b>Have any favorite Vegan or Vegetarian quote(s) you'd like to share? Let's make a running list of all the best quotes right here.

"But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh, we deprive a soul of the sun and light and of that proportion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy."
- Plutarch

"It were much better that a sentient being should never have existed, than that it should have existed only to endure unmitigated misery."
- Percy Bysshe Shelley

"Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages."
-Thomas Edison, inventor


" Humans who enslave, castrate, experiment on, and fillet other animals - have had an understandable penchant for pretending that animals do not feel pain. A sharp ... distinction between humans and "animals' is essential if we are to bend them to our will, make them work for us, wear  them, eat them - without any disquieting tinges of guilt and regret. It is unseemly of us who often behave so unfeelingly toward other animals, to contend that only humans can suffer... They are too much like us."
~ Carl Sagon & Dr. Ann Druyan from Shadows of Our Forgotten Ancestors, 1992

"The indifference, callousness and contempt that so many people exhibit toward animals is evil first because it results in great suffering in animals, and second because it results in an incalculably great impoverishment of the human spirit. All education should be directed toward the refinement of the individual’s sensibilities in relation not only to one’s fellow humans everywhere, but to all things whatsoever."

~ Ashley Montague
"A man of my spiritual intensity does not eat corpses."

~ George Bernard Shaw
" I think of veganism humbly and holistically. It’s about taking personal responsibility in a world so full of needless suffering. It’s challenging one’s self to open one’s eyes and question society’s assumptions and habits. It’s about critical thinking and compassion and how we would like to see the world evolve."

- Michael Greger MD, American lecturer and author
You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car." - Harvey Diamond
It has been said that if we had to kill out own meat, we would be all vegetarians.
