 Grace Slick - “The main point for me is moral animals are sentient beings. I know for some this is a hard argument to accept, but we're not built to eat a lot of meat.”  
 Samuel Butler - “Rare virtues are like rare plants or animals, things that have not been able to hold their own in the world. A virtue to be serviceable must, like gold, be alloyed with some commoner but more durable metal.”  
 Graham Swift - “I am struck by the way people behave on the Tube. They look at each other beadily and inquisitively, and something goes on in their thoughts which must be equivalent to the way dogs and other animals, when they meet, sniff each other's arses and nuzzle each other's fur.”

 Igor Stravinsky - “A plague on eminence I hardly dare cross the street anymore without a convoy, and I am stared at wherever I go like an idiot member of a royal family or an animal in a zoo and zoo animals have been known to die from stares.”  
 Lady Mary Wortley Montagu - “Nature has not placed us in an inferior rank to men, no more than the females of other animals, where we see no distinction of capacity, though I am persuaded if there was a commonwealth of rational horses... it would be an established maxim amongst them that a mare could not be taught to pace.”  
 Joseph Addison - “There is not, in my opinion, anything more mysterious in nature than this instinct in animals, which thus rise above reason, and yet fall infinitely short of it.”  
 Christopher Lasch - “Once women begin to question the inevitability of their subordination and to reject the conventions formerly associated with it, they can no longer retreat to the safety of those conventions. The woman who rejects the stereotype of feminine weakness and dependence can no longer find much comfort in the clichT that all men are beasts. She has no choice except to believe, on the contrary, that men are human beings, and she finds it hard to forgive them when they act like animals.”  
 C.S. Lewis - “Humans are amphibians -- half spirit and half animal. As spirits they belong to the eternal world, but as animals they inhabit time.”

 Annie Evans - “we are anticipating that enough good and generous people will help us, just as the response has been during this latest crisis to help the pets of the Gulf Coast. We are an all volunteer organization. The Directors work full time and receive no salary, but rather donate their own resources to further the Mission. Every penny donated or earned through the sale of merchandise is utilized entirely for the benefit of the animals. All office, vehicle and routine expenses are met by the directors.”
