Inspiration: May 3-9 is Be Kind to Animals Week!

Sponsored by the American Humane Society and the Canadian Federation of Humane Societies (www.americanhumane.org, www.cfhs.ca), May 3-9 is our reminder week to always be kind to animals. Below are a few quotes on the beauty, wisdom and care of animals. As if we needed additional reasons to celebrate, a team of researchers from Azabu University's School of Veterinary Medicine in Japan found a spike in oxytocin (a chemical that makes us feel good) occurs in both humans and dogs when they gaze into each other's eyes—explaining why our bond is so tight. The research was published in April of 2015 in the journal Science (http://www.sciencemag.org/content/348/6232/333).

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. -Mahatma Gandhi

Dogs come when they're called; cats take a message and get back to you later. -Mary Bly

A dog wags its tail with its heart. -Martin Buxbaum

Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway. - Mary Kay Ash

Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms. -George Eliot

There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats. -Albert Schweitzer

Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people. -W. C. Fields

A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself. -Josh Billings

If we treated everyone we meet with the same affection we bestow upon our favorite cat, they, too, would purr. -Martin Delany

Feel the loveThis month’s Inspiration is brought to us by Be Kind to Animals Week, May 4 – 10 (first full week in May).  For more information visit: Canadian Federation of Humane Societies, www.cfhs.ca, or American Humane Association www.americanhumane.org/

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
