Vegetarianism Quotes

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

A vegetarian is a person who won't eat anything that can have children.

David Brenner

For the most part, we carnivores do not eat other carnivores. We prefer to eat our vegetarian friends.

Robert Brault

In the strict scientific sense we all feed on death - even vegetarians

Mr. Spock

Recognize meat for what it really is: the antibiotic- and pesticide-laden corpse of a tortured animal

Ingrid Newkirk

We all love animals. Why do we call some pets and others dinner?

k.d. lang

I think if you want to eat more meat you should kill it yourself and eat it raw so that you are not blinded by the hypocrisy of having it processed for you.

Margi Clark

To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being. I should be unwilling to take the life of a lamb for the sake of the human body.

Mahatma Gandhi

Think of me tonight For that which you savor Did it give you something real, or could you taste the pain of my death in its flavor?

Wayne K. Tolson

I do not like eating meat because I have seen lambs and pigs killed. I saw and felt their pain. They felt the approaching death. I could not bear it. I cried like a child. I ran up a hill and could not breathe. I felt that I was choking. I felt the death of the lamb

Vaslav Nijinsky

It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favour of vegetarianism, while the wolf remains of a different opinion.

WILLIAM RALPH INGE

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

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

PETER BURNS

Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

ALBERT EINSTEIN

People often say that humans have always eaten animals, as if this is a justification for continuing the practice. According to this logic, we should not try to prevent people from murdering other people, since this has also been done since the earliest of times.

Isaac Bashevis Singer

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

Gandhi

Among the noblest in the land - Though man may count himself the least - That man I honor and revere, Who without favor, without fear, In the great city dares to stand, The friend of every friendless beast.

Henry W. Longfellow

The animals you eat are not those who devour others; you do not eat the carnivorous beasts, you take them as your pattern. You only hunger after sweet and gentle creatures who harm no one, which follow you, serve you, and are devoured by you as the reward of their service.

John Jacques Rousseau

There is no disease, bodily or mental, which adoption of vegetable diet, and pure water has not infallibly mitigated, wherever the experiment has been fairly tried.

Percy Bysshe Shelley

There is no fundamental difference between man and the higher animals in their mental faculties... The lower animals, like man, manifestly feel pleasure and pain, happiness, and misery.

Charles Darwin

Vegetarianism can easily reach religious proportions. Refraining from meat on moral grounds serves to dignify feelings of guilt toward sad-eyed, furry creatures and substitutes righteousness for squeamishness.

Bill Griffith

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

Truly man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds them. We live by the death of others. We are burial places! I have since an early age abjured the use of meat.

Leonardo da Vinci

St. Francis of Assisi
