- Page 9
The dog has got more fun out of Man than Man has got out of the dog, for the clearly demonstrable reason that Man is the more laughable of the two animals.
The only honest reaction and true loyalty we get is from our animals. Once they're your friends, you can do no wrong.
Dick Van Patten
Zoos are becoming facsimiles - or perhaps caricatures - of how animals once were in their natural habitat. If the right policies toward nature were pursued, we would need no zoos at all.
Michael J. Fox
I could do terrible things to people who dump unwanted animals by the roadside.
Humans aren't as good as we should be in our capacity to empathize with feelings and thoughts of others, be they humans or other animals on Earth.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
The animals that depend on instinct have an inherent knowledge of the laws of economics and of how to apply them; Man, with his powers of reason, has reduced economics to the level of a farce which is at once funnier and more tragic than Tobacco Road.
The desire to take medicine is perhaps the greatest feature which distinguishes man from animals.
Men are rather reasoning than reasonable animals, for the most part governed by the impulse of passion.
Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.
Research has shown that a barren environment is much more damaging to baby animals than it is to adult animals. It does not hurt the adult animals the same way it damages babies.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
W. H. Auden

Trees and animals are venerated, while man is simply one more animal in the ecosystem - and largely a hindrance, not an asset.
I've always thought a hotel ought to offer optional small animals. I mean a cat to sleep on your bed at night, or a dog of some kind to act pleased when you come in. You ever notice how a hotel room feels so lifeless?
Having travelled to some 20 African countries, I find myself, like so many other visitors to Africa before me, intoxicated with the continent.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
