Quotable quotes


For I do not believe there is such difference between beast and beast, in point of reason and understanding and memory, as between man and man.

  1. Here’s my favourite. It’s taken from wiki as I don’t have the book to hand.

    the savage lives within himself while social man lives outside himself and can only live in the opinion of others, so that he seems to receive the feeling of his own existence only from the judgement of others concerning him.

    Indeed, there is no difference and yet a big difference between humans and animals…
    “Isn’t man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife – birds, kangaroos, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice, foxes and dingoes – by the million in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. Then he kills domestic animals by the billion and eats them. This in turn kills man by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative – and fatal- health conditions like heart disease, kidney disease, and cancer. So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year, sends out cards praying for Peace on Earth.” ~ C. David Coats

    I don’t think I’m a savage person. Maybe only selfish. Oh yes, I am reasonably compassionate and generous but that’s not enough. To be a social being is sooo hard. I’m not sure if I heve ever tried hard enough…
