A Quote by George Orwell on george orwell and animals

Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals.

A Quote by Henry Beston on animals and respect of all life

We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature, and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate of having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein we err, and greatly err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.

Henry Beston (1888 - 1968)

A Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky on love, animals, plants, world, and wisdom

"Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will precieve the divine mystery in things. Once you precieve it, you will begin to comprehend it better everyday. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love."

Fyodor Dostoyevsky
