Bob Dylan
“He [Ray] was working in a tool-and-die factory in Brooklyn, but before that had drifted around, had been employed at the Studebaker plant in South Bend and also at an Omaha slaughterhouse on the kill floor. Once I asked him what that was like. "You ever heard of Auschwitz?”
Bob Dylan, Chronicles: Volume One

Milan Kundera
“Humanity's true moral test, its fundamental test…consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals.”
Milan Kundera
