Mahatma Gandhi - "I abhor vivisection with my whole soul. All the scientific discoveries stained with innocent blood I count as of no consequence."[2]

Schopenhauer - "The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality."[3]

Thomas A. Edison - "Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages."[4]
