Animal Rights

"One day the absurdity of the almost universal human belief in the slavery of other animals will be palpable. We shall then have discovered our souls and become worthier of sharing the planet with them."    
Martin Luther King, Jr

"I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as i will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of man."  
Leonardo Da Vinci

      “Today more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to all other forms of life.”
Dalai Lama

      “When we return wild animals to nature, we merely return them to what is already theirs. For man cannot give wild animals freedom. They can only take it away.”
Jacques Cousteau

  “Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.”
Albert Einstein

    “There is no fundamental difference between man and animal in their ability to feel pleasure and pain, happiness and misery.”
Charles Darwin
