Jay Leno –"McDonalds announced it's considering a more humane way of slaughtering its animals. You know they fatten them up and then kill them. You know the same thing they do to their customers, isn't it?"

Romain Rolland — "To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal.

Leonardo da Vinci — "The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men."
