GENESIS, 1:29 ~|
(as God spoke to Adam & Eve)
"And behold, I have given you every herb-bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree-yielding seed;
to you it shall be for meat."
Krishna (Bhagavad Gita, As It Is, 9:26) If one offers me
with love and devotion a leaf, flower, fruit or water, I will accept it.
Albert Einstein (1879-1955) ~ "Nothing will benefit human health
and increase the chances for survival of life on earth
as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet."
Net~Quote: Einstein was a genius. Einstein was a vegetarian.
Mere coincidence? I think not!
Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) ~ I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look on the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) ~ My refusing to eat flesh occasioned an inconvenience, and I was frequently chided for my singularity, but with this lighter repast I made the greater progress, from greater clearness of head and quicker comprehension. Holy Bible (Isaiah 1:11, 1:15-16) "To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me," saith the Lord. "I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he-goats... ...and when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you; yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear.
Your hands are full of blood. Wash you, make you clean;
put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes."
Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) ~ It ill becomes us to invoke in our daily prayers the blessings of God, the compassionate, if we in turn will not practice elementary compassion toward our fellow creatures. Joseph Wood Krutch (1893-1970) ~ When a man wantonly destroys one of the works of man, we call him "vandal." When he wantonly destroys one of the works of God, we call him "sportsman."
If slaughterhouses had glass walls,
we would all be vegetarians. - L. McCartney
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) ~ "How can we ourselves find peace, when we are the living graves of murdered animals?"
"The average life expectancy of a meat-eater is 63. I am on the verge of 85 and still work as hard as ever. I have lived quite long enough and I am trying to die; but I simply cannot do it. A single beef steak would finish me; but I cannot bring myself to swallow it. I am oppressed with a dread of living forever. That is the only disadvantage of vegetarianism." (GBS)
Eat your veggies,
not your friends.
~ Linda McCartney
Dr. J.H. Kellogg (1852-1943) ~ Flesh foods are not the best nourishment for human beings and were not the food of our primitive ancestors. There is nothing necessary or desirable for human nutrition to be found in meats or flesh foods which is not found in and derived from plant foods.
