Motivating QUOTES

“Our task must be to free ourselves . . . by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. ” “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

“Raising animals for food causes more water pollution than any other industry in the US because animals raised for food produce one hundred thirty times the excrement of the entire human population. It means 87,000 pounds per second. Much of the waste from factory farms and slaughter houses flows into streams and rivers, contaminating water sources.”
~ John Robbins

“...The real cause of hunger is a scarcity of justice, not a scarcity of food. Enough grain is squandered every day in raising American livestock for meat to provide every human being on earth with two loaves of bread.”
~ John Robbins

“The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined. If beef is your idea of “real food for real people” you'd better live real close to a real good hospital.”
-- Neal Barnard, M.D.

“If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian. We feel better about ourselves and better about the animals, knowing we're not contributing to their pain.”
~ Paul McCartney

Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.
~ Albert Schweitzer, French philosopher, physician, and musician (Nobel 1952)
