“The only animals I eat are crackers.”
Folks love to hate on vegans. Vegans love to proselytize (not all of us).
But somewhere in the middle, we’re in a daily animal holocaust of torture and murder and fear and abuse. And that’s no good for anyone, or our planet.
What if veganism could be about empathy, and inspiration, not guilt and scary videos?
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” ~ Gandhi
“Only when we have become non-violent towards all life will we have learned to live well ourselves.” ~ Cesar Chavez
“The problem is that humans have victimized animals to such a degree that they are not even considered victims. They are not even considered at all. They are nothing; they don’t count; they don’t matter. They are commodities like TV sets and cell phones. We have actually turned animals into inanimate objects – sandwiches and shoes.” ~ Gary Yourofsky
“May all that have life be delivered from suffering.” ~ Buddha
“World Peace begins in the kitchen.”
“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.” ~ Albert Einstein

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” ~ Anatole France
“We all love animals. Why do we call some ‘pets’ and others ‘dinner?’” ~ K.D. Lang
