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

Paul Theroux
“I have a hatred of the taming of animals, especially large ones that are so contented in the wild. I abominate circus acts that involve big befooled beasts--cowed tigers or helplessly roaring lions pawing the air and teetering on small stools. I deplore zoos and anything to do with animal confinement or restraint.”
Paul Theroux, The Last Train to Zona Verde: My Ultimate African Safari

Jeannette Walls
“One day we heard on the radio that a woman in the suburbs had seen a mountain lion behind her house and had called the police, who shot the animal. Dad got so angry he put his fist through a wall. "That mountain lion had as much right to his life as that sour old biddy does to hers," he said. "You can't kill something just because it's wild.”
Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle

Susanna Tamaro
“Animal?
Ao pensar nesse termo sentiu um leve embaraço.
Era um animal, Luisito? Ou era algo diferente?
O que era afinal um animal?
No desdém do uso comum, as pessoas esqueciam-se muito facilmente da essência dessa palavra. Anima, o termo latina para alma. Sim, o animal era alguém que possuía alma. Por outro lado, não estava muito certa de que se pudesse dizer a mesma coisa da maior parte dos seres humanos."

In "Um companheiro inesquecível", página 34”
Susana Tamaro

“Dans leur ensemble, les humains ne veulent pas entendre parler des conditions dans lesquelles la viande est obtenue. Ils zappent la phase de l’élevage autant que celle de l'abattage. Quand ce n'est pas du déni, c'est au moins de l’évitement. Nul ne veut savoir la somme de souffrances qu'il a fallu pour produire ce fricandeau, ce boudin noir, cette escalope milanaise ou ce ris de veau. C'est comme s'ils arrivaient dans nos assiettes par une opération du Saint-Esprit.”
Franz-Olivier Giesbert

“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

Stephen Richards
“On this world you have the animals and they have as much right to be on this world as us; and it’s man who is the reason they are pushed to extinction. They’re killing them for their tusks and their horns, and these fucking idiots, they think claws will give them sex appeal and they get all fucking sissy on you.”
Stephen Richards, Street Warrior: The True Story of the Legendary Malcolm Price, Britain's Hardest Man

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
