"You shouldn't say 'animals' to distinguish between humans and non-humans. We are all animals." - Peter Singer
"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society." - Jiddu Krishnamurti
"Animals, or at least those who are conscious and capable of suffering or enjoying their lives, are not things for us to use in whatever way we find convenient."
"I am not saying that factory farming is the same as the Holocaust or the slave trade, but it's clear that there is an immense amount of suffering in it, and just as we think that the Nazis were wrong to ignore the suffering of their victims, so we are wrong to ignore the sufferings of our victims."
"I believe that in this new world that we live in, we often have a responsibility, you know, to actually go beyond the thou shalt nots - that is, the not harming others - and say we can help others and we should be helping others."
"All the arguments to prove man's superiority cannot shatter this hard fact: in suffering the animals are our equals."
