Quotes / Talking Animal

"Why do animated cartoonists use animals? For the same reason that Aesop, La Fontaine, Kipling, Beatrix Potter, and Kenneth Grahame did: it is easier and more believable to humanize animals than it is to humanize humans."

Donkey: Hi, princess!
Finoa: It talks!
Shrek: Yeah, it's getting him to shut up that's the trick!
