“You humans drink our milk and eat the eggs of the chickens and the ducks. Isn't that enough for you? Isn't it enough that we give you our children and what's meant for our children? And if not, when is it enough? All you humans do is take, take, take from the earth and its beautiful creatures, and what do you give back? Nothing. I know humans consider it a grave insult to be called an animal. Well, I would never give a human the fine distinction of being called an animal, because an animal may kill to live but an animal never lives to kill. Humans have to earn the right to be called animals again.”
David Duchovny, Holy Cow

David Duchovny

“Feelings come and go, unless you don't feel them. Then they stay, and hurt, and grow pear-shaped and weird.”
David Duchovny, Holy Cow
