A Quote by Brigid Brophy on animals, belief, fulfillment, judgment, justice, life, pain, and worth

I don't myself believe that, even when we fulfill our minimum obligations not to cause pain, we have the right to kill animals. I know I would not have the right to kill you, however painlessly, just because I liked your flavour, and I am not in a position to judge that your life is worth more to you than the animal's to it.

A Quote by Brigid Brophy on cruelty, money, people, and sentimentality

Whenever people say "we mustn't be sentimental", you can take it they are about to do something cruel. And if they add, "we must be realistic," they mean they are going to make money out of it.

A Quote by Brigid Brophy on animals, oppression, and slavery

To us it seems incredible that the Greek philosophers should have scanned so deeply into right and wrong and yet never noticed the immorality of slavery. Perhaps 3000 years from now it will seem equally incredible that we not notice the immorality of our own oppression of animals.
