Quotes of the month:

"Always hold firmly to the thought that each one of us can do something to bring some portion of misery to an end." Author unknown

"The assumption that animals are without rights, and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance, is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality." -- Arthur Schopenhauer, German Philosopher

"A man is truly ethical only when he obeys the compulsion to help all life which he is able to assist, and shrinks from injuring anything that lives." -- Albert Schweitzer, Alsatian Theologian, Musician, and Medical Missionary
