[You Think The End Justifies The Means, However Vile. I Tell You: The End Is The Means By Which You Achieve It. Today's Step Is Tomorrow's Life. Great Ends Cannot Be Attained By Base Means. You've Proved That In All Your Social Upheavals. The Meanness And Inhumanity Of The Means Make You Mean And Inhuman And Make The End Unattainable.]

Samuel Crompton Quotes

"A man has a very insecure tenure of a property which another can carry away with his eyes. A few months reduced me to the cruel necessity either of destroying my machine, or of giving it to the public. To destroy it, I could not think of; to give up that for which I had laboured so long, was cruel. I had no patent, nor the means of purchasing one. In preference to destroying, I gave it to the public.[On his inability to keep for himself a profitable income from his invention of the Spinning Mule.]"

Quotes About Being Put Through A Lot

"All authority is quite degrading. It degrades those who exercise it, and degrades those over whom it is exercised. When it is violently, grossly, and cruelly used, it produces a good effect by creating, or at any rate bringing out, the spirit of revolt and individualism that is to kill it. When it is used with a certain amount of kindness, and accompanied by prizes and rewards, it is dreadfully demoralising. People, in that case, are less conscious of the horrible pressure that is being put on them, and so go through their lives in a sort of coarse comfort, like petted animals, without ever realising that they are probably thinking other peoples thoughts, living by other peoples standards, wearing practically what one may call other peoples second-hand clothes, and never being themselves for a single moment." - Author: Oscar Wilde

Quotes About Industrial Farming

"Michael Pollan: "The industrialization--and dehumanization--of American animal farming is a relatively new, evitable, and local phenomenon: no other country raises and slaughters its food animals quite as intensively or as brutally as we do."U.S. consumers may take our pick of reasons to be wary of the resulting product: growth hormones, antibiotic-resistant bacteria, unhealthy cholesterol composition, deadly E. coli strains, fuel consumption, concentration of manure into toxic waste lagoons, and the turpitude of keeping confined creatures at the limits of their physiological and psychological endurance." - Author: Barbara Kingsolver
