If you’re buying animal products and can go to the farm and actually see how the animals are looked after, yes, that’s an important point. That’s definitely the best way of assuring yourself that the animals are being well treated.  (Peter Singer Quotes) It is a mistake to assume that the law should always enforce morality  (Peter Singer Quotes) The future of the world depends on how well we meet it  (Peter Singer Quotes) If you earn a lot of money, you can give away a lot of money  (Peter Singer Quotes) But I think the majority of cows, and even more so chickens and pigs, are leading pretty miserable lives  (Peter Singer Quotes) If we can put a man on the moon and sequence the human genome, we should be able to devise something close to a universal digital public library  (Peter Singer Quotes) The new freedom of expression brought by the Internet goes far beyond politics. People relate to each other in new ways, posing questions about how we should respond to people when all that we know about them is what we have learned through a medium that permits all kinds of anonymity and deception  (Peter Singer Quotes) Human decision-making is complex. On our own, our tendency to yield to short-term temptations, and even to addictions, may be too strong for our rational, long-term planning  (Peter Singer Quotes) Do business managers have a commitment to anything more than the success of their company and to making money? It would be hard to say that they do. Indeed, many business leaders deny that there is any conflict between self-interest and the interests of all  (Peter Singer Quotes) I honestly don’t know, but if America continues to refuse to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, I see a bleak future not only for American society, but for the world as a whole. This is a global problem that is not going away, and the United States is an obstacle to solving it  (Peter Singer Quotes) Well the real concept of basic needs if you cut it right down are simply the physical needs that are unavoidable for all of us. So to have enough calories to keep our bodies going. Have shelter from extreme elements. To have water that is safe to drink, So I think that’s the core of it  (Peter Singer Quotes) Philosophy ought to question the basic assumptions of the age. Thinking through, critically and carefully, what most of us take for granted is, I believe, the chief task of philosophy, and the task that makes philosophy a worthwhile activity  (Peter Singer Quotes) The problem is not with the athletes, but with us. No matter how blatant the drug use may be, we don’t stop watching the Tour de France. Maybe we should just turn off the television and get on our own bikes  (Peter Singer Quotes) Should one break in and free the animals? That is illegal, but the obligation to obey the law is not absolute. It was justifiably broken by those who helped runaway slaves in the American South, to mention only one possible parallel  (Peter Singer Quotes) By ceasing to rear and kill animals for food, we can make so much extra food available for humans that, properly distributed, it would eliminate starvation and malnutrition from this planet. Animal Liberation is Human Liberation too  (Peter Singer Quotes) Christianity is our foe. If animal rights is to succeed, we must destroy the Judeo-Christian religious tradition  (Peter Singer Quotes) We don’t usually think of what we eat as a matter of ethics. Stealing, lying, hurting people - these acts are obviously relevant to our moral character. In ancient Greece and Rome, ethical choices about food were considered at least as significant as ethical choices about sex  (Peter Singer Quotes) There could conceivably be circumstances in which an experiment on an animal stands to reduce suffering so much that it would be permissible to carry it out even if it involved harm to the animal... [even if] the animal were a human being  (Peter Singer Quotes) We are not especially ‘interested in’ animals. Neither of us had ever been inordinately fond of dogs, cats, or horses in the way that many people are. We didn’t ‘love’ animals  (Peter Singer Quotes) Of those who die from avoidable, poverty-related causes, nearly 10 million, according to UNICEF, are children under five. They die from diseases such as measles, diarrhoea, and malaria that are easy and inexpensive to treat or prevent  (Peter Singer Quotes) Herbert Spencer is little read now. Philosophers do not regard him as a major thinker. Social Darwinism has long been in disrepute  (Peter Singer Quotes) Egoism... is not eliminated by economic reorganization or by material abundance. When basic needs are satisfied, new ‘needs’ emerge. In our society, people want no simply clothes, but fashionable clothes; not shelter, but a house to display their wealth and taste  (Peter Singer Quotes) Almost everybody accepts that some people can be killed. ‘The concept of ‘brain death’ - the belief that people on respirators can legitimately be killed - shows that  (Peter Singer 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  (Peter Singer Quotes) You shouldn’t say ‘animals’ to distinguish between humans and non-humans. We are all animals.  (Peter Singer Quotes) Americans think they’re the leader of the world and yet can say that they’re putting their economic interests ahead of the lives of - quite possibly - tens of millions of people who over the next 50 years will die because of floods or storms or tropical diseases or whatever. I guess that sort of thing makes me angry.  (Peter Singer Quotes) I think I get angry when people cause serious suffering or don’t alleviate suffering when they could.  (Peter Singer 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.  (Peter Singer Quotes) It was wrong to capture wild animals and confine them in captivity for people to go and gawk at them. And that’s basically how zoos got started. But once you do that, and once you have animals that have been bred in captivity, you’re really stuck with them in some sense. You can’t return them to the wild.  (Peter Singer Quotes) An animal experiment cannot be justifiable unless the experiment is so important that the use of a brain-damaged human would be justifiable.  (Peter Singer Quotes)
