This Quotations Archive contains words from famous and some not so famous people who have expressed a sense of love, compassion, and respect for all of God's creation: for people, for animals, and for the environment.  They speak of our teaching methods and philosophy.  They speak of a lifestyle of non-violence.   They seek to eliminate cruelty and suffering.  They seek to wake us up.   They seek to give us hope.

Animal Rights Activist

"The concept of 'animal rights' values the simple premise that ALL living creatures have a "right" to be allowed to live their lives without victimization--free from brutality. It is a right that EVERY being strives for."

"Man IS superior to every other being...in his ability to excuse away those parts of himself too vile for self-examination."

"Animal Rights--Rational, not Radical."

"Humanely" slaughtered 'meat', is an obscene lie invented and perpetuated by people who are too lazy, selfish and cruel to change their dietary habits. Forcibly denying a creature its right to life, love and companionship can NEVER be humane."

"Compassion counts above all else -- more than intelligence, wealth, power or prominence. Those who have it, and extend it to ALL living beings, fully understand its potential to single-handedly change the world."

"You are now entering the Twilight Zone. A place where benevolence toward all life forms is TERRORISM, punishable by prison today...likely, death tomorrow. Savage, unbridled slaughter is the norm, defended as just and humane, as long as money and power remain the blood-soaked, unholy grail. That's the signpost up ahead. Next stop. A place where lies are proselytized as truth; stupidity as wisdom; torture & death as honorable tradition, and contempt, arrogance and rape, as benign and sustainable. The human 'hood--presently lost, insane and rabid within its own cage--planet Earth."
