Source: One Green Planet

Fighting for animal protection of any kind is often a difficult and seemingly never-ending up high battle. News headlines can reek of despair and fresh petitions crop up daily urging us to end every sort of cruelty imaginable (and in some cases, simply beyond belief).

Truly, issues abound at every corner – from farmed animal abuses to endangered species conservation – and they just always seem to keep on coming.

Yet, victories are possible and many occur each and every year thanks to hardworking nonprofits, grassroots groups, and active citizens.

We have helped a lot of animals even just within the past decade, but as always, there is a long way to go.

To inspire us to keep moving forward, check out the following 14 quotes — all serve to remind us of exactly who we’re fighting for and why, which is something we must never forget. Committing these to memory (or better yet, knowing them by heart!) may just help you regain your strength in times of struggle and reinvigorate your desire to do good for the animals of this Earth.

  1. This one gets to the heart of the hypocrisy of who we eat by discretion—
    “But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of that proportion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy “- Plutarch

    • How many years ago did Plutarch say that? And we (well, many of us) still dont have a clue what that means. Certainly says something about our human species, doesnt it?


  2. “We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate for having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein do we err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with the 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 splendour and travail of the earth.”

  3. The birds eye view is above the turmoil and looking for every detail thats of any importance. A horses reluctance is a reminder we need to stop and think for a moment. A dogs tail wag is hello and a sign the simplest things can Show happiness. Pass it on. An eagles wings show beauty at great heights but its claws remind us Victory is in Our grasp. A sleeping rattlesnake is a reminder they are Not Always out to get you and last the toad, hes not very attractive but he always finds a way to thrive. So in short my grandpas interpretation of these above sayings is this. Keep a little distance and eye the issues holding back until the time is right, show your willingness and pass it on. Spread your wings and hold on tight dont be afraid to say whats necessary and even the cause isnt easy and people may not find it attractive it will work out if we stay the course. 1979….by R Cole. My grandfather.
