Animal souls

"A dog is the only thing on earth that will love you more than you love yourself." ~ Josh Billings

Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself. - JAMES ANTHONY FROUDE, Oceana

If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected.
CHIEF SEATTLE OF THE SUWAMISH TRIBE, letter to President Franklin Pierce

Animals are, like all living things, self-building, self-maintaining, and self-protecting embodiments of their genetic designs, and they are therefore in human eyes objects of their own operations.
A. VAN GINKEL, General Principles of Human Power

God gave unto the Animals
A wisdom past our power to see:
Each knows innately how to live,
Which we must learn laboriously.  - MARGARET ATWOOD, The Year of the Flood
