Rachel Carson
“By acquiescing in an act that causes such suffering to a living creature, who among us is not diminished?”
Rachel Carson

“Why is compassion not part of our established curriculum, an inherent part of our education? Compassion, awe, wonder, curiosity, exaltation, humility - these are the very foundation of any real civilization.”
Yehudi Menuhin

Ashley Montagu
“The indifference, callousness, and contempt that so many people exhibit toward animals is evil first because it results in great suffering towards animals, and second because it results in an incalculably great impoverishment of human spirit.”
Ashley Montagu

“The pursuit of peace and progress cannot end in a few years in either victory or defeat. The pursuit of peace and progress, with its trials and its errors, its successes and its setbacks, can never be relaxed and never abandoned.”
Dag Hammarskjold
