"In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned, and once large sums of money are at stake, it will be defended to the end by otherwise intelligent people."
- Ruth Harrison - British animal welfare activist and author
"In fact, let’s just call things what they are. When a man’s love of finery clouds his moral judgement, that is vanity. When he let’s his demanding palate make his moral choices, that is gluttony. When he ascribes the divine will to his own whims, that is pride. And when he gets angry at being reminded of animal suffering that his own daily choices might help to avoid, that is moral cowardice."
