George Bernard Shaw
Animals are my friends, and I don’t eat my friends.
We are all victims of the violence that animals suffer… their
liberation is also our liberation.
The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them,
but to be indifferent to them. That’s the essence of inhumanity.
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?
We pray on Sundays that we may have light. To guide our footsteps on
the path we tread. We are sick of war, we don't want to fight. And yet
we gorge ourselves upon the dead."
Irish playwright, winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1925
