A Quote by unknown on veganism, animals, animal liberation, animal rights, and philosophy

The agony of the rat or the slaughter of a calf remains present in thought not through pity but as the zone of exchange between man and animal in which something of one passes into the other.

A Quote by Joanna Lucas on vegan and veganism

When the darkness of the world seems overwhelming, unstoppable, crushing, when beings like Celeste, who love life and sing about love are being turned into meat and handbags by the millions every day, when the pain of loving them seems unbearable, the answer is NOT to stop loving, NOT to stop caring, NOT to add to the darkness. The answer is to love more, deeper, wider. To love despite the darkness and the pain. Indeed, to love because of it. To love those who need it most desperately, not only those we happen to like, to love because your love is profoundly, vitally needed, not because it is self-gratifying. To love as though life depended on it. It does.

A Quote by Sherman Alexie on vegetarianism, veganism, eating, food choices, choice, and necessity

How self-centered, how arrogant...  Imagine the awesome privilege of living in a society where you get to choose what you eat at each and every meal.  When I was a kid, I was a vegetarian and a vegan for long stretches… I was a commodity cheese-atarian.

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on diet, eating, raw food, raw, veganism, vegetarianism, spirituality, and obsession

Nobody seems more obsessed by diet than our anti-materialist, otherworldly, New Age, spiritual types.  But if the material world is merely illusion, an honest guru should be as content with Budweiser and bratwurst as with raw carrot juice, tofu, and seaweed slime.

Edward Abbey (1927 - 1989)
