Here are some awesome quotes that I hope will inspire some of you out there.
"If only we could overcome cruelty with compassion we should make a gigantic stride toward achieving our ultimate human potential, moving beyond the Age of Reason to the Age of Love."
"If we do not change our direction, we are likely to end up where we are headed."
"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth will find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts." ~Rachel Carson~
"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men." ~Alice Walker~
"We are not the only beings capable of rational thought, of emotions, and of mental and physical suffering. Once we begin to accept that animals do indeed suffer, we must begin to scrutinize the way in which we treat all animals, human and non-human alike, as well as the environment in which they live." ~Jane Goodall~
"Kinship with all life must be expressed with action, since belief is no longer enough." ~Michael W. Fox~
"If we allow our point of view to be known, we will sway people, but if we stand quietly and let someone expressing an opposing view go unchallenged, we hurt our cause. So if we want to end racism, sexism, speciesism, or any other exploitie practice, we must be determined not to be silent! That means breath deeply, realize only good (or at least nothing horrible!) can happen. Speak up!" ~Ingrid Newkirk~
"Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little." ~Edmund Burke~
"There is no shame in not knowing; the shame lies in not finding out!" ~Russian proverb~
"If anyone can show me, and prove to me, that I am wrong in thought or deed, I will gladly change. I seek the truth, which never yet hurt anybody. It is only persistence in self-delusion and ignorance which does harm." ~Marcus Aurelius~
"I am only one, but I am still one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something." ~Helen Keller~
"You must be the change you wish to see in th world." ~Mahatma Gandhi~
