A Quote by Alice Malsenior Walker on activism, right action, and action

My activism really is for myself, because I see places in the world where I feel I should be.  If there is something really bad, really evil, happening somewhere, then that is where I should be.  I need, for myself, to feel that I have stood there.  It feels a lot better than just watching it on television.

A Quote by Alice Walker on animals, animal rights, vegan, veganism, and animal liberation

The animals of the world exist for their own reasons.  They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men.

A Quote by Alice Malsenior Walker on love, peace, praise, truth, and war

War will stop when we no longer praise it, or give it any attention at all. Peace will come wherever it is sincerely invited. Love will overflow every sanctuary given it. Truth will grow where the fertilizer that nourishes it is also truth.
