Animal Quotes (1)

Enjoy these quotes about animals. There are some tiger quotations – a beautiful endangered animal that we need to do more to protect in the wild. (There are as few as 3,200 tigers left in the wild, in isolated pockets in fragmented forests, to survive they need territory they can roam across. Find out more at the WWF.) There are also cat quotes, and quotes about how humans relate to animals.

Tiger, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
William Blake

In waking a tiger, use a long stick.
Mao Tse-Tung

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated
Mahatma Gandhi

A bird does not sing because it has an answer.  It sings because it has a song.
Chinese Proverb

Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened.
Anatole France


  1. Wonderful!
    I am glad to read a few quotes about animal as well.

    So nice to see quotes being shared on a variety of subjects.
    My Best Wishes for,

    "Daily Inspirational Quotes"

    May we get inspiration from all of the wise quotes being shared here.

  2. I really like this quote:" The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated" - Mahatma Gandhi

    As here in Ireland so many animals are treated badly, mostly horses. You often read stories about starved animals or beaten ones (mostly by teenagers). I never understood why we would treat animals so badly , as they have are God creatures too.

  3. Eyewitness: I'm glad you like the variety of quotes, they can sometimes make us think or amuse us on a topic we don't usually consider sometimes. I hope you get inspiration too. Take care!

    MarieHarmony: Gandhi has some amazing quotes. I have heard of some horrible stories as well. And they are shocking sometimes. Thankfully there are people working to help these animals and they speak out for them because they don't have a voice amongst human beings. Just like children, environment etc, innocent life needs to be protected from abuse and cared for.

  4. IQ, I also wanted to share a Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him);

    Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet said, “A man felt very thirsty while he was on the way, there he came across a well. He went down the well, quenched his thirst and came out. Meanwhile he saw a dog panting and licking mud because of excessive thirst. He said to himself, “This dog is suffering from thirst as I did.” So, he went down the well again and filled his shoe with water and watered it. Allah thanked him for that deed and forgave him. The people said, “O Allah’s Apostle! Is there a reward for us in serving the animals?” He replied: “Yes, there is a reward for serving any animate."

  5. Eyewitness, thank you for sharing those lovely words of wisdom. Caring for God's creation is important in Islam and you've reminded us all of that.
