Circuses Quotes

Text Versions
The people long eagerly for just two things. Bread and circuses  (Circuses Quotes) I always liked circuses, so I would have enjoyed that  (Circuses Quotes) Give them bread and circuses and they will never revolt  (Circuses Quotes) Two things only the people actually desire: bread and circuses  (Circuses Quotes) But if you want to change the world, don’t be afraid of the circuses  (Circuses Quotes) But if you want to change the world, don’t be afraid of the circuses  (Circuses Quotes) Now that no one buys our votes, the public has long since cast off its cares; for the people that once bestowed commands, consulships, legions, and all else, now meddles no more and longs eagerly for just two things - bread and circuses.  (Circuses Quotes) Attempts to defend amusement parks and circuses on the grounds that they ‘educate’ people about animals should not be taken seriously. Such enterprises are part of the commercial entertainment industry. The most important lesson they teach impressionable young minds is that it is acceptable to keep animals in captivity for human amusement.  (Circuses Quotes) Several countries - among them Austria, Costa Rica, Denmark, Finland, India, Israel and Sweden - ban or severely restrict the use of wild animals in circuses. In Brazil, a movement to ban wild animals from circuses started after hungry lions managed to grab and devour a small boy.  (Circuses Quotes) Luckily, I was raised by a kind of gypsy family, which is why I always get along better with people who worked in circuses than with kids of other actors. My mom was so carefree with us in a beautiful way. We were used to sleeping anywhere.  (Circuses 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.  (Circuses Quotes) In most countries, it is possible to visit zoos and see bored animals pacing back and forth in cages, with nothing to do but wait for the next meal. Circuses are even worse places for animals. Their living conditions are deplorable, especially in travelling circuses where cages have to be small so that they can go on the road.  (Circuses Quotes) We love against the night, burning like stars against the darkness of bread and circuses  (Circuses Quotes) The purpose of bread and circuses is, as Neil Postman said in his book Amusing Ourselves to Death, to distract, to divert emotional energy towards the absurd and the trivial and the spectacle while you are ruthlessly stripped of power.  (Circuses Quotes) It is up to the public to stop attending these theatrical, and aquatic shows, and circuses with wild animals. The rhetoric about how the animals are happy and well cared for are lies. Don’t be swayed by them. The money behind these shows is huge; there is nothing good about them.  (Circuses Quotes) It’s harder to take politics seriously, to understand the issues, than it is to drown it all in a sea of scorn. And while the world cries out for greater analysis and insight, we are distracted by bread and circuses, aka the ‘Great British Bake-Off’ and ‘Tumble.’ We should rediscover our tradition of satire. Of speaking truth unto power.  (Circuses Quotes) There is an obvious connection, on the declining Roman empire’s bread and circuses model, between political enthusiasm for public spectacles and the periods when we are least able to pay for them.  (Circuses Quotes) The general public thinks all little people are in circuses or sideshows. We have doctors, nurses, just about every field covered  (Circuses Quotes) A ‘civilization’ that makes such a ridiculous fuss about alleged ‘war crimes’ - acts of violence against the actual or potential enemies of one’s cause - and tolerates slaughterhouses and vivisection laboratories, and circuses and the fur industry (infliction of pain upon creatures that can never be for or against any cause), does not deserve to live.  (Circuses 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.

The rhetoric about how the animals are happy and well cared for are lies. Don’t be swayed by them. The money behind these shows is huge; there is nothing good about them  (Circuses Quotes) I hear an almost inaudible but pervasive discontent with the price we pay for our current materialism. And I hear a fluttering of hope that there might be more to life than bread and circuses  (Circuses Quotes) We must educate the public. The average person has no idea of what’s going on in factory farms, in laboratories, circuses, roadside zoos or rodeos  (Circuses Quotes) The people that once bestowed commands, consulships, legions, and all else, now concerns itself no more, and longs eagerly for just two things: bread and circuses!  (Circuses Quotes) I became very critical of zoos and circuses and keeping animals in captivity. I wish it was against the law  (Circuses Quotes) Bolivia recently did what every country should do - banned the use of animals in circuses  (Circuses Quotes) Television has always been a conversation. Movies come along and they’re kind of like three-ring circuses, and there’s a new one next week  (Circuses Quotes) I read the Romans had bread and circuses. We had home relief and boxing  (Circuses Quotes) There is no excuse for keeping wild animals in amusement parks or circuses. Until our governments take action, we should avoid supporting places where captive wild animals perform for our amusement. If the public will not pay to see them, the businesses that profit from keeping animals captive will not be able to continue  (Circuses Quotes) PRINT FREE GIANT POSTERS
