There are a lot of great quotes about animal rights. Do you have a favorite?
Here are some which I really like from Isaac Bashevis Singer, a Nobel Laureate, who became vegetarian after drawing connections between atrocities faced by human beings and the systematic exploitation of animals at slaughterhouses.
“How can we pray to God for mercy if we ourselves have no mercy?”
“[M]y vegetarianism is a great protest. And I dream that there may be a whole religion based on protest … against everything which is not just: about the fact that there is so much sickness, so much death, so much cruelty. My vegetarianism is my religion, and it’s part of my protest against the conduct of the world.”
