vegetarianism

A Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley on vegetarianism

It is only by softening and disguising dead flesh by culinary preparation, that it is rendered susceptible of mastication or digestion; and that the sight of its bloody juices and raw horror does not excite intolerable loathing and disgust.

Percy Shelley (1792 - 1822)

A Quote by James Anthony Froude on vegetarianism

Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.

A Quote by William C. Roberts, M.D. on vegetarianism

When we kill animals to eat them they end up killing us because their flesh…was never intended for human beings, who are naturally herbivores.

A Quote by Paul McCartney on vegetarianism

The medical argument for animal testing doesn't stand up. Even if it did, I don't think we should kill other species. We think we're so much better; I'm not sure we are. I tell people, We've beaten into submission every animal on the face of the Earth, so we are the clear winners of whatever battle is going on between the species. Couldn't we be generous? I really do think it's time to get nice. No need to keep beating up on them. I think we've got to show that we're kind.

Paul McCartney (1942 -)

A Quote by Ellen DeGeneres on vegetarianism

You ask people why they have deer heads on the wall. They always say, “Because it's such a beautiful animal.” There you go. I think my mother's attractive, but I have photographs of her.v

A Quote by Richard Gere on vegetarianism and animal rights

People get offended by animal rights campaigns. It's ludicrous. It's not as bad as mass animal death in a factory.
