justice

A Quote by Ben Franklin on vegan, compassion, spirituality, soul, god, justice, ethics, love, environment, and ecology

Ben Franklin

When a human being kills an animal for food, he is neglecting his own hunger for justice. Man prays for mercy, but is unwilling to extend it to others. Why then should man expect mercy from God? It is unfair to expect something that you are not willing to give.

Leonardo Da Vinci

As long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap the joy of love.

A Quote by Howard F. Lyman on vegan, compassion, truth, justice, kindness, morality, ethics, eco, and planet

Howard Lyman

A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.

A Quote by Lord Baden-Powell on patriotism, peace, goodwill, justice, and world

We should take care, in inculcating patriotism into our boys and girls, that is a patriotism above the narrow sentiment which usually stops at one's country, and thus inspires jealousy and enmity in dealing with others...  Our patriotism should be of the wider, nobler kind which recognises justice and reasonableness in the claims of others and which lead our country into comradeship with... the other nations of the world.

The first step to this end is to develop peace and goodwill within our borders, by training our youth of both sexes to its practice as their habit of life, so that the jealousies of town against town, class against class and sect against sect no longer exist; and then to extend this good feeling beyond our frontiers towards our neighbours.

A Quote by Michael Lerner on peace, justice, kindness, and generosity

You, my Eternal Friend, witness now that I forgive anyone who hurt or upset me or who offended me…May no one be punished because of me.  May no one suffer from karmic consequences for hurting or upsetting me.     Help me, Eternal Friend, to keep from offending You and others.  Help me to be thoughtful and not commit outrage by doing what is evil in Your eyes.   Whatever sins I have committed, blot out, please, in Your abundant kindness, and spare me suffering or harm.  Help me become aware of the ways I may have unintentionally or intentionally hurt others, and please give me guidance and strength to rectify those hurts and to develop the sensitivity to not continue acting in a hurtful way.  Let me forgive others, let me forgive myself, but also let me change in ways that make it easy for me to avoid paths of hurtfulness to others.   I seek peace, let me BE peace. I seek justice, let me be just. I seek a world of kindness, let me be kind. I seek a world of generosity, let me be generous with all that I have. I seek a world of sharing, let me share all that I have. I seek a world of giving, let me be giving to all around me.   I seek a world of love, let me be loving beyond all reason, beyond all normal expectation, beyond all societal frameworks that tell me how much love is “normal,” beyond all fear that giving too much love will leave me with too little.  And let me be open and sensitive to all the love that is already coming to me, the love of people I know, the love that is part of the human condition, the accumulated love of past generations that flows through and is embodied in the language, music, recipes, technology, literature, religions, agriculture, and family heritages that have been passed on to me and to us.  Let me pass that love on to the next generations in an even fuller and more explicit way.   Source of goodness and love in the universe, let me be alive to all the goodness that surrounds me.  And let that awareness of the goodness and love of the universe be my shield and protector.   Hear the words of my mouth and may the meditations of my heart find acceptance before You, Eternal Friend, who protects and frees me so that I may fully engage in the work of Tikkun – the healing and transformation of the world social and economic order, the planet, and myself.

A Quote by Jimmy Carter on law, justice, lawyers, judges, liberty, respect, and jimmy carter

“The law is not the private property of lawyers, nor is justice the exclusive province of judges and juries. In the final analysis, true justice is not a matter of courts and law books, but of a commitment in each of us to liberty and mutual respect.”

Jimmy Carter (1924 -)
