What I Want to Do: End Animal Exploitation

My Page Billboard
Animals are my passion and my goal is to try to educate others and help create a better life for animals. The cruelty in which we inflict upon our fellow brothers and sisters is sickening and beyond disturbing. I believe in a world where animals, people and any other living organism coexists in harmony.

Quotation "My world falls apart, crumbles, Ã�¯Ã�Â&
iquest;�½The centre cannot hold.�¯�&Ac
irc;¿Ã�½ There is no integrating force, only the naked fear, the urge of self-preservation. I am afraid. I am not solid, but hollow. I feel behind my eyes a numb, paralysed cavern, a pit of hell, a mimicking nothingness. I never thought. I never wrote, I never suffered. I want to kill myself, to escape from responsibility, to crawl back abjectly into the womb. I do not know who I am, where I am goingÃ�¯Ã�&Ac
irc;¿Ã�½and I am the one who has to decide the answers to these hideous questions. I long for a noble escape from freedomÃ�¯Ã�&
Acirc;¿Ã�½I am weak, tired, in revolt from the strong constructive humanitarian faith which presupposes a healthy, active intellect and will. There is nowhere to go Ã�¯Ã�Â&
iquest;�½" --Sylvia Plath

"Real revolution begins at learning. If you�¯�&Acir
c;¿Ã�½re not angry, yo...uÃ�¯Ã�&A
circ;¿Ã�½re not paying attention." --Tim McIlrath

"What do you think an artist is? An imbecile who only has eyes, if he is a painter, or ears if he is a musician, or a lyre in every chamber of his heart if he is a poet, or even, if he is a boxer, just his muscles? Far from it: at the same time he is also a political being, constantly aware of the heartbreaking, passionate, or delightful things that happen in the world, shaping himself completely in their image. How could it be possible to feel no interest in other people, and with a cool indifference to detach yourself from the very life which they bring to you so abundantly? No, painting is not done to decorate apartments. It is an instrument of war." --Pablo Picasso

"The thing you fail to grasp is that people are not basically good. We are basically selfish. We shove and clamour and cry for adoration, and beat down everyone else to get it. Life is a competition of prattling peacocks enraptured in inane mating rituals. But for all our effacing and self-importance, we are all slaves to what we fear most. You have so very much to learn. Here. Let me teach you." ~The Scarecrow

iquest;�½I have so many different personalities in me and I still feel lonely.�¯�&
Acirc;¿Ã�½ -Tori Amos

"Quiet mouths hide amazing minds." -Josh Robert Thone

"The average person is a sheep. Too many sheep means very little demand. I'm the wolf that eats the sheep" -Chris Bruce

"Well, isn't it comforting to know that being miserable is still better than being an idiot?" -Claire from Six Feet Under

"In their behaviour toward creatures, all men were Nazis. The smugness with which man could do with other species as he pleased exemplified the most extreme racist theories, the principle that might is right." -Isaac Bashevis Singer

"People often say that humans have always eaten animals, as if this is a justification for continuing the practice. According to this logic, we should not try to prevent people from murdering other people, since this has also been done since the earliest of times." -Isaac Bashevis Singer

"It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity." -Albert Einstein

iquest;�½Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.�¯�&Ac
irc;¿Ã�½ --Ernest Hemingway

iquest;�½The biggest cause of trouble in the world today is that the stupid people are so sure about things and the intelligent folks are so full of doubts.�¯�&
Acirc;¿Ã�½ --Bertrand Russell
