He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals. -Immanuel Kant

If having a soul means being able to feel love and loyalty and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans. -James Herriot

I like animals because they are not consciously cruel and don't betray each other. -Taylor Caldwell

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read. -Groucho Marx, The Essential Groucho: Writings For By And About Groucho Marx

Happiness is a warm puppy. -Charles M. Schulz

Dogs never bite me. Just humans. -Marilyn Monroe

Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That's the problem. -A.A. MilneWinnie-the-Pooh

Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in. -Mark Twain

You can judge a man's true character by the way he treats his fellow animals. -Paul McCartney

Petting, scratching, and cuddling a dog could be as soothing to the mind and heart as deep meditation and almost as good for the soul as prayer. -Dean KoontzFalse Memory

If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience. -Woodrow Wilson

Perhaps in the back of our minds we already understand, without all the science I've discussed, that something terribly wrong is happening. Our sustenance now comes from misery. We know that if someone offers to show us a film on how our meat is produced, it will be a horror film. We perhaps know more than we care to admit, keeping it down in the dark places of our memory-- disavowed. When we eat factory-farmed meat we live, literally, on tortured flesh. Increasingly, that tortured flesh is becoming our own. -Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals
