These are seven quotes about being compassionate to animals, that have inspired me on my journey.
“There slowly grew up in me an unshakable conviction that we have no right to inflict suffering and death on another living creature, unless there is some unavoidable necessity for it.” ~Albert Schweitzer
“You can judge a man’s character by the way he treats his fellow animals.” ~Paul McCartney
“If a man aspires toward a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.” ~Albert Einstein
“We don’t need to eat anyone who would run, swim, or fly away if he could.” ~James Cromwell
“You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If he eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I’ll buy you a new car.” ~Harvey Diamond
“People often say that humans have always eaten animals, as is this is a justification to continuing the practice. According to this logic, we should not try to prevent people from murdering other people, since this has also been done since the earliest of times.” ~Isaac Bashevis Singer
“Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.” ~Albert Schweitzer
