A Quote by Ouida on animals, earth, generations, needs, world, and youth

In a few generations more, there will probably be no room at all allowed for animals on the earth: no need of them, no toleration of them. An immense agony will have then ceased, but with it there will also have passed away the last smile of the world's youth.

A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on animals, cowardice, and obstacles

Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them . . . they are liable to spring upon you; but when you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight.

A Quote by Olivia Newton-John on animals, country, destruction, and intelligence

I would not be comfortable appearing in a country where they have permitted the destruction of such beautiful and intelligent animals. (after her 1978 cancellation of a tour of Japan because of their dolphin kill.)

A Quote by Norman Mailer on animals, fighting, greed, horses, lust, meetings, politics, and practicality

A political convention is after all not a meeting of a corporation's board of directors; it is a fiesta, a carnival, a pig-rooting, horse-snorting, band-playing, voice-screaming medieval get-together of greed, practical lust, meeting, feud, vendetta, conciliation, of rabble-rousers, fist fights (as it used to be), embraces, drunks (again as it used to be) and collective rivers of animal sweat.

A Quote by Nikos Kazantzakis on animals, meaning, men, understanding, and world

Everything in the world has a hidden meaning. . . . Men, animals, trees, stars, they are all hieroglyphics. When you see them you do not understand them. You think they are really men, animals, trees, stars. It is only years later that you understand.

A Quote by Nathaniel Altman on animals, nature, peace, people, responsibility, society, and world

. . . As a so-called "civilized" people, and as members of a society in search of lasting peace in the world, we cannot remain callous to our responsibility toward nature and insensitive to the inherent rights of the animals.

A Quote by Miriam Makeba on america, animals, cinema, dance, listening, love, people, and television

People in the United States still have a 'Tarzan' movie view of Africa. That's because in the movies all you see are jungles and animals . . . We [too] watch television and listen to the radio and go to dances and fall in love.
