Animal Rights quotes and Best sayings – Quotations about Animal Rights

If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men. St. Francis of Assisi

There will be no justice as long as man will stand with a knife or with a gun and destroy those who are weaker than he is. Isaac Bashevis Singer

The life spark in my eyes is in no way different than the life spark in the eyes of any other sentient being.  Michael Stepaniak

Deliberate cruelty to our defenceless and beautiful little cousins is surely one of the meanest and most detestable vices of which a human being can be guilty. William Ralph Inge





Deer hunting would be fine sport, if only the deer had guns. William S. Gilbert

Because the heart beats under a covering of hair, of fur, feathers, or wings, it is, for that reason, to be of no account? Jean Paul Richter

>>> Animals & Pets quotes

In an earlier stage of our development most human groups held to a tribal ethic. Members of the tribe were protected, but people of other tribes could be robbed or killed as one pleased. Gradually the circle of protection expanded, but as recently as 150 years ago we did not include blacks. So African human beings could be captured, shipped to America and sold. In Australia white settlers regarded Aborigines as a pest and hunted them down, much as kangaroos are hunted down today. Just as we have progressed beyond the blatantly racist ethic of the era of slavery and colonialism, so we must now progress beyond the speciesist ethic of the era of factory farming, of the use of animals as mere research tools, of whaling, seal hunting, kangaroo slaughter and the destruction of wilderness. We must take the final step in expanding the circle of ethics.  Pete Singer

Animal Rights quotes and sayings 1

Cruelty must be whitewashed by a moral excuse, and pretense of reluctance.  George Bernard Shaw

I believe in animal rights, and high among them is the right to the gentle stroke of a human hand.  Robert Brault, rbrault

Animal Rights quotes and sayings 2




Very little of the great cruelty shown by men can really be attributed to cruel instinct. Most of it comes from thoughtlessness or inherited habit. The roots of cruelty, therefore, are not so much strong as widespread. But the time must come when inhumanity protected by custom and thoughtlessness will succumb before humanity championed by thought. Let us work that this time may come.  Albert Schweitzer

Animal Rights quotes and sayings 5

When a man wants to murder a tiger he calls it sport; when the tiger wants to murder him he calls it ferocity.  George Bernard Shaw

Animal Rights quotes and sayings 6





Henry S. Salt declares not only that human beings have rights. He declares that animals also have rights. That it is not the vivisector alone who has rights. Not the meat-eater alone. That the vivisected and the meat-eaten also have rights. I was going to say Salt was ahead of his time. That is a mistake. He is ahead of your time.  Horace Traubel (1858–1919)

Animal Rights quotes and sayings 7

Of all the creatures that were made, man is the most detestable. Of the entire brood he is the only one—the solitary one—that possesses malice. That is the basest of all instincts, passions, vices—the most hateful. He is the only creature that has pain for sport, knowing it to be pain. Also—in all the list he is the only creature that has a nasty mind.  Mark Twain

Animal Rights quotes and sayings 8

I believe I am not interested to know whether Vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn’t. To know that the results are profitable to the race would not remove my hostility to it. The pains which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity towards it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further. It is so distinctly a matter of feeling with me, and is so strong and so deeply-rooted in my make and constitution, that I am sure I could not even see a vivisector vivisected with anything more than a sort of qualified satisfaction. I do not say I should not go and look on; I only mean that I should almost surely fail to get out of it the degree of contentment which it ought, of course, to be expected to furnish. Mark Twain

Animal Rights quotes and sayings 9

Suppose that tomorrow 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 they have the right to treat you as you treat the animals you breed, keep and kill for food?  John Harris

Animal Rights quotes and sayings

[D]rugs being tested on animals. That sort of thing, well, it depends, doesn’t it? If the drug’s aspirin and the monkey’s got a headache, is it tight? ~Karl Pilkington

Animal Rights quotes

Evolutionary biology is now uttering and seeking those forces that link us with all those that have being. If we can discover the meaning in the trilling of a frog, perhaps we may understand why it is for us not merely noise but a song of poetry and emotion.  Adrian Forsyth

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

The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.  Schopenhauer

A true sportsman is a hunter lost in the woods and out of ammo.  Robert Brault

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 A. Edison

I think animal testing is a terrible idea. They get all nervous and give silly answers. Stephen Fry

Teaching a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the child as it is to the caterpillar.  Bradley Millar

I abhor vivisection with my whole soul. All the scientific discoveries stained with innocent blood I count as of no consequence.  Mahatma Gandhi

If a ferret bites you it is nearly always your own fault.  Phil Drabble

Zoos are becoming facsimiles — or perhaps caricatures — of how animals once were in their natural habitat. If the right policies toward nature were pursued, we would need no zoos at all.  Michael Fox

Vivisection is a social evil because if it advances human knowledge, it does so at the expense of human character.  George Bernard Shaw

It is inexcusable for scientists to torture animals; let them make their experiments on journalists and politicians.  Henrik Ibsen
