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
Until he extends the circle of compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. I hold that the more helpless a creature the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man.
If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.
All beings tremble before violence. All fear death, all love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?
The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for whites or women for men.
I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being.
