1. "It's almost funny, isn't it?""What is?""How some animals are worth more than others?""Well," he handed Konrad a sugar cube from a tin on the shelf. "It isn't just the animal; it's the type of animal.""Color, shape, size? If people pay for an animal based on what it looks like, what does that say about them?""It isn't necessarily what they look like." He frowned. "It's about where they come from.""That's silly," she said."

2. "Doch das sei abermals betont: angestoßen, politisch zu werden, hat mich nicht Willy Brandt, sondern der allerchristlichste Kanzler. Er, der sich aus Nächstenliebe den Kommentator der Rassengesetze, Hans Globke, als Staatssekretär hielt, er, dem das christliche Abendland nur bis zur Elbe reichte, er verdächtigte den Emigranten Brandt „alias Frahm" unterschwellig des Landesverrats. Sein Christentum katholischer Machart gab ihm ein, uneheliche Herkunft als Makel anzuprangern. Konrad Adenauer war jedes Mittel recht, weshalb er immer noch als Staatsmann gilt."
Author: Günter Grass

5. "Il est parfaitement juste et légitime de considérer comme "bonne" les manières que nos parents nous ont apprises et comme sacrées les normes sociales et les rites qu'ils nous ont légués par les traditions de notre culture. Mais ce dont nous devons nous garder, avec toute la puissance de notre responsabilé rationnelle, c'est notre penchant naturel de croire inférieurs les normes sociales et les rites des autres cultures.- Konrad Lorenz, L'agression - une histoire naturelle du mal"
Author: Konrad Lorenz
6. "Since my first discussions of ecological problems with Professor John Day around 1950 and since reading Konrad Lorenz's "King Solomon's Ring," I have become increasingly interested in the study of animals for what they might teach us about man, and the study of man as an animal. I have become increasingly disenchanted with what the thinkers of the so-called Age of Enlightenment tell us about the nature of man, and with what the formal religions and doctrinaire political theorists tell us about the same subject."
