“Animals are my friends... and I don't eat my friends.”
George Bernard Shaw
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
"If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian."
"For as long as man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings, he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love."
"The question is not, can they reason? Nor can they talk? But, can they suffer?"
"The world is not a piece of machinery and animals are not articles manufactured for our use."
"Truly man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs. We live by the death of others: We are burial places!"
Leonardo da Vinci
“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.”
"Now I can look at you in peace; I don't eat you any more."
"So I am living without fats, without meat, without fish, but am feeling quite well this way. It always seems to me that man was not born to be a carnivore."
“Until we boycott meat, and all other products of animal factories, we are, each one of us, contributing to the continued existence, prosperity, and growth of factory farming and all the other cruel practices used in rearing animals for food.”
"Every time you spend money, you’re casting a vote for the kind of world you want."
