Those towns aren't any less haunted than the others. They're just better liars."

- George Bernard Shaw
"The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality."

- Sylvia A. Earle
"A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral."
- Leo Tolstoy
Maria Corte Maidagan
"In years gone by, we would just take, take, take from the oceans but today we realize this is not an option, that the oceans keep us alive, and that we need to tread more carefully. This is now both a governance issue and a choice issue."

"Until we have the courage to recognize cruelty for what it is - whether its victim is human or animal - we cannot expect things to be much better in this world.

- Rachel Carson
"It's time to end the cruel slaughter of whales and leave these magnificent creatures alone."

- Peter Benchley
"When a man wants to murder a tiger he calls it sport; when a tiger wants to murder him he calls it ferocity."
