“If you are not vegan, please consider going vegan. It’s a matter of nonviolence. Being vegan is your statement that you reject violence to other sentient beings, to yourself, and to the environment, on which all sentient beings depend.”
Gary L. Francione

David Pearce
“It's not that there are no differences between human and non-human animals, any more than there are no differences between black people and white people, freeborn citizens and slaves, men and women, Jews and gentiles, gays or heterosexuals. The question is rather: are they morally relevant differences? This matters because morally catastrophic consequences can ensue when we latch on to a real but morally irrelevant difference between sentient beings.”
David Pearce

Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle

Mario Bellatin
“Reflexioné entonces en la cada vez más complicada relación entre los hombres y los animales. En las premisas actuales. En los deberes que se tienen que cumplir en estos tiempos. En preceptos que algunos años atrás nos hubieran parecido inimaginables.
Por ejemplo, en el hecho de adoptar animales y no comprarlos como era lo habitual. El de esterilizar tanto a las hembras como a los machos. Olvidar por completo mutilarlos inútilmente —orejas, colas— o hacerles cortes de pelo en virtud de determinados cánones de belleza.”
Mario Bellatin, Gallinas de madera

“Why don't people get their children stuffed after they pass away. Why not, I mean you do love them right?”

“E' sudato. E' sporco di terra. Ha le mani segate dalla fune.
- Visto? - commenta raggiante.
- Fortuna che aveva la corda.
- Non è fortuna. E' preparazione.
- Ah, certo. Preparazione.
In effetti non si può dire che l'Alpinista non sia preparato, per quanto un po' sovrappeso. Metri di cordino arrotolati sulla spalla. Moschettone alla cintura. Zaino tattico. Elmetto da minatore.
- Comunque, è dura prepararsi per tutto. Se scivolando si faceva male...
- Macché scivolando. E' solo allenamento.
- Allenamento? E per che cosa?
- Per il peggio. Come dice il motto: prepararsi per il peggio, pregare per il meglio!
- Ah, molto interessante. Lo sa che io faccio l'esatto contrario?
Preparati, Ciccione. E' il tuo turno di rimanere basito.
- Voglio dire: mi preparo per il meglio, cioè per stare meglio, insomma, una società migliore, e intanto prego che la corda del mondo si spezzi, perché vede, ho l'impressione che sia già piuttosto tirata, e allora non vorrei che cede di schianto e ci troviamo gambe all'aria, tanto vale che si rompe prima, quando ancora non tutto è perduto, capisce?, quindi se l'Occidente vuole suicidarsi, niente in contrario, l'eutanasia mi trova favorevole, purché non la si eserciti sul sottoscritto, che nel frattempo preferisce senz'altro dedicarsi ad altri tipi di eu: l'eudemonia, certo, ma anche l'eupepsia, se vogliamo guardare all'immediato, e l'eugenetica, perché no?, mi offro volontario per qualsiasi esperimento.pag.185
Sono contento di non aver concluso il baratto. Nulla è fatto per essere scambiato, nessuno si fa trapiantare un polmone al posto di un rene. Per questo il sottoscritto è contro ogni salario. Da lavoro dipendente. Da lavoro autonomo. Dal solo fatto di esistere. Quest'ultimo, per carità, mi spetterebbe con gli interessi: per anni si è tratto profitto dal mio corpo, dalle mie relazioni, dai miei desideri, senza degnarsi di pagarmi uno stipendio, un affitto, un contratto d'uso.
La buona notizia è che non passerò a riscuotere. Mi riprendo la vita, e tanti saluti.”
Wu Ming 2, Guerra agli umani

Bùi Văn Nam Sơn
“Vì thú vật chỉ có những cảm giác cấp thấp, không thể phản tỉnh hay suy lý được, nên chúng hoàn toàn bất lực và bị bản năng chi phối, chúng càng cần đến sự giúp đỡ, bảo vệ của con người. Càng có nhiều lý tính và năng lực tinh thần, con người càng có thêm trách nhiệm chứ không phải ngược lại.”
Bùi Văn Nam Sơn, "Chat" với René Descartes

Carl Safina
“The sensation I was feeling on the clifftop was some sort of reverberation in the air itself.… The whale had submerged and I was still feeling something. The strange rhythm seemed now to be coming from behind me, from the land, so I turned to look across the gorge … where my heart stopped.… Standing there in the shade of the tree was an elephant … staring out to sea!… A female with a left tusk broken off near the base.… I knew who she was, who she had to be. I recognized her from a color photograph put out by the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry under the title “The Last Remaining Knysna Elephant.” This was the Matriarch herself.… She was here because she no longer had anyone to talk to in the forest. She was standing here on the edge of the ocean because it was the next, nearest, and most powerful source of infrasound. The underrumble of the surf would have been well within her range, a soothing balm for an animal used to being surrounded by low and comforting frequencies, by the lifesounds of a herd, and now this was the next-best thing. My heart went out to her. The whole idea of this grandmother of many being alone for the first time in her life was tragic, conjuring up the vision of countless other old and lonely souls. But just as I was about to be consumed by helpless sorrow, something even more extraordinary took place.… The throbbing was back in the air. I could feel it, and I began to understand why. The blue whale was on the surface again, pointed inshore, resting, her blowhole clearly visible. The Matriarch was here for the whale! The largest animal in the ocean and the largest living land animal were no more than a hundred yards apart, and I was convinced that they were communicating! In infrasound, in concert, sharing big brains and long lives, understanding the pain of high investment in a few precious offspring, aware of the importance and the pleasure of complex sociality, these rare and lovely great ladies were commiserating over the back fence of this rocky Cape shore, woman to woman, matriarch to matriarch, almost the last of their kind. I turned, blinking away the tears, and left them to it. This was no place for a mere man”
Carl Safina, Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel

“The swamp isn't a useless piece of land. A swamp is a kind of wetland. Wetlands are important to humans.”

Loving you wholeheartedly is to realize the truth that the warmth in your love and gratitude is more nutritious to my body and mind than your tortured bodies.

With Love”
