Animals quotes
Animals
Mankind differs from the animals only by a little and most people throw that away.

- Confucius
Animals awaken, first facially, then bodily. Men's bodies wake before their faces do. The animal sleeps within its body, man sleeps with his body in his mind.

- Chazal
When man learns to understand and control his own behavior as well as he is learning to understand and control the behavior of crop plants and domestic animals, he may be justified in believing that he has become civilized.

- Stakman, E. G.
Sadder than destitution, sadder than a beggar is the man who eats alone in public. Nothing more contradicts the laws of man or beast, for animals always do each other the honor of sharing or disputing each other's food.

- Baudrillard, Jean
All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.

- Orwell, George
The elephant, not only the largest but the most intelligent of animals, provides us with an excellent example. It is faithful and tenderly loving to the female of its choice, mating only every third year and then for no more than five days, and so secretly as never to be seen, until, on the sixth day, it appears and goes at once to wash its whole body in the river, unwilling to return to the herd until thus purified. Such good and modest habits are an example to husband and wife.

- Francis De Sales, St.
Animals often strike us as passionate machines.

- Hoffer, Eric
The desire to take medicine is perhaps the greatest feature which distinguishes man from animals.

- Sir William Osler
Fork, n. An instrument used chiefly for the purpose of putting dead animals into the mouth.

- Ambrose Bierce
What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected.

- Seattle, Chief
Man is not like other animals in the ways that are really significant: Animals have instincts, we have taxes.

- Erving Goffman
Weaseling out of things is important to learn. It's what seperates us from the animals. Except the weasels.

- Homer Simpson
Shall we never have done with that cliche, so stupid that it could only be human, about the sympathy of animals for man when he is unhappy? Animals love happiness almost as much as we do. A fit of crying disturbs them, they'll sometimes imitate sobbing, and for a moment they'll reflect our sadness. But they flee unhappiness as they flee fever, and I believe that in the long run they are capable of boycotting it.

- Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Human beings are the only animals of which I am thoroughly and cravenly afraid.

- Shaw, George Bernard
Thinking clearly and effectively is the greatest asset of any human being. We are constantly reminded that the one superiority that man has over other animals is the ability to think. It is primarily our ability to think that sets us apart from other animals.

- Lorayne, Harry
I shoot the Hippopotamus with bullets made of platinum, because if I use the leaden one his hide is sure to flatten em.

- Belloc, Hilaire
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
Who can guess how much industry and providence and affection we have caught from the pantomime of brutes?

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.

- George Eliot
The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

- Gandhi, Mahatma
