Quotes

Temple Grandin: ...They'll be very calm. Nature is cruel but we don't have to be; we owe them some respect. I touched the first cow that was being stunned. In a few seconds it was going to be just another piece of beef, but in that moment it was still an individual. It was calm... and then it was gone. I became aware of how precious life was. I thought about death and I felt close to God. I don't want my thoughts to die with me. I want to have done something.

Temple Grandin: My name is Temple Grandin. I'm not like other people. I think in pictures and I connect them.

Temple Grandin: Of course they're gonna get slaughtered. You think we'd have cattle if people didn't eat 'em everyday? They'd just be funny-lookin' animals in zoos. But we raise them for us. That means we owe them some respect. Nature is cruel, but we don't have to be. I would'nt want to have my guts ripped out by a lion, I'd much rather die in a slaughterhouse if it was done right.

Dr. Carlock: It seems to me that you should be the one to design... the slaughterhouse...

Temple Grandin: [interrupting] We can easily do a way where they don't feel pain and they don't get scared.

Dr. Carlock: Did you hear what I said, Temple? I think you're the one who should design it.

Red Harris (of "Cattle Magazine"): I don't normally tell people what I'm going to write but Miss Grandin, this is a masterpiece.

Temple Grandin: Spooked cattle don't act straight. They get bruised, scraped, drowned... that all cost money. It takes a good half an hour to calm a herd, and that all cost money too. It's not a good way to run a stockyard. I believe what's good for cattle is also good for business.
