George Bernard Shaw
“While we ourselves are the living graves of murdered animals, how can we expect any ideal living conditions on this earth?”
“Animals are my friends…and I don't eat my friends.”
“When a man wants to murder a tiger he calls it sport; when a tiger wants to murder him he calls it ferocity”.
(1903 Man and Superman,'Maxims for Revolutionists: Crime and Punishment'.)
“I choose not to make a graveyard of my body for the rotting corpses of dead animals”.
“Man's inhumanity to man is only surpassed by his cruelty to animals”
“Even if animal experimentation was proved to be of value, it would be morally wrong”.
“Atrocities are not less atrocities when they occur in laboratories and are called medical research.”
“We are all victims of the violence that animals suffer… their liberation is also our liberation.”
“We cut the throat of a calf and hang it up by the heels to bleed to death so that our veal cutlet may be white; we nail geese to a board and cram them with food because we like the taste of liver disease; we tear birds to pieces to decorate our women's hats; we mutilate domestic animals for no reason at all except to follow an instinctively cruel fashion; and we connive at the most abominable tortures in the hope of discovering some magical cure for our own diseases by them”
