"Hey, it's not my fault wolves eat cute little animals like bunnies and sheep and pigs. That's just the way we are. If cheeseburgers were cute, folks would probably think you were Big and Bad too."
— Alexander T. Wolf, The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs
"We weep for the blood of a bird, but not for the blood of a fish. Blessed are those who have voice."
