~ James Herriot
People speak sometimes about the “bestial” cruelty of man, but that is terribly unjust and offensive to beasts, no animal could ever be so cruel as a man, so artfully, so artistically cruel.
~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky
You can judge a man’s true character by the way he treats his fellow animals.
~ Paul McCartney
