“If people were superior to animals, they’d take good care of them,” said Pooh.
-Benjamin Hoff, The Tao of Pooh
“The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.”
– Arthur Schopenhauer, The Basis of Morality
