Joan Ward-Harris

  • The more active an animal is in its natural state, the crueler it is to cage it.

  • To me, squirrels are almost fairy people. They are marvelously round: roundly curved body, curved shell-like ears, curved haunches, tail either S-curved over the back like a mantle, or flying straight out behind the long slender body ...

  • Worry is surely one of life's more futile activities...

  • Wanton killing for sport, or euphemistically, for 'management' seems to me a poor way of demonstrating our higher intelligence. Predators hunt to live. Only man hunts for the sheer triumph of killing. It is a fact that only man is uplifted by the spectacle of an animal's death.

  • ... when humans interfere with nature something always goes wrong, despite good intentions. And once things are out of kilter, we cannot restore the balance.

  • Whatever sales people or sentimental books may state, wild animals do not make good pets. Captivity, no matter how 'kind,' is always cruel.

  • The price of survival is education and eternal vigilance.

  • All progressive legislation has always had its genesis in the mind of one person. ... One can do much. And one and one and one can move mountains.
