Most vegetarians look so much like the food they eat that they can be classified as cannibals.
Vegetarianism is harmless enough, though it is apt to fill a man with wind and self-righteousness.
It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favor of vegetarianism, while the wolf remains of a different opinion.
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.
When a man of normal habits is ill, everyone hastens to assure him that he is going to recover. When a vegetarian is ill (which fortunately very seldom happens), everyone assures him that he is going to die, and that they told him so, and that it serves him right. They implore him to take at least a little gravy, so as to give himself a chance of lasting out the night.
A mind of the calibre of mine cannot derive its nutriment from cows.
