Animals quotes
Animals
The capacity of human beings to bore one another seems to be vastly greater than that of any other animals.

- H. L. Mencken
Courage and conviction are powerful weapons against an enemy who depends only on fists or guns. Animals know when you are afraid; a coward knows when you are not.

- Seabury, David
MAN, n. An animal so lost in rapturous contemplation of what he thinks he is as to overlook what he indubitably ought to be. His chief occupation is extermination of other animals and his own species, which, however, multiplies with such insistent rapidity as to infest the whole habitable earth and Canada. When the world was young and Man was new, And everything was pleasant, Distinctions Nature never drew 'Mongst kings and priest and peasant. We're not that way at present, Save here in this Republic, where We have that old regime, For all are kings, however bare Their backs, howe'er extreme Their hunger. And, indeed, each has a voice To accept the tyrant of his party's choice. A citizen who would not vote, And, therefore, was detested, Was one day with a tarry coat (With feathers backed and breasted) By patriots invested. "It is your duty," cried the crowd, "Your ballot true to cast For the man o'your choice." He humbly bowed, And explained his wicked past: "That's what I very gladly would have done, Dear patriots, but he has never run." Apperton Duke

- Ambrose Bierce
Animals are my friends, and I don't eat my friends.

- George Bernard Shaw
Books have the same enemies as people: fire, humidity, animals, weather, and their own content.

- Paul Valery
It is only by language that we rise above them [the lower animals]óby language, which is the parent, not the child, of thought.

- Oscar Wilde
The fatter the flea the leaner the dog.

- Proverb, German
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.

- Butler, Samuel
I wanted to talk to the animals like Dr. Doolittle.

- Jane Goodall
At his best, man is the noblest of all animals; separated from law and justice he is the worst.

- Aristotle
A camel is a horse designed by a committee.

To err is human also in so far as animals seldom or never err, or at least only the cleverest of them do so.

- Lichtenberg, Georg C.
The animals of the planet are in desperate peril... Without free animal life I believe we will lose the spiritual equivalent of oxygen.

- Alice Walker
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.

- Montagu, Lady Mary Wortley
Without doubt God is the universal moving force, but each being is moved according to the nature that God has given it. He directs angels, man, animals, brute matter, in sum all created things, but each according to its nature, and man having been created free, he is freely led. This rule is truly the eternal law and in it we must believe.

- Maistre, Joseph De
MAMMALIA, n.pl. A family of vertebrate animals whose females in a state of nature suckle their young, but when civilized and enlightened put them out to nurse, or use the bottle.

- Ambrose Bierce
The difference between man and animals is that we don't use our tongue to clean our genitals.

- Rimmer (from Red Dwarf)
Eagles do not beget Doves.

- Motto
It's a lot like nature. You only have as many animals as the ecosystem can support and you only have as many friends as you can tolerate the bitching of.

- Randy K. Milholland
What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god -- the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals!

- Shakespeare, William
