    animal quotes

    Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.
    ~George Eliot

    An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language.
    ~Martin Buber

    It often happens that a man is more humanely related to a cat or dog than to any human being.
    ~Henry David Thoreau

    God made all the creatures and gave them our love and our fear,
    To give sign, we and they are His children, one family here.
    ~Robert Browning

    The animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren; they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth.
    ~Henry Beston

    Old age means realising you will never own all the dogs you wanted to.
    ~Joe Gores

    On one hand the higher and domesticated animal is, so to speak, a 'bridge' between us and the rest of nature ... We must not - and, incidentally, we can't - become beasts. But we can be with a beast. It is personal enough to give the word with a real meaning; yet it remains very largely an unconscious little bundle of biological instincts. It has three legs in nature's world and one in ours. It is a link, an ambassador. Who would not wish, as Bosanquet put it, 'to have a representative in the court of Pan'? Man with dog closes a gap in the universe.
    ~C. S. Lewis

    I like these ones...
    “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated” (Mahatma Gandhi)

    Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms (George Eliot)

    The difference between friends and pets is that friends we allow into our company, pets we allow into our solitude. ~Robert Brault

    "We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals." ~ Immanual Kant

    Great thread. My favorite quote is the one by Beston.
    I love animals and the many different kinds that there are in the world. I work for [url=] Oratech [/url] which helps produce products for animals.
