Friedrich Nietzsche Quotes Quotations :  ANIMALS

If animals do us harm, we strive to annihilate them in every possible way. The means are often cruel enough, even without our really intending them to be so — it is the cruelty of thoughtlessness.

Human, All-Too-Human : The Wanderer and His Shadow, 57. INTERCOURSE WITH ANIMALS, Friedrich Nietzsche    Go to Quote

Where advantage or the reverse do not come into play, we have a feeling of complete irresponsibility. For example, we kill or wound insects or let them live, and as a rule think no more about it.

Human, All-Too-Human : The Wanderer and His Shadow, 57. INTERCOURSE WITH ANIMALS, Friedrich Nietzsche    Go to Quote

The animal has its rights like man, so let it run about freely; and you, my dear fellow man, are still this animal, in spite of all!"

The Gay Science : Second Book, 77. The Animal with a good Conscience, Friedrich Nietzsche    Go to Quote

I fear the animals regard man as a being like themselves, seriously endangered by the loss of sound animal understanding; they regard him perhaps as the absurd animal, the laughing animal, the crying animal, the unfortunate animal.

The Gay Science : Third Book, 224. Animal Criticism, Friedrich Nietzsche    Go to Quote
