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.

A Quote by Carl Edward Sagan on vegan, compassion, love, spirituality, morality, ethics, truth, justice, environment, ecology, god, and enlightenment

All of us cherish our beliefs. They are, to a degree, self-defining. When someone comes along who challenges our belief system as insufficiently well-based - or who, like Socrates, merely asks embarrassing questions that we haven't thought of, or demonstrates that we've swept key underlying assumptions under the rug - it becomes much more than a search for knowledge. It feels like a personal assault.

A Quote by Neal Barnard on vegan, compassion, grain, conservation, environment, ecology, kindness, starvation, and heal

Neal D. Barnard, M.D., President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Washington, D.C.

About 2,000 pounds of grains must be supplied to livestock in order to produce enough meat and other livestock products to support a person for a year, whereas 400 pounds of grain eaten directly will support a person for a year. Thus, a given quantity of grain eaten directly will feed 5 times as many people as it will if it is eaten indirectly by humans in the form of livestock products....

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.
