God loves the plagiarist. And so it is written, ‘God created humankind in His image, in the image of God He created them.’ God is the original plagiarizer. With a lack of reasonable sources from which to filch – man created in the image of what? the animals? – the creation of man was an act of reflexive plagiarizing; God looted the mirror. When we plagiarize, we are likewise creating in the image and participating in the completion of Creation.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

The animals are those things that God likes but doesn’t love.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

I want to minimize the number of deaths I am responsible for.

John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

We are like a bunch of dogs squirting on fire hydrants. We poison the groundwater with our toxic piss, marking everything MINE in a ridiculous attempt to survive our deaths. I can’t stop pissing on fire hydrants… I am an animal like any other.

John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than the others.

George Orwell, Animal Farm

Yeah, and maybe he’ll grow fur, and a long, skinny neck and call you Mama.

Diego, Ice Age

I’m sure it’s just thunder. From, under… ground?

Sid, Ice Age

Tell me that was your stomach.

Manfred, Ice Age

That’s right, you losers. You take one step and you’re dead.

Sid, Ice Age

Sure. Climb on my back and relax the whole way.
