Vegetarianism Quotes

Vegetarianism -- You are what you eat, and who wants to be a lettuce?

PETER BURNS

I advance no exaggerated or fanciful claim for Vegetarianism. It is not, as some have asserted, a panacea for human ills; it is something much more rational -- an essential part of the modern humanitarian movement, which can make no true progress without it. Vegetarianism is the diet of the future, as flesh-food is the diet of the past.

HENRY S. SALT

It is necessary to correct the error that vegetarianism has made us weak in mind, or passive or inert in action. I do not regard flesh-food as necessary at any stage.

Mahatma Gandhi

STEPHEN R. KAUFMAN

The biblical case for vegetarianism does not rest on the view that killing may never be allowable in the eyes of God, rather on the view that killing is always a grave matter. When we have to kill to live we may do so, but when we do not, we should live otherwise

ANDREW LINZEY

It is beyond doubt that the chief motive of Vegetarianism is the humane one. Questions of hygiene and of economy both play their part, and an important part, in a full discussion of food reform; but the feeling which underlies and animates the whole movement is the instinctive horror of butchery, especially the butchery of the more highly organized animals, so human, so near akin to man.

Reason and justice tell me there's more love for humanity in electricity and steam than in chastity and vegetarianism.
