Isaac Bashevis Singer

Isaac Bashevis Singer

Ursula K. Le Guin
“The law of evolution is that the strongest survives!' 'Yes, and the strongest, in the existence of any social species, are those who are most social. In human terms, most ethical...There is no strength to be gained from hurting one another. Only weakness.”
Ursula K. Le Guin

Albert Schweitzer
“Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.”
Albert Schweitzer

Ellen DeGeneres
“If you want to test cosmetics, why do it on some poor animal who hasn't done anything? They should use prisoners who have been convicted of murder or rape instead.

Ellen DeGeneres, My Point... And I Do Have One

Thomas A. Edison
“Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.”
Thomas A. Edison
