Review Text

    This book is a collection of writings, poetry, and deep thoughts of many of the world's great humanitarians, thinkers, philosophers and people who just happen to understand that animals are living, breathing "suffering" creatures just like us. You will find profound words here from such greats as Gandhi, Albert Schweitzer, Tolstoy, Albert Einstein, Mark Twain, and more recently, Norman Cousins and Jacques Cousteau.The main theme of this book is that people must understand that until we embrace the underlying unity of all life, no solution to human violence is possible. Pythagorus, a Greek philosopher and mathemetican, said..."As long as man will harm and kill animals, we will kill each other."The book is arranged alphabetically by writer. It is an invaluable reference for educators, students, and all who seek answers to life's tragic problems. Read it and you cannot help but be enlightened and, perhaps, moved to act.As Dr. Albert Schweitzer said, "Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace."Jon Winne-Tyson did a masterful job editing this book. It was orginally published in 1985. I strongly believe this book should be included in the curriculum of institutions of higher learning everywhere. What better way to gradually raise the consciousness of humanity?

    Originally published in England in 1985, Jon Wynne-Tyson took six years to compile this wonderful, thought-provoking book.The quotes are listed alphabetically by author, and in the introduction to this anthology, Wynne-Tyson points out the connection between how we treat non-humans and each other:"Clear minds down the centuries have seen that violence man shows to man is inextricably linked to the violence we have inflicted upon other species and our shared environment", and recent studies on serial killers indicates that this is a fact.There are many quotes on humanity and compassion towards all living things, and our environment as a whole, as well as specific topics like vivisection and vegetarianism, and they come from great minds like Leonardo Da Vinci, Leo Tolstoy, and Albert Einstein, to name a few. There are four pages of excerpts from the writings of Dr. Catherine Roberts that are remarkable in their insight, and it's a section that should not be missed.Animal rights is the subject closest and dearest to my heart, as I believe in the equality of all creatures, and appreciate the collected wisdom of this book.
