A Quote by John Hoyt on abuse, animals, consequences, cruelty, education, ethics, hope, and justice

For too long we have occupied ourselves with responding to the consequences of cruelty and abuse and have neglected the important task of building up an ethical system in which justice for animals is regarded as the norm rather than the exception. Our only hope is to put our focus on the education of the young.

John Hoyt (1932 -)

A Quote by George M. Verity on abuse, america, christianity, civilization, cooperation, democracy, effort, garden, liberty, peace, and world
