact, are gasping not grinning.. Their airways compressed and a life expectancy of barely five years, the owner faces huge vet bills to keep them alive.. We breed them too short faced, too heavy, too small, too long faced, too wrinkly, too bald, too tall.. Sixty percent of dobermans die of genetic heart disease while pugs can’t reach round to clean themselves.. This year’s Crufts winner, an American cocker spaniel, named Afterglow Miami Ink, open to ridicule I think after coming first in ‘Best gundog’ with his long trailing coat, couldn’t retrieve a downed bird from a wide water filled moat.
( Ken Johnson, Sunderland Echo, 20.03.2017 )

All great movements, it is written, go through three stages..
Ridicule, discussion, adoption.
It is the realisation of this third stage, adoption, that requires our passion and our discipline, our hearts and our heads.. The fate of animals is in our hands.
( Tom Regan )

Increase In Number Of Otters…
By the late 1970s, British otters were mainly confined to north-west Scotland – Shetland still has 12% of the UK breeding population.. But now otters are no longer hunted (since the ban in 1978) and a reduction in the use of insecticides that accumulated in its food has greatly increased its numbers.. Less water is abstracted from rivers, which also helps and there is little or no use of their pelts.. There has also been habitat improvement work (even building artificial holts and ledges under bridges) and in some places otter tunnels under roads have greatly reduced road kills.. Otters are highly territorial animals with large home ranges.. Depending on the quality of the habitat and availability of food, males can range along rivers for 35km.. Sadly, otters will continue to try and use routes across busy roads if alternatives are not included in a mitigation strategy.. One authority recently stated that there were at least 8,000 otters in Scotland.. Otters have been spotted on the river Medway and the Eden in Kent and in Bristol, Birmingham and Manchester, on the Thames and the Lea in north London and in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne, though we must remember that some conservationists see these sightings as evidence of otters roaming further afield into cities due to food shortages rather than a big increase in numbers.. It’s not all good news for humans either.. There has been a growth in heavily stocked fisheries (mainly carp), which has seen otters invading in search of easy feeding.. Even the owners of back garden Koi ponds have had expensive nocturnal or early morning visits from otters.. Like the reintroduced Red Kite and Buzzard the boom in populations is not without its side effects.. Non-native Mink, which feed on similar prey to the otters, are also impacting on fish and small mammal stocks.
( An extract from an article by Steve Windsor, October 2015 )

150 years ago, they would have thought you were absurd if you advocated for the end of slavery.. They laugh at us now for suggesting that animal slavery be ended.. Someday they won’t be laughing.
( Gary Smith )

Just Off To Feed The Halals…
A friend and neighbour here in North Yorkshire turned up at her office, not far from the now notorious slaughter-house in Thirsk, to find a few old Swalesdale ewes and lambs having their bellies clipped (which is what abattoirs now require) in a field next door.. ‘Are they going for halal slaughter ?’ my friend asked the farmer.. ‘Yes, I’ve seen it – it’s unbelievable what they do to them,’ he said.. He reckoned he would be paid £73 for each lamb, £40 for each ewe.. My friend said she would buy them.. He replied she could – at the escalated price of £100 for each animal.. They are now in a paddock next to her house.. She keeps sending me emails, saying, “Just off to feed the halals”.. Why isn’t there a Ministry of Animals to protect them ?.. And why aren’t farmers protesting about the way they are killed ?
(Liz Jones, 08.02.2015)

The Bone-Heads Bloodlust To Restore Fox ‘Hunting’…
Their bloodlust to restore fox hunting symbolises the backwardness of a Conservative Party stuck in the past.. The bone-heads who like to whip hounds into a frenzy to rip apart hares, deer and foxes scream that it’s a tradition and a part of British life.
Really ?.. Other traditions once part of British life include bear-baiting, burning witches and hanging poachers.. All consigned to history.. David Cameron, who enjoys riding with the snooty Heythrop Hunt in Oxfordshire, is doubly out of touch because most country folk as well as city dwellers view bloodsports as barbaric.
(Daily Mirror, 15.04.2015)

Beating Donkeys Is The Will Of Allah…
In Ethiopia, I was shocked the people didn’t give water or shade to their donkeys.
The woman from the charity I was travelling with, trying to stop me wrestling a whip from a man to use it on him instead, said, ‘Give these people time.. They have to learn compassion’… ‘But they have had enough time !’ I shouted.. ‘They were the first humans on Earth !’
In Somalia, in a refugee camp, I snatched a whip off a young boy who was beating his donkey, and lectured him furiously.. The aid workers from Save The Children couldn’t believe their eyes at my behaviour.. But surely, if you are hungry, thirsty and exhausted, you should have empathy with another creature in exactly the same boat ?
On a dusty road in Ethiopia we stopped a group of boys beating a donkey that could go no further.. ‘Why are you doing this ?’ I asked them.. ‘It is the will of Allah’, they said, thinking I was the insane person for crying over an animal’s wounds.
In Romania, I saw cars swerve to run over dogs and puppies..
(Liz Jones, 01.06.2014)

The only way we can guarantee our continued survival on earth is to recognise the importance of other non human life forms and stop pretending we’re on top of some pyramid of domination over other beings.
( Rodney Adam Coronado )

I was vegan for a while up until recently.. Then I started eating people.. Only free-range, of course, which is humane.. I gave them a little space, didn’t terrorise them (too much), then slit their throats.
( Chris Hannah, Lead Singer and Guitarist, Propagandhi rock band )

Ancient Humans Were Vegetarian

When Humans Were Pure Vegetarians…
It must have felt unnatural at first, to eat animal flesh.. After all, we’re not so far removed from animals ourselves.. Perhaps it even felt cannibalistic.. There might not have been that much intellectual distinction between humans and other animals.. When humans were pure vegetarians, they were living in harmony with the earth and with the other creatures co-habiting the planet with them.. Their closest animal relatives, apes, were vegetarians.. Eating the products of the earth, like plants, grains and fruits that they could gather and eat would have seemed the natural order of things.. But necessity is the mother of invention.. Prehistoric men who lived in frozen geographies, or who lived in an area that became devastated by fire, would have eaten anything to survive.. Just like the soccer players whose plane crashed in the mountains of Chile, and were forced to eat the flesh of other players who died in the crash, earliest man at some point had to make the choice for survival, and that could have been consuming meat for the first time and changing human history – and health – forever.. Imagine having eaten raw foods and vegetables for eons, and all of a sudden, incorporating meat products into your system.. You may have heard friends who were vegetarians tell stories of trying to eat meat and becoming violently ill afterwards.. Biologists will tell you we’re really not designed to eat meat, but we adapted to it.. However, in the timeline of human history, eating meat is a relatively recent evolutionary development.
(vegetarianbenefits.net)

I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it.. They will be yours for food.. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground – everything that has the breath of life in it – I give every green plant for food.
( Genesis 1:29-30 )

Genesis 1:29 .. In this verse God gives food to mankind consisting of the seed-bearing herbs and the fruit of trees.. By comparison with Genesis 9:3, the writer believed that, until after the Flood, mankind subsisted upon a purely vegetable diet.. It may be asked how, if this were the case, man had the opportunity of exercising his dominion over fish, birds, and beasts.. If he did not wish to eat them, neither would he wish to kill them.. The truth seems to be that, according to the P version of Hebrew tradition, the first generations of mankind were intended to live without bloodshed or violence in an ideal condition, like that predicted by Isaiah (Genesis 11:6-9), “they shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain”.. The prophet’s words, “a little child shall lead them”, imply a dominion over the animal world which does not rest upon force.
( Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges )

Every herb bearing seed and tree bearing fruit is granted to man for his sustenance.. With our habits it may seem a matter of course that each should at once appropriate what he needs of things at his hand.. But in the beginning of existence it could not be so.. Of two things proceeding from the same creative hand neither has any original or inherent right to interfere in any way whatever with the other.. The absolute right to each lies in the Creator alone.. The one, it is true, may need the other to support its life, as fruit is needful to man.. And therefore the just Creator cannot make one creature dependent for subsistence on another without granting to it the use of that other.. But this is a matter between Creator and creature, not by any means between creature and creature.. Hence, it was necessary to the rightful adjustment of things, whenever a rational creature was ushered into the world, that the Creator should give an express permission to that creature to partake of the fruits of the earth.
( Albert Barnes, 1798-1870, American theologian )

Genesis 1:29 .. It is evident from this grant of food to man, in the present verse, and from that to the brute animals in the next, that the use of flesh in the beginning was allowed to neither, and, consequently, that the now carnivorous animals then fed upon grass, etc., as the tame ones amongst us do at present.. The ancients mention this as one characteristic of the golden age:  “Not so the golden age, who fed on fruit, nor durst with bloody meals their hands pollute.”
( Thomas Coke, 1747-1814, Methodist Bishop )

‘I have given you every herb for food’ – It seems from this, says Dr Priestley, an eminent philosopher, that man was originally intended to live upon vegetables only, and as no change was made in the structure of men’s bodies after the flood, it is not probable that any change was made in the articles of their food.. It may also be inferred from this passage that no animal whatever was originally designed to prey on others, for nothing is here said to be given to any beast of the earth besides green herbs.. Before sin entered into the world, there could be, at least, no violent deaths, if any death at all.
( Adam Clarke, 1760-1832, British Methodist theologian and biblical scholar )

In the golden age, spontaneous fruits were the food of happy mortals.
( Antoine Augustin Calmet, 1672-1757, French Benedictine monk )

The Hebrew meaning of the word ‘meat’ is bread or food.
The word ‘meat’ comes from the Old English word mete, which referred to food in general.

Humans aren’t physiologically designed to eat meat.. I think the evidence is pretty clear.. If you look at various characteristics of carnivores versus herbivores, it doesn’t take a genius to see where humans line up.. A herbivore’s intestines are 12 times its body length, and humans are closer to herbivores.. Both get vitamin C from their diets (carnivores make it internally).. Both sip water, not lap it up with their tongues.. Both cool their bodies by perspiring (carnivores pant).
(William C. Roberts, Cardiologist)

Scientists have been warning of the health risks of eating red and processed meat for some years with evidence pointing to them containing chemicals that can cause cancer.
(Ruki Sayid, Daily Mirror, 24.10.2015)

Humanity’s Worst Hypocrisy

Humanity’s Worst Hypocrisy…
You don’t really know your fellow man until you’ve pondered the fact that most people say they love animals, professing admiration and sympathy, and most people eat them.. The great masses of creatures in our industrial farms today would be entitled to conclude, if they could do any pondering themselves, that our love is not worth much.. Judging by the fruits, it more resembles hatred.. They come and go knowing nothing of existence but misery.. No season of gentleness anymore before the blade.. No glimpse of earth’s comforts or of life’s goodness.. It’s all just pain, courtesy of a world filled with self-described animal lovers.. Cruelty to animals, and to farm animals in particular, may not be humanity’s worst offence.. It has no rival, however, for the title of humanity’s worst hypocrisy.
( Matthew Scully, 19.12.2016 )

A message from the animals to all vegans ..
Thank you for eating food, and not souls.

Peace and the survival of life on earth as we know it are threatened by human activities which lack a commitment to humanitarian values.. Destruction of nature and nature’s resources result from ignorance, greed and lack of respect for the earth’s living things.
( Dalai Lama )

Humans would be extinct within a few days if humans killed each other at the same rate they kill animals.

Twenty years ago I thought.. What’s the difference between eating a bloody steak and killing my dog, slitting him open and roasting him ?
( Joan Jett )

When our leaders and our governments do nothing to protect animals, all animals, then it tells us all we need to know about them.

The only way we can guarantee our continued survival on earth is to recognise the importance of other non-human life forms and stop pretending we are on top of some pyramid of domination over other beings.
( Rod Coronado )

Whenever an animal escapes the slaughter-house, everyone wants to save his life.. Why don’t they care about the ones who couldn’t escape ?

Almost a third of vets treating pets have seen puppies they believe have been imported illegally in the past year, a study reveals.. Of those with concerns, half were about flat-faced French bulldogs, while pugs and chihuahuas also raised suspicions.. ‘Illegal importers only care about profit, not puppy welfare,’ said Gudrun Ravetz, president of the British Veterinary Association, which asked 1,000 vets.
( Tom Bevan, 08.12.2016 )

Under US President Donald Trump’s administration, the public will no longer have access to reports on mistreatment of animals on farms, zoos, laboratories, circuses, and dog-breeding facilities.

I’ve noticed so many benefits since becoming a vegan.
First, I no longer eat the suffering and pain of defenceless animals.
Secondly, my body has become lighter, so to say ‘clearer’.
Thirdly, in my profession, flexibility and elasticity are incredibly important, and I increased both of these.. And fourthly, now I almost never suffer from a cold or flu.
( Alexey Voevoda )

Low-Life Heartless Scum Infest Our Planet…
A gang set their dogs onto wild animals to satisfy their ‘blood lust’ and filmed the results, a court heard.. Ringleader Graham Coombes had 30,000 ‘trophy images’ of deer, foxes, rabbits, and even a llama on his phone which he shared with others.. The eleven men used powerful lights at night to stun creatures before encouraging their dogs, usually lurchers, to savage them, a technique known as lamping.. RSPCA prosecutor Jeremy Cave said the main motive seemed to be gratuitous pleasure.. The aim was ‘to kill as much wildlife as possible’, he added.. A search of Coombes’ land found a pile of at least 20 animal carcasses, and it was revealed he enlisted the help of a friend to shoot his badly-injured dog after a four-hour fight with a badger.. District judge Diane Baker called hunting with dogs ‘abhorrent’ and said, ‘This was not an economic crime.. It’s an animal cruelty crime.. It’s blood lust.’.. Coombes, 41, of Bovey Tracey, Devon, was jailed for 20 weeks after admitting six counts relating to killing animals and causing unnecessary suffering to a dog.. He was told to pay £3,000 costs and banned from keeping dogs for life.. Ten men from Devon, Dorset, Somerset and South Wales were also sentenced.. Gethyn Durham, 27, of Cymbran was jailed for six weeks and Philip Cross, 36, of Tonypandy for eight weeks.. Plymouth magistrates gave eight others suspended sentences or community orders.
( Tom Bevan, 08.12.2016 )

Despite all the bad days and mean people, I still believe in good days and kind people.. Plus, there are always dogs.

The only thing you can honestly say about fox hunting is that people enjoy it, people have a sadistic pleasure in seeing an animal ripped apart, it’s sadism.. To be honest, it’s psychopathic behaviour to enjoy the suffering of another creature.. People who have no compassion for animals tend not to have compassion for humans either.
( Brian May )

To see that connection between a person and an animal, that love and generosity, it’s something not many of us grasp.
( Ruta Gedmintas )

The Earth, and its animals, are being destroyed by psychopaths.

For what are we born if not to aid one another ?
( Ernest Hemingway )

The changes to our lifestyles that veganism necessitates do not demand much of us..
Yet these small changes grant something of monumental significance to other animals.. Their right to liberty from our oppression.
( Sandra Higgins )
