Vegetarianism Quotes

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

A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral

LEO TOLSTOY

I have no doubt that it is a part of the destiny of the human race, in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as surely as the savage tribes have left off eating each other when they came in contact with the more civilized

HENRY DAVID THOREAU

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

Then God said, I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground--everything that has the breath of life in it--I give every green plant for food.

BIBLE

Fundamental Christian values include preserving one's own health, feeding the hungry, preventing animal abuse, and protecting the environment. Vegetarianism effectively promotes these values

STEPHEN R. KAUFMAN

I do feel that spiritual progress does demand, at some stage, that we should cease to kill our fellow creatures for the satisfaction of our bodily wants.

MAHATMA GANDHI

Vegetarians, dropping meat, tend to fill up with too much starch. This leaves them no more healthy than meat-eaters, with constipation, indigestion, colds, catarrhs, coughs and chest complaints to plague them. Eating sparingly of breads, cakes, crackers, cookies, macaroni, spaghetti, anything largely starch, is a far step on the road to good health

HELEN NEARING

Vegetables are interesting but lack a sense of purpose when unaccompanied by a good cut of meat.

FRAN LEBOWITZ

Flesh-eating by humans is unnecessary, irrational, anatomically unsound, unhealthy, unhygienic, uneconomic, unaesthetic, unkind and unethical. May I elaborate?

HELEN NEARING

It is my view that the vegetarian manner of living, by its purely physical effect on the human temperament, would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind.

Albert Einstein

Vegetarianism is harmless enough though it is apt to fill a man with wind and self-righteousness.

Robert Hutchison

Better a meal of vegetables where there is love than a fattened calf with hatred.

Bible

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

Anton Chekhov

Therefore, vegetarianism alone can give us the quality of com-passion, which distinguishes man from the rest of the animal world.

Morarji Desai

Vegetarianism is a link to perfection and peace.

River Phoenix

A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.

LEO TOLSTOY

Fundamental Christian values include preserving one's own health, feeding the hungry, preventing animal abuse, and protecting the environment. Vegetarianism effectively promotes these values.

STEPHEN R. KAUFMAN

Vegetarianism preserves live, health, peace, the ecology, creates a more equitable distribution of resources, helps to feed the hungry, encourages nonviolence for the animal and human members of the planet, and is a powerful aid for the spiritual transformation of the body, emotions, mind, and spirit.

GABRIEL COUSENS

Vegetarians, dropping meat, tend to fill up with too much starch. This leaves them no more healthy than meat-eaters, with constipation, indigestion, colds, catarrhs, coughs and chest complaints to plague them. Eating sparingly of breads, cakes, crackers, cookies, macaroni, spaghetti, anything largely starch, is a far step on the road to good health.

HELEN NEARING

For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.

Pythagoras

Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet we make the same impression on Buddhists and vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our own.

Robert Louis Stevenson

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