  • “None of us is as smart as all of us.  Synergy means two plus two equals five.”
  • “Cruelty to an animal is something we learn.  Put a child in a room with a toy and a bunny.  If she plays with the toy and is cruel to the bunny, I will buy you a new car.”
  • “Animals must be off the menu because tonight they are screaming in terror in the slaughterhouses, in crates, and in cages.  Vile ignoble gulags of despair!  You see, I heard the screams of my dying father as his body was ravaged by the cancer that killed him.  And, I realized I had heard those screams before.  In the slaughterhouse, their eyes stabbed out and their tendons slashed, on the cattle ships to the Middle East, and the dying mother whale as a harpoon explodes in her brain as she calls out to her calf.  Their cries were the cries of my father.  And, I discovered that when we suffer, we suffer as equals.  And in their capacity to suffer, a dog is a pig is a bear is a boy. Meat today is the new asbestos, more murderous than tobacco.”
