Animal considerations

As for man, of course, he doesn’t even consider himself an animal – which considering the way he considers them, is probably all things considered the only considerate thing about him.
— Cleveland Amory, 1974

and quoted in Animal Rights/Human Rights: Entanglements of Oppression and Liberation, by David Nibert.

I have searched for this quote for many years. And for some reason was unable to find it. Until on December 29, 2015 – I Found It!

The Original Post

“Considering the inconsiderate way in which man considers other animals it could be considered the only considerate thing about him that he does not consider himself to be one.”

This is from Omni Magazine c 1980. If anyone has the original author or any corrections to the quote please do let me know. It is a long time since I last saw the magazine, and the quote is from memory.
