When a man has pity on all living creatures then only is he noble. ~Buddha
He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.
The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
I have always felt that the way we treat animals is a pretty good indicator of the compassion we are capable of for the human race.
~ Ali McGraw
All the arguments to prove man's superiority cannot shatter this hard fact: in suffering the animals are our equals.
