#1. If you want to test cosmetics, why do it on some poor animal who hasn't done anything? They should use prisoners who have been convicted of murder or rape instead. So, rather than seeing if perfume irritates a bunny rabbit's eyes, they should throw it in Charles Manson's eyes and ask him if it hurts. - Author: Ellen DeGeneres
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Ellen DeGeneres
#2. One of the things that I have seen change that warms the cockles of my heart is what is happening in the cosmetics industry. For years, they were doing horrible things to animals in the manufacture of cosmetics, and testing of the most barbaric types; today, if you go into a drugstore and go down the [cosmetics] aisle, look at how many of them say no animal testing. I've talked with people who work in the cosmetics departments, and they tell me, Without that, you can't sell them. And that's wonderful! - Author: Bob Barker
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Bob Barker
#3. I griped about it at lunch one day to Bill Weist and Dr. Leslie Squier, our visiting psychologists from Reed College. I'd been trying to train one otter to stand on a box, I told them. No problem getting the behavior; as soon as I put the box in the enclosure, the otter rushed over and climbed on top of it. She quickly understood that getting on the box earned her a bite of fish, But. As soon as she got the picture, she began testing the parameters. 'Would you like me lying down on the box? What if I just put three feet on the box? Suppose I hang upside down from the edge of the box? Suppose I stand on it and look under it at the same time? How about if I put my front paws on it and bark?' For twenty minutes she offered me everything imaginable except just getting on the box and standing there. It was infuriating, and strangely exhausting. The otter would eat her fish and then run back to the box and present some new, fantastic variation and look at me expectantly (spitefully, even, I thought) while I struggled once more to decide if what she was doing fit my criteria or not.

My psychologist friends flatly refused to believe me; no animal acts like that. If you reinforce a response, you strengthen the chance that the animal will repeat what it was doing when it was reinforced; you don't precipitate some kind of guessing game.

So I showed them. We all went down to the otter tank, and I took the other otter and attempted to get it to swim through a small - Author: Karen Pryor

#4. Scientists should not do animal testing if there is any alternative, but subject to that, I would support it on grounds of the medical benefits. - Author: David Sainsbury, Baron Sainsbury Of Turville
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by David Sainsbury, Baron Sainsbury Of Turville
#5. The medical argument for animal testing doesn't stand up. Even if it did, I don't think we should kill other species. We think we're so much better; I'm not sure we are. I tell people, We've beaten into submission every animal on the face of the Earth, so we are the clear winners of whatever battle is going on between the species. Couldn't we be generous? I really do think it's time to get nice. No need to keep beating up on them. I think we've got to show that we're kind. - Author: Paul McCartney
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Paul McCartney
#6. In mythos and fairy tales, deities and other great spirits test the hearts of humans by showing up in various forms that disguise their divinity. They show up in robes, rags, silver sashes, or with muddy feet. They show up with skin dark as old wood, or in scales made of rose petal, as a frail child, as a lime-yellow old woman, as a man who cannot speak, or as an animal who can. The great powers are testing to see if humans have yet learned to recognize the greatness of soul in all its varying forms. - Author: Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
#7. The right to lead a life free of fear is a fundamental right of all living beings. But this fundamental right is being brutally violated by humans in animal testing, meat and dairy industry, circus, zoos, aquariums, and sports. - Author: Ama H. Vanniarachchy
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Ama H. Vanniarachchy
#8. It seems to me of great importance to teach children respect for life. Towards this end, experiments on living animals in classrooms should be stopped. To encourage cruelty in the name of science can only destroy the finer emotions of affection and sympathy, and breed an unfeeling callousness in the young towards suffering in all living creatures. - Author: Eleanor Roosevelt
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#9. I love to help women cut through all the labeling loopholes to find the best personal and oral care products on the market. This includes, of course, ingredients, but also recyclable packaging, products with expiration dates, examining company values (which includes no animal testing), and more. - Author: Sophie Heyman Uliano
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Sophie Heyman Uliano
#10. The other animals humans eat, use in science, hunt, trap, and exploit in a variety of ways, have a life of their own that is of importance to them apart from their utility to us. They are not only in the world, they are aware of it. What happens to them matters to them. Each has a life that fares better or worse for the one whose life it is. - Author: Tom Regan
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Tom Regan
#11. No screen?" She nudged him away, scanned the walls. "Seriously? What kind of place is this?"
"The sort where people use bedrooms for sex and sleep, which is exactly waht I have in mind." To prove it, he tumbled her onto the bed.
It squeaked.
"What is that? Did you hear that? Is there a farm animal in here?"
"I'm fairly certain they keep those outside. It's the bed." He tugged her shirt over her head.
Testing, she lifted her hips, let them fall. "Oh, for God's sake. We can't do this on a talking bed. Everybody in the house will know what's going on in here."
Enjoying himself, he nuzzled at her throat. "I believe they already suspect we have sex."
"Maybe, but that's different than having the bed yell out, 'Whoopee!'"
Was it any wonder he adored her? he thought. - Author: J.D. Robb
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by J.D. Robb
#12. Animal testing, including vivisection, only tests the ability of the human being to be inhuman."
-Shenita Etwaroo - Author: Shenita Etwaroo
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Shenita Etwaroo
#13. Instead of answering her as soon as he saw her hair grow electric, her face more vivid, her eyes like lightning, her body restless and jerky like a racehorse's, he retired behind this wall of objective understanding, this gentle testing and acceptance of her, just as one watches an animal in the zoo and smiles at his antics, but is not drawn into this mood. It was this which left Lilith in a state of isolation - indeed, like a wild animal in an absolute desert. - Author: Anais Nin
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Anais Nin
#14. I remember one bobcat they had in here - now bobcats are an endangered species in this neck of the woods - they'd caught it somewhere and they must have put that cat through a dozen rounds of burn experiments before they finally determined that it was utterly useless to them. Like an empty beer can. And then you know what they did to it? Claudius was late for a lunch date so rather thanput the destroyed but still breathing animal to sleep, he picked it up by its hind legs and simply smashed its head against a wall repeatedly until it was dead. How can I forget it: I was the one told to clean up the mess. The head dented in. The eyes slowly closing. The once proud claws hanging down, stunned and lifeless, the utter senselessness of it all, and the hate, a hatred that was consummated in me which is as dangerous a hormone, or chemical, or portion of the brain, as any neutron bomb. Except that I didnt know how to explode. I was like a computer without a keyboard, a bird without wings. Roaring inside. I wanted to kill that man. To do unto others what they had done unto me. I was that bobcat, you better believe it. - Author: Michael Tobias
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Michael Tobias
#15. During my medical education at the University of Basle I found vivisection horrible, barbarous and above all unnecessary - Author: Carl Jung
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Carl Jung
#16. My own experience of over 60 years in biomedical research amply demonstrated that without the use of animals and of human beings, it would have been impossible to acquire the important knowledge needed to prevent much suffering and premature death not only among humans but also among [other] animals. - Author: Albert Sabin
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Albert Sabin
#17. Kindliness seems to exist primarily as an animal instinct, so deeply rooted that mental degeneracy, which works from the top down,does not destroy it until the mind sinks to the lower grades of idiocy. - Author: Charles Horton Cooley
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Charles Horton Cooley
#18. The passions also, the winds of life, would be useless, if not injurious, did the substance which composes our thinking being, after we have thought in vain, only become the support of vegetable life, and invigorate a cabbage, or blush in a rose. The appetites would answer every earthly purpose, and produce more moderate and permanent happiness. But the powers of the soul that are of little use here, and, probably, disturb our animal enjoyments, even while conscious dignity makes us glory in possessing them, prove that life is merely an education, a state of infancy, of which the only hopes worth cherishing should not be sacrificed. I mean, therefore to infer, that we ought to have a precise idea of what we wish to attain by education, for the immortality of the soul is contradicted by the actions of many people, who firmly profess the belief. - Author: Mary Wollstonecraft
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#19. The wolf turned to Rachel. She was afraid to run, afraid fleeing would make it chase her. Somewhere in the stored files of her mind, she remembered one should not look directly at a menacing dog, but she couldn't take her eyes from it. - Author: G.G. Collins
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by G.G. Collins
#20. I think we're insecure about our self-imposed spot at the top of the pyramid of life. New studies are continually undermining our superiority complex and forcing us to reconsider our relationship to animals. - Author: Jonathan Balcombe
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Jonathan Balcombe
#21. There is no particular merit in being nice to one's fellow man... We can never establish with certainty what part of our relations with others is a result of our emotions - love apathy, charity of malice - and what part is predetermines by the constant power play among individuals.
True human goodness, in all its purity and freedom, can come to the fore only when its recipient has no power. Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buries from view), consists of attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental débâcle, a débâcle so fundamental all others stem from it. - Author: Milan Kundera
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Milan Kundera
#22. Nature has not placed us in an inferior rank to men, no more than the females of other animals, where we see no distinction of capacity, though I am persuaded if there was a commonwealth of rational horses ... it would be an established maxim amongst them that a mare could not be taught to pace. - Author: Mary Wortley Montagu
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Mary Wortley Montagu
#23. A glad welcome to this affirmation by a group of psychologists that the self does not stop at the skin nor even with the circle of human relationships but is interwoven with the lives of trees and animals and soil; that caring for the deepest needs of persons and caring for our threatened planet are not in conflict. - Author: Mary Catherine Bateson
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Mary Catherine Bateson
#24. The evolution of the human race will not be accomplished in the ten thousand years of tame animals, but in the million years of wild animals, because man is, and always will be, a wild animal. - Author: Charles Galton Darwin
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Charles Galton Darwin
#25. There's no money in Thomas More's Utopia, nor private property, either - these things are too ugly for the Utopians, who must be protected from life's rougher aspects. The Zapolets, a nearby tribe, fight some of their wars for them. Slaves butcher their meat. Thomas More worries that the Utopians would lose their delicate affections and merciful sympathies if they did those deeds themselves. The Zapolets, we are assured, delight in slaughter and rapine, but there's no discussion of the impact of butchery on the slaves. No Utopia is Utopia for everyone. - Author: Karen Joy Fowler
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Karen Joy Fowler
#26. Wouldn't it be great to see a line in all movie credits that truthfully says, 'Nobody was harmed in the making of this film, and at the cast party, all animals got a belly belly belly rub.' - Author: Elayne Boosler
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Elayne Boosler
#27. A part of me feels like I was an animal in my past life that wasn't treated very nicely. - Author: Leona Lewis
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Leona Lewis
#28. I took a walk on the cool sand dunes, brittle grass overgrown, and above me, in the night sky, above me, I saw. Bitter taste of unripe peaches and a smell I could not place, nor could I escape. I remembered other times that I could not escape. I remembered other smells. The moon slunk like a wounded animal. The world spun like it had lost control. Concentrate only on breathing and let go of ideas you had about nutrition and alarm clocks. I took a walk on the cool sand dunes, brittle grass overgrown, and above me, in the night sky, above me, I saw.
This message brought to you by Coca-Cola. - Author: Joseph Fink
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Joseph Fink
#29. I shall borrow two words used for a slightly different purpose by the great demographer Alfred Lotka to distinguish between the two systems of heredity enjoyed by man: endosomatic or internal heredity for the ordinary or genetical heredity we have in common with animals; and exosomatic or external heredity for the non-genetic heredity that is peculiarly our own - the heredity that is mediated through tradition, by which I mean the transfer of information through non-genetic channels from one generation to the next. - Author: Peter Medawar
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Peter Medawar
#30. They've found this spider, in the jungle. Three foot long, it eats chicken. Bit weird, innit. People moan saying that you shouldn't lock animals up and all the rest of it, but to be honest I wish it was locked up. The idea that it's roaming in a jungle ... get it locked up. - Author: Karl Pilkington
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Karl Pilkington
#31. I adore recipes that make use of one cut of meat or a whole animal to create a complex dish, loaded with flavour. - Author: Yotam Ottolenghi
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Yotam Ottolenghi
#32. We are not only gregarious animals, liking to be in sight of our fellows, but we have an innate propensity to get ourselves noticed, and noticed favorably, by our kind. - Author: William James
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by William James
#33. Wolves are the witches of the animal world. - Author: Katherine Rundell
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Katherine Rundell
#34. Count yourself lucky. I watched my entire family as they were eaten alive by the very pack of animals you have downstairs in your house with your child. The blood of my parents flowed from their bodies through the floorboards and drenched me while I lay in terror of being torn apart by them. I was only a year older than your child when it happened. My parents gave their lives for mine and I watched as they gave them. So you'll have to excuse me if I have a hard time thinking good of any animal except those who are dead or caged. (Angelia) - Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#35. For centuries poets, some poets, have tried to give a voice to the animals, and readers, some readers, have felt empathy and sorrow. If animals did have voices, and they could speak with the tongues of angels--at the very least with the tongues of angels--they would be unable to save themselves from us. What good would language do? Their mysterious otherness has not saved them, nor have their beautiful songs and coats and skins and shells and eyes. We discover the remarkable intelligence of the whale, the wolf, the elephant--it does not save them, nor does our awareness of the complexity of their lives. Their strength, their skills, their swiftness, the beauty of their flights. It matters not, it seems, whether they are large or small, proud or shy, docile or fierce, wild or domesticated, whether they nurse their young or brood patiently on eggs. If they eat meat, we decry their viciousness; if they eat grasses and seeds, we dismiss them as weak. There is not one of them, not even the songbird who cannot, who does not, conflict with man and his perceived needs and desires. St. Francis converted the wolf of Gubbio to reason, but he performed this miracle only once and as miracles go, it didn't seem to capture the public's fancy. Humans don't want animals to reason with them. It would be a disturbing, unnerving, diminishing experience; it would bring about all manner of awkwardness and guilt. - Author: Joy Williams
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Joy Williams
#36. ...watch an animal, and be reminded of what total integrity looks like. - Author: Douglas Green
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Douglas Green
#37. The role of the animal messenger in the dreams of modern city-dwellers is often to recall us to our wild side, and the natural path of our energy. - Author: Robert Moss
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Robert Moss
#38. Our land is more valuable than your money. It will last forever. It will not even perish by the flames of fire. As long as the sun shines and the waters flow, this land will be here to give life to men and animals. We cannot sell the lives of men and animals. It was put here by the Great Spirit and we cannot sell it because it does not belong to us - Author: Crowfoot
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Crowfoot
#39. At least 260 species of animal have been noted exhibiting homosexual behavior but only one species of animal ever, so far as we know, has exhibited homophobic behavior - and that's the human being. - Author: Stephen Fry
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Stephen Fry
#40. Of women, the most we can say, not being Frenchmen, is that they are burrowing animals. - Author: Lawrence Durrell
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Lawrence Durrell
#41. By exerting its will, Descartes declared, the immaterial human mind could cause the material human machine to move. This bears repeating, for it is an idea that, more than any other, has thrown a stumbling block across the path of philosophers who have attempted to argue that the mind is immaterial: for how could something immaterial act efficaciously on something as fully tangible as a body? Immaterial mental substance is so ontologically different-that is, such a different sort of thing-from the body it affects that getting the twain to meet has been exceedingly difficult. To be sure, Descartes tried. He argued that the mental substance of the mind interacts with the matter of the brain through the pineal gland, the organ he believed was moved directly by the human soul. The interaction allowed the material brain to be physically directed by the immaterial mind through what Descartes called "animal spirits"-basically a kind of hydraulic fluid. - Author: Jeffrey M. Schwartz
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Jeffrey M. Schwartz
#42. But in every constitution some large degree of animal vigor is necessary as material foundation for the higher qualities of the art. - Author: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#43. It is true that the reluctance to abstain from animal food, in those who have been long accustomed to its stimulus, is so great in some persons of weak minds, as to be scarcely overcome; but this is far from bringing any argument in its favour - Author: Percy Bysshe Shelley
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#44. Gerard's spirit animal is a gazelle - that's how he's always answered - Frankie would definitely be a wolverine, I would be a shark because of my inability to sit still, and Ray? Ray would be ... I'm thinking super intelligent, super articulate, I would think owl. - Author: Mikey Way
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Mikey Way
#45. They'd branded me like some kind of animal.
Lower than an animal.
A number. - Author: Samantha Shannon
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Samantha Shannon
#46. But there are thoughts we think in the forward part of our brains, and then there are those whose origins are much deeper, in the animal part, the part that remembers the terrors of the open savanna at night, the oldest part that was there before the primordial voice that spoke the words I AM. - Author: Rick Yancey
Unreliability Of Animal Testing quotes by Rick Yancey
#47. We really kind of pioneered a technology here at Fossil Rim where we use ultrasound on both our white rhinos and black rhinos and we can even document pregnancy in animals at about 30 days. - Author: Bruce Williams
