Michelle liked a quote
Man and Superman by George Bernard Shaw
“We cut the throat of a calf and hang it up by the heels to bleed to death so that our veal cutlet may be white; we nail geese to a board and cram them with food because we like the taste of liver disease; we tear birds to pieces to decorate our women's hats; we mutilate domestic animals for no reason at all except to follow an instinctively cruel fashion; and we connive at the most abominable tortures in the hope of discovering some magical cure for our own diseases by them.”
George Bernard Shaw

Alice Walker
“Animals can communicate quite well. And they do. And generally speaking, they are ignored”
Alice Walker

Peter Singer
“If possessing a higher degree of intelligence does not entitle one human to use another for his or her own ends, how can it entitle humans to exploit non-humans?”
Peter Singer, Animal Liberation

Leonardo da Vinci
“The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.”
Leonardo da Vinci

Ellen DeGeneres
“If you want to test cosmetics, why do it on some poor animal who hasn't done anything? They should use prisoners who have been convicted of murder or rape instead. So, rather than seeing if perfume irritates a bunny rabbit's eyes, they should throw it in Charles Manson's eyes and ask him if it hurts.”
Ellen DeGeneres, My Point... And I Do Have One

Émile Zola
“If you ask me what I came into this life to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud.”
Émile Zola
