"If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals."
~ Albert Einstein
“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centres of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
– Robert Kennedy
"Our grandchildren will ask us one day: 'Where were you during the Holocaust of the animals? What did you do against these horrifying crimes? ' We won't be able to offer the same excuse for the second time: that we didn't know."
Dr. Helmut Kaplan (b. 1952)
good one, bigG!
sometime people think they shouldn't do anything because they can't do everything, but the way to look at it is
you don't have to do everything, but you can always do something.
This thread is great, I can always come here for inspiration!
It is people like you and others who lead the way of inspiring others.
"Revolutions are never fought by turning the other cheek. Revolutions are never based upon loving your enemy and praying for those who spitefully use you. Revolutions are never waged singing, 'We Shall Overcome.' Revolutions are never compromising. Revolutions are never based upon negotiations. Revolutions are based upon bloodshed. ..."
Malcolm X (1925-1965)
"Kindness and compassion towards all living beings is a mark of a civilized society. Racism, economic deprival, dog fighting and cock fighting, bullfighting and rodeos are all cut from the same defective fabric: violence. Only when we have become nonviolent towards all life will we have learned to live well ourselves."
