Text Versions
We are territorial, power-hungry and even more brutal than chimpanzees  (Chimpanzees Quotes) It is inconceivable that you would ever see two chimpanzees carrying a log together  (Chimpanzees Quotes) In the future, I can imagine that we will genetically modify ourselves using the genes that have doubled our life span since we were chimpanzees  (Chimpanzees Quotes) Wild groups of chimpanzees attack their enemies like gangs. What they completely lack, precisely because of their strong territorial behavior, is a friendly relationship with their neighbors  (Chimpanzees Quotes) Chimpanzees will eat a little bit of meat. But, they never eat dairy products, and no other animal would do that  (Chimpanzees Quotes) He couldn’t tell the difference between one politician and another. They were all formlessly enthusiastic chimpanzees to him  (Chimpanzees Quotes) Chimpanzees, more than any other living creature, have helped us to understand that there is no sharp line between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom. It’s a very blurry line, and it’s getting more blurry all the time.  (Chimpanzees Quotes) There’s a bizarre prejudice that exists in the New York publishing establishment that any work outside the tri-state area is being done by trained chimpanzees, that geography screens out sensibility. There’s an idea that all Los Angeles writing is about the movie industry, that it’s vulgar, shallow and banal.  (Chimpanzees Quotes) When you think of intelligence, don’t think of a college professor; think of human beings as opposed to chimpanzees. If you don’t have human intelligence, you’re not even in the game.  (Chimpanzees Quotes) Other people have talked about chimpanzees being a window into the past, which I suppose is true, in a way.  (Chimpanzees Quotes) In technological development, in production of material goods and creature comforts, we’ve challenged the very gods, but psychologically, emotionally, we’re scarcely more than chimpanzees with bulldozers, baboons with big bombs.  (Chimpanzees Quotes) Chimps don’t have language. Humans actively instruct others about how things should be done. Chimpanzees probably pick up cultural traditions by observation.  (Chimpanzees Quotes) I miss the early days; I do. I was so lucky. I basically had it to myself, learning about these chimpanzees. Nobody knew anything about them. Discovering their different personalities, different life histories. I was lucky.  (Chimpanzees Quotes) Such is the breathtaking speciesism of our Christian-inspired attitudes, the abortion of a single human zygote can arouse more moral solicitude and righteous indignation than the vivasection of any number of intelligent adult chimpanzees! The only reason we can be comfortable with such a double standard is that the intermediates between humans and chimps are all dead.  (Chimpanzees Quotes) I’d like to see animals removed from the entertainment business. Chimpanzees and apes won’t perform unless you beat them. Circuses keep elephants in chains 90 percent of the time. Elephants need freedom of movement. In circuses, they live in cramped quarters, which is not the life intended for them by nature. Some are beaten daily, forced to do ridiculous tricks and robbed of every shred of dignity.  (Chimpanzees Quotes) Charles Darwin and I and you broke off from the family tree from chimpanzees about five million years ago. They’re still our closest genetic kin. We share 98.8 percent of the genes. We share more genes with them than zebras do with horses. And we’re also their closest cousin. They have more genetic relation to us than to gorillas.  (Chimpanzees Quotes) When it comes to social interaction, the chimpanzees appear to be just as intelligent as we are  (Chimpanzees Quotes) The chimpanzees could tear me apart in no time. They’re many times stronger than we are  (Chimpanzees Quotes) Chimpanzees, more than any other living creature, have helped us to understand that there is no sharp line between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom. It’s a very blurry line, and it’s getting more blurry all the time  (Chimpanzees Quotes) Chimpanzees, typically, kiss and embrace after fights. They first make eye contact from a distance to see the mood of the others. Then they approach and kiss and embrace  (Chimpanzees Quotes) Male chimpanzees have an extraordinarily strong drive for dominance. They’re constantly jockeying for position  (Chimpanzees Quotes) We are part of the world creation, and we ourselves create nothing. Our knowledge allows us to make use of all the forces already in existence, our art to interpret emotions already felt. One big war, an epidemic, and we collapse into ignorance and darkness, fit sons of chimpanzees  (Chimpanzees Quotes) I’d like to see animals removed from the entertainment business. Chimpanzees and apes won’t perform unless you beat them. Circuses keep elephants in chains 90 percent of the time. Elephants need freedom of movement. In circuses, they live in cramped quarters, which is not the life intended for them by nature. Some are beaten daily, forced to do ridiculous tricks and robbed of every shred of dignity  (Chimpanzees Quotes) I’ve argued that many of what philosophers call moral sentiments can be seen in other species. In chimpanzees and other animals, you see examples of sympathy, empathy, reciprocity, a willingness to follow social rules. Dogs are a good example of a species that have and obey social rules; that’s why we like them so much, even though they’re large carnivores  (Chimpanzees Quotes) When you think of intelligence, don’t think of a college professor; think of human beings as opposed to chimpanzees. If you don’t have human intelligence, you’re not even in the game  (Chimpanzees Quotes) We are unique. Chimpanzees are unique. Dogs are unique. But we humans are just not as different as we used to think  (Chimpanzees Quotes) Our social life is literally primal, in the sense that chimpanzees and gorillas, our closest relatives among the primates, are also social  (Chimpanzees Quotes) Chimpanzees have given me so much. The long hours spent with them in the forest have enriched my life beyond measure. What I have learned from them has shaped my understanding of human behavior, of our place in nature  (Chimpanzees Quotes) I’m always pushing for human responsibility. Given that chimpanzees and many other animals are sentient and sapient, then we should treat them with respect  (Chimpanzees Quotes)
