Anna Sewell

  • I am never afraid of what I know.

  • ... we call them dumb animals, and so they are, for they cannot tell us how they feel, but they do not suffer less because they have no words.

  • ... there is no religion without love, and people may talk as much as they like about their religion, but if it does not teach them to be good and kind to man and beast, it is all a sham ...

  • Give me the handling of a horse for twenty minutes, and I'll tell you what sort of a groom he has had.

  • Only ignorance! only ignorance! how can you talk about only ignorance? Don't you know that it is the worst thing in the world, next to wickedness? And which does the most mischief Heaven only knows. If people can say, 'Oh! I did not know, I did not mean any harm,' they think it is all right.

  • Now I say that with cruelty and oppression it is everybody's business to interfere when they see it ...

  • My doctrine is this, that if we see cruelty or wrong that we have the power to stop, and do nothing, we make ourselves sharers in the guilt.

  • I don't believe in religion, for I don't see that your religious people are any better than the rest.

Anna Sewell, English writer

(1820 - 1878)
