      Martin Luther King

      "Eines Tages wird auch die Absurdität des universellen menschlichen Glaubens an die Versklavung anderer Tiere spürbar werden. Wir werden dann unsere Seelen entdeckt haben es mehr Wert geworden sein, diesen Planeten mit ihnen zu teilen!"

      ""One day the absurdity of the almost universal human belief in the slavery of other animals will be palpable. We shall then have discovered our souls and become worthier of sharing this planet with them" -Martin Luther King, Jr"


      "So lange wie der Mensch fortfährt, der unbarmherzige Vernichter niederer Lebewesen zu sein, wird er Gesundheit und Frieden nicht kennen. Denn so lange wie Menschen Tiere massakrieren, werden sie einander töten. Wahrhaftig, er, welcher den Samen von Mord und Leid sät, kann nicht Freude und Liebe ernten."

      "As long as Man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.""

      Albert Schweitzer

      "Bis er den Kreis seines Mitgefühls auf alles Lebendige ausdehnt, wird der Mensch selbst keinen Frieden finden. (rückübersetzt aus der englischen Fassung, nicht das Original)"

      "Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace."
