The Vegetarian Me - Animals

Peter Singer -
For most people in modern, urbanised societies, the principal form of contact with nonhuman animals is at meal times.

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

Thomas Edison -
Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.

Albert Einstein -
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.

Ralph Waldo Emerson -
You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity.

George Bernard Shaw -
We are the living graves of murdered beasts, slaughtered to satisfy our appetites. How can we hope in this world to attain the peace we say we are so anxious for?

Worldwatch Institute -
From the most immediate impacts - nitrogen contamination and retreating grasses - to the most far-reaching - loss of species and climate change - current methods of rearing animals around the world take a large toll on nature. Over-grown and resource-intensive, animal agriculture is out of alignment with the Earth's ecosystems.
