Animal rights quotations: Hippocrates, Shaw, Hormel

"Animals are my friends and I don't eat my friends."
   --George Bernard Shaw, playwright

"The soul is the same in all living creatures, although the body of each is different."
   --Hippocrates, philosopher

"Pork producers are the best ambassadors for animal welfare in the United States.  They set the standard and do everything they can to make sure their animals have the best animal welfare."
   ---Daryl Olson, Swine Veterenarian, Hormel Foods

(Hormel literature, not normally given to satire or irony, says Daryl "loves animals and takes pride in producing top quality, healthy hogs.")
