We've no use for intellectuals in this outfit. What we need is chimpanzees. Let me give you a word of advice: never say a word to us about being intelligent. We will think for you, my friend. Don't forget it.
LouisFerdinand Celine chimpanzees quote

I have shown that Swedish top students know statistically significantly less about the world than the chimpanzees.
— Hans Rosling

...people who believe in God think God has put human beings on earth because they think human beings are the best animal, but human beings are just an animal and they will evolve into another animal, and that animal will be cleverer and it will put human beings into a zoo, like we put chimpanzees and gorillas into a zoo. Or human beings will all catch a disease and die out or they will make too much pollution and kill themselves, and then there will only be insects in the world and they will be the best animal.
— Mark Haddon

Chimpanzees are endangered. Severely.
— chimpanzees quotation by Russell Banks
