Francis of Assisi
"Not to hurt our humble brethren is our first duty to them, but to
stop there is not enough. We have a higher mission - to be of service to
them wherever they require it."
"If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the
shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who deal likewise with
their fellow men."
"Animals have the same source as we had. Like us, they derive the
life of thought, will, and love from the Creator."
