A Quote by Susan L. Warner on animals, christ, fatherhood, jesus, love, planning, sons, and world

Because our Heavenly Father wants us to know Him and to feel His love, He planned a world filled with magnificent creations that bear record of Him and His Son, Jesus Christ. Have you ever counted all the things that bear record of the Savior? There are sunsets and seashells, lilacs and lakes, insects and animals, miraculous mornings and star-strewn skies.

A Quote by Professor Stephen L. Clark on animals, manners, motivation, needs, prejudice, sharing, understanding, and world

If we are to understand the animals with whom we share the world, we need to watch them, interact with them, without too much prejudice. Undestanding them, we may also understand ourselves a little more. By seeing what constrains and motivates our kindred we may, perhaps, discover what the morals and manners of the human beasts might be.

Stephen L. Clark (1945 -)

A Quote by Stephen A. Fuqua on animals and life

Without knowing oneself or examining oneself, there is no point in human life. The human who refuses to do this might as well be an animal, for that life form is pointless.

A Quote by Sir William Schwenck Gilbert on animals, good, names, and science

I'm very good at integral and differential calculus, I know the scientific names of beings animalculous; In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral, I am the very model of a modern Major-General.

A Quote by Simone de Beauvoir on animals, giving, humanity, life, sex, and superiority

It is not in giving life but in risking life that man is raised above the animal; that is why superiority has been accorded in humanity not to the sex that brings forth but to that which kills.

A Quote by Sidonie Gabrielle Claudine Colette on animals, authority, faith, purpose, science, sleep, and trust

Researchers, with science as their authority, will be able to cut animals up, alive, into small pieces, drop them from a great height to see if they are shattered by the fall, or deprive them of sleep for sixteen days and nights continuously for the purposes of an iniquitous monograph. . . . Animal trust, undeserved faith, when at last will you turn away from us? Shall we never tire of deceiving, betraying, tormenting animals before they cease to trust us?
