"Vegetarianism is not a fad. It is a great system of diet based on scientific principles, and when adopted, insures a clearness of mind and a restfulness of spirit which make for renewed strength and a fitness for life's duties. It is full of promise for bettering the spiritual, physical, and economic conditions of both men and nations."
"Nonviolence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming ALL other living beings, we are still savages." ---Thomas A. Edison
"I have made a satisfactory dinner off a dish of purslane which I gathered and boiled. Yet men have come to such a pass that they frequently starve, not from want of necessaries, but for want of luxuries." ---Henry David Thoreau

When a man wants to murder a tiger, it's called sport; when the tiger wants to murder him, it's called ferocity. --George Bernard Shaw
One farmer says to me, "You cannot live on vegetable food solely, for it furnishes nothing to make bones with"; and so he religiously devotes a part of his day to supplying his system with the raw material of bones; walking all the while he talks behind his oxen, which, with vegetable-made bones, jerk him and his lumbering plow along in spite of every obstacle. ---Henry David Thoreau
