Selected quotes from Watership Down:


"Animals don't behave like men,' he said. 'If they have to fight, they fight; and if they have to kill they kill. But they don't sit down and set their wits to work to devise ways of spoiling other creatures' lives and hurting them. They have dignity and animality."



"My Chief Rabbit has told me to stay and defend this run, and until he says otherwise, I shall stay here."





"A thing can be true and still be desperate folly."
