„Největší vzrušení při lovu není zabíjet, ale nechat žít.“

„Ty šlechetná, vznešená medvědí bytosti! Ty tvore se srdcem šlechetnějším, než má člověk! Kdybych byl já takhle překvapil tebe, zabil bych tě! Tys mne nechal žít!“


„The greatest thrill is not to kill but to let live.“ The Grizzly King

„Of all the odors of a camp, the smell of bacon reaches farthest in the forest. It needs no wind. It drifts on its own wings. On a still night a fox will sniff it a mile away—twice that far if the air is moving in the right direction. It was this smell of bacon that came to Baree where he lay in his hollow on top of the beaver dam.“

„And in my books it is my desire to tell of the lives of the wild things which I know as they are actually lived. It is not my desire to humanize them. If we are to love wild animals so much that we do not want to kill them we MUST KNOW THEM AS THEY ACTUALLY LIVE. And in their lives, in the facts of their lives, there is so much of real and honest romance and tragedy, so much that makes them akin to ourselves that the animal biographer need not step aside from the paths of actuality to hold one's interest.“ Baree, Son of Kazan

„He loved life. He loved the stars silently glowing down at him tonight. He loved even the gray, lifeless rock, which recalled to his imaginative genius the terrific and interesting life that had once existed--he loved the ghostly majesty of the grave-like pinnacle that rose above him, and beyond that he loved all the world.
But most of all, more than his own life or all that a thousand lives might hold for him, he loved the violet-eyed girl.“

„To steal book seems like stealing the soul out of someone.“ The Valley of Silent Men
