"Life is life -

whether in a cat, or dog or man. There is no difference there between a cat or a man. The idea of difference is a human conception for man's own advantage."

- Sri Aurobindo, Indian scholar, evolutionary philosopher, poet, mystic, and yogi, among other things.

My thanks for this quote to Christine Heidt of Quebec, who posted it with her petition signature, prefacing it with: "People are too easily killing animals. We have heinous murderers who get better treatment just because they are humans."
